Presidential election year is like plane crash

OK, I have seen many people expressing their political opinions on Facebook and elsewhere, so I guess it is time for mine.

I have been studying both presidential candidates.

First, there is Obama. He has been in office for four years, and what has he done? What?

Well, gas is higher than it has ever been. We have lost millions of jobs. He has spent billions of dollars on unnecessary wars. He has spent billions of dollars on banks that just laugh at him, hand out bonuses to their executives and take vacation.

Well, don’t even get me started on Obama’s health care plan.

So, I don’t want him in office.

Then there is Mitt Romney, who is the most deceiving and lying person there is.

If he gets in office he will raise taxes on us and the middle class as well as cut on Social Security some more. He has openly made statements that he is not worried about the poor and that they can worry about themselves.

I don’t want him in office either.

So I said to my wife, “What am I supposed to do?”

I can’t vote for either one not to be in the office, and I don’t want to vote to put one into office. So, what do I do about voting this year?

Well, I thought about it really hard this morning and came up with my answer.

This year is the first time I am not voting.

Why? Because this year’s election is like a plane crash. Yes, you heard me right, a plane crash. I am sitting in my seat and I know we are going to crash, no matter which one of those idiots get into office.

And as bad as I don’t want this plane to crash, I cannot stop it. I cannot simply get up and jump out of the plane because that would be certain death as well.

So, all I can do is get into crash position, hold on for the ride and, when we hit and the crash is over, hope and pray to the good Lord above that there will be survivors.

So, yes folks, no matter how bad we want this country’s leader to do a good job, it is not going to happen.

There is no sense in voting because, no matter what we decide, this plane is going to crash.
