No matter who you are choosing to vote for this November, odds are someone has criticized it. Both sides of the aisle have come under a lot of critism this election cycle and a lot of people have opinions on who we should vote for. However, they get their vote, but don't let them control your vote.
Whether you are voting Democrat, Republican, or Independent someone has probably disapproved of your vote. I'm sure we've all heard something along the lines of one of these:
•How could you vote for the racist bigot?
•How could you vote for that liar?
•Your canadite could never win.
•Not enough people are voting third party, your basically throwing away your vote.
Or my personal favorite
•How can you morally support that canadite?
If someone is saying something like that to you odds they aren't actually trying to get you to change your vote, most likely they are just trying to prove they are superior than you. There's a difference in advocating for a canadite's policies and insulting someone because they don't agree with you. Now I'm not saying there's something wrong with putting a bumper sticker on your car, or putting a sign in you yard, but there is something wrong with calling someone an idiot or a moron because they have a different opinion than you. Everyone has their favorite canadite and there is certainly nothing wrong with that, but you get one vote just like I get one vote. This article is not directed at any specific side or any political party, because I think it's something everyone needs to hear.
•Voting for Trump doesn't make you're racist.
•Voting for Clinton doesn't mean you're a freeloader or ignorant.
Voting third party doesn't mean you're throwing away your vote.
You vote for who you think would be the best leader. However, no canadite is going to make your life perfect, only you can do that. No canadite is going to make everyone love each other, it all has to start with us. So let's start by respecting everyone regardless of who they are casting their vote for.
