I am just about ready for this election to be over and for everyone on the Internet to just calm the f*&# down. Actually, I’ve been feeling this way for the past six months. The polarization of political views is a dangerous thing and the fact that people don’t see that worries me. Perhaps it’s just as well that I can’t vote – I’d probably end up being a ranty, edgy, “Boo you!” voter if I could.
That said, I’ve been enjoying a couple of pieces about the election that offer a fresh, balanced perspective compared to the tit-for-tat tone of political advertising we have been bombarded with. Enjoy. And, if you can, vote.
