I voted in my first presidential election in 1968.
Each time, it seems to have been a choice between the lesser of two evils.
This time, it seems to be the evil of two lessers.
“Corrosion or corruption” might be another way of putting the choice we have.
Our country faces real problems that need real solutions. What we do not need is divisive rhetoric or untrustworthy leadership.
Before November, I hope to see some signs that the candidates care more about us than themselves. Sadly, we probably will get a heavy dose of sound bites, pontification, proposals without substance, accusations, counter-accusations and brightly packaged ads.
Maybe we should write in Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert. At least they care more about the country than just getting elected.
