The day you have no choice but to decide

Today’s the big day.

Presidential elections are rare, extremely significant events with inexactitude.

There’s never an ideal candidate; for example neither Obama or Romney matches an economic conservative, liberal view on social policies and military spending. You have to pick the candidate that is closest to your political beliefs.

However imperfect, you have to vote. You have to make the effort to vote because you are ultimately responsible; not to mention as my Mom says, men and women died for the cause.

The ideal candidate will never exist, and even if they did chances are the President’s actions almost always get reversed in office.

Despite the uncertainty, unhappiness, and unpredictability, you have to decide. In fact, more people should treat life like the election. You shouldn’t fence sit nor use hedging language; you have to be willing to be wrong. To the victor go the spoils?
