The polls are open for early voting, so I drove to the Bedford Library today to do my duty. I followed the Vote Acqui signs, and showed my driver's license. With shoulders slumping and a sigh of resignation, I cast my ballot. I wish I could be happier with my choices, not going for lesser of evils.
And the question of evils is based on articles I read. I admit I am shallow and lazy in regards to politics. I don't dig deep into voting records. I am, no doubt, a victim of media bias.
I count on the checks and balances of the "system" to keep things sane, though it sure seems like the inmates are running the asylum.
