It’s Your Decision

As a citizen of the United States, you have a type of freedom that is uncommon in this world.

For example, you can decide that you will vote for a man because he bragged loudly about how great he was on a television show created to entertain imbeciles.

Nobody can stop you from doing that.

You may be aware that we live in a world of people with a vast array of experiences and needs. Knowing this, you can still decide that a person who has never taken any action, made any decision, considered any possibility, that didn’t benefit himself, is the right person to lead others.

That decision is within your rights as a citizen of the United States.

You can decide that you will forgive any evil, ignore any injustice, and accept any lie as truth if it helps you cling to your ideological touchstones and protects you from the discomfort of change.

Such a decision is yours to make.

That is the truth of our democracy and our constitution.

It is also true that if these are your choices, you are a person on whom the appointment of freedom is completely and utterly wasted.
