Do We Deserve the Right to Vote?

See the source image

The following are altogether preposterous and illegitimate reasons–if you can call them reasons at all–for voting for a particular candidate for president: you know, that job where they give you the nuclear missile launch codes. Millions of people will use these criteria to guide their vote. It’s a civic responsibility that hardly anyone takes seriously. So here are some of the reasons they give for voting for a candidate.

She’s a woman.

He says he’s a woman.

He’s black.

She’s Hispanic.

He/she comes from my home state.

It’s time we had XYZ minority member in the White House.

It’s “her turn.”

He really wants it, and has been disappointed so many times…

I had a baby-sitter just like her when I was little, and she was really nice.

My favorite movie star says I should vote for this candidate.

I don’t care if he’s a serial killer with the mind of a tomato worm–I always vote Democrat.

Eeny, meeny, miny, moe…

  1. I don’t know about you, but I don’t always want what I deserve. Not even sure what that looks like. But I can’t think that people shouldn’t be allowed to vote because they’re different from me. There are requirements for voting rights. Not everyone gets to mark a ballot. I’m so glad Christ didn’t say, well, Nancy, you’re going to get what you deserve.
