As we all know, it is a presidential election year.
And this is how we are all going to be when the Obama’s leave the office. Yes, it is a sad year (well for those of us who like Obama as a president). If you are anything like me then you don’t pay much attention to politics. You pretty much know the basics. Trump is a loser (btw, type in loser.com in your web browser and see what comes up), Hillary ain’t shit, and Bernie ain’t all that either but he is a hell of a lot better than Trump and Hillary.
When it comes to voting, you shouldn’t vote for someone because everyone else is saying to vote for them or just because someone is a democrat and/or republican and that’s what party you are as well. You have to watch the debates, do your research on the candidates, and see what they have planned for once they become president.
It is also important to keep up because if Trump does end up winning because you didn’t pay attention to politics and/or vote, you can’t really complain because at the end of the day, you did not do anything to prevent it from happening.
There are so many ways to keep up with the presidential debate if you don’t necessarily like watching the debates on TV. You can read the local newspaper, get on to Twitter (I know about 95% of people my age have a twitter, so no excuse there), or go on CNN or FOX News and watch a short 2 minute clip of an hour plus debate.
Fact of the matter is, paying attention to politics is very important if you want this country to prosper. So go out and get educated and VOTE, especially people of color and women.
