Why Wait Until November?

We can hold the election next week. Everyone knows more than they want to know about both Clinton and Trump. Few will change their minds. We’ll just blow through billions of dollars and a Sirocco of hot air between now and November.

Nothing will change, except our distaste for the process. People exclaim how important this election is. They’re all important. This time neither candidate is fit to be dog catcher, let alone president.

Presidents don’t save nations, much less bring universal peace or prosperity. They lead us, but even more they reflect us. Perhaps the candidates are so divisive because we’re so flawed and divided.
