Cutting Off Your Nose to Spite Your Face

‘I wanted to spite my face.’

So I was speaking with an acquaintance, a former colleague, who it turns out voted for Biden. I don;t know this person very well and just happened to run into him this past weekend. He was, well, gleeful to be rid of Trump. I of course, reminded him that Biden was not confirmed as the winner. there are challenges and court cases to go through before the December 14th conclave of the Electoral College.

Voter Fraud or Wishful Thinking?

I don’t know why people can’t see it, but isn’t it strange that the same people (well, a lot of the same people) who complained about a rigged election in 2016 (It was the Russians!) are now saying any complaints of fraud or rigging are completely baseless. Of course, as far as they’re concerned, their candidate won the election so it seems the rule is this: If my candidate wins, the election was fair and honest. If my candidate loses, the election was stolen.

It’s a Strange Election Season

Being an “Anti” Voter Does Nothing For The Country

As the election draws closer, the murmuring, the whispers, as to who will win have become more prevalent. Unlike the media, or activists, most of us keep our opinions on that matter to ourselves.

Personally, I am interested in who someone is going to vote for (or has already voted for), not for any other reason that it tells me something about that person I probably was unaware of initially.

Seeking the Secular Vote

Why is it that among voters, we never hear about the secular vote? By that I’m specifically referring to Atheists, maybe Agnostics as well, but mostly the Atheist vote. As most of us know, there’s more than 10 million people in the U.S. that identify as Atheist. Out of those, probably half – or more – are voting age. Think about adding those raw vote totals to the total in any election. In some states, there are more atheists than in others, but the fact is that atheists exist in society, everywhere, and many are politically active should mean that candidates for office should seek out that vote.
