Have you voted?
This recent election has me pondering politics. Not in some existential way, but thinking about of running for office. I find myself wishing for someone to be honest, to say- this is not an easy job, sometimes you have to compromise, and the truth is more complicated than a 30 second ad.
If I were to run, it’s good that my family doesn’t live here. I think my politics are different enough from theirs that I would not want them to have to choose between voting for me and voting for someone who would represent their views.
