Why My Choice Not To Vote Was Deeper Than The Quality Of The Two Candidates

-we fight about whether or not we as humans should have the right to basic health care, but we are okay with BIG PHARMA making BILLIONS in profits by price gauging “US” to the point we can afford healthcare.

-we fight to overturn Roe v Wade and take away a woman’s right to make her own choices, but we are okay with there being tens-of-thousands of people that have been in prison for decades (some serving life sentences) for possessing weed; something I legally order online and have delivered to my house.

-we protest peaceful protest/kneeling, but no one is fighting for education reform even though everyone of “US”, outside a very low percentage, goes through this outdated system that does not serve “US”.

These are only three points/topics/issues that I have trouble wrapping my head around. The third one is really interesting to me; half of the America protesting people kneeling during a song, because they feel it is disrespect to the “US”ofA Flag. Growing up we (I) learned, “Pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the republic, for which it stands, One nation under God..”, but we are no longer one nation (nevermind the fact that no one sees eye to eye on this God thing). Team Purple has helped “US” divide into two nations; one Red and one Blue.
