Ian C: One advantage of the Two Party Swindle is that swing-voters usually decide an election. That is, the small percent of people who don’t fall for Us vs. Them.
That’s small consolation when what you actually get to decide is whether you’ll receive a hefty kick to the groin or a stick in the eye.
The first presidential election I could vote in was Hillary vs Trump. Also, I was not in a swing state anyway.
I suuuure felt influential as someone who didn’t fall for Us vs. Them /s
just to be clear, the /s tag means sarcasm. I’ve seen it used elsewhere on the internet, but I’m not sure how common it is understood yet.
