I voted for Obama because I live in a swing state and I wanted to do everything in my power to prevent Romney from being in office. I was planning on voting for Gary Johnson though and I stand by him more than any other candidate. The thing is, I don’t trust anyone in politics. And I guess you can say I chose the lesser of two evils and yes that’s a shitty non-progressive way to look at the situation but I did what I thought was best this time around. From what I have researched about Obama and when I see/hear him speak I can at least feel the good in him. No matter what I am more comfortable with him being in power. And I’m not gonna deny the fact that he also does things I don’t agree with but really who doesn’t?
I struggle with being a realist and conspiracy theorist when it comes to politics & government so I wouldn’t be offended if you think I’m an ignorant asshole.
