I simply choose not to play

I give up. I am done with the 2016 Presidental election. I have looked extensively at the two choices I have to vote for and I’ve found both candidates to be extremely lacking and wanting. No matter who wins this November, I firmly believe they will turn out to be the worst president in my lifetime.

There are issues in this election that are important to me. The problem is, for every one issue a candidate has that I agree with, there seem to be six others I do not agree with. This is the inherent problem with a two-party system of politics. This is why nearly every other democracy in the industrialized world does not have a two-party political system.

This is why most Americans do not vote.

PlayersHandbookThanks, but no thanks. I refuse to continue to play this retarded game of electoral Sophie’s Choice. Let someone else choose the lesser of two evils. Choosing the lesser of two evils still requires a person to pick evil. If I never picked an evil player character in Dungeons & Dragons, why would I choose to do it in real life? If I was told by a dungeon master that I had to pick an evil character to play in his or her game, I would simply not play.

That is what I am doing now. I am choosing not to play.
