Politics – Who Should Get My Vote?


The first debate for the U.S. presidential candidates is going on right now. I was confused before I started watching. Both talk about economics, middle class Americans, taxes, and health care and how to improve it. Both say the other one’s solution won’t work.

OK, so I’ve been listening to them for over an hour. So far what I’ve heard is “I propose…” “That won’t work and here’s why. I propose…” “Well, that won’t work and here’s why. But what I’m really saying is…” “No, that’s not what you said. But I think…”

In other words, confusion and double talk.

And no, don’t try to tell me which candidate I should choose. I’ll figure it out on my own.

(OK, now I’m going back to reading other students’ essays about Cory Doctorow’s Little Brother.)
