This is a tough one to write. In the wee hours of November 9th, it was announced Donald Trump would be our nation’s 45th President of the United States. Typing that sentence, I feel as if I’m living in the world of Demolition Man… and we all got served a rat burger.
“A vote for the lesser of two evils, is still evil.” It’s an often repeated line used by third party candidates Gary Johnson, Jill Stein and their supporters to describe 2016’s major party candidates. It’s also incredibly ignorant.
