Countdown to the End of the Presidential Election

I don’t know about you, but I am so over the Presidential Election. I mean for me I can care less who wins. I casted my vote and that is all I can do. It’s one and done. But what I can’t stand is that those who assume that my writing is meant to sway towards one side versus the other. They have me fucked up. Because the truth of the matter is, both sides show some shadiness if you ask me. One thing that I miss the most is the everyday pettiness, where people think your just simply insecure, versus making it an insecurity driven by a political bias. Because truth of the matter is. It has nothing to do with Red or Blue and all to do with psychology.

At the end of the day, everyone has already made up their mind. There is no point trying to persuade the other side as those decision have already either voted early. Or just simply have stuck their heels in the ground. The attempted bandwagoning on choosing sides is the everyday thing that I deal with as people never know what side I am on due to the fact that I remain unbiased and continue to make my decisions based off the behavior patterns that I observe on both sides. Where the nonverbal queues and voice inflictions can say a lot about the persons true intention along with the behavior pattern.

Another thing that I noticed is that the lines are drawn and friendships are being destroyed for the sake of which side you fall. Having a showdown with both sides of deflection. Having people use harsh acts or emotional traumas against each others. Convincing themselves whatever they want to assume according to their view point. Which the you’re with me or you’re against me act becomes superficial and a sense of petty pride. Because some of the things that you say, can’t be taken back. And the loyalties you show to a candidate that is not even someone who is always there for you is in the end something that you may soon regret once this election is over. At the end of the day, choose your loyalties wisely. You never know what you are at jeopardy of losing in this American Popularity Contest.
