366 Project - Day 117 - "Presidential Primaries (Definitely not "Feeling the Bern")"
April 26, 2016 - "Presidential Primaries (Definitely not "Feeling the Bern")"
Today is "Primary Day" here in Connecticut... so I cast my ballot.
The thing is, I cannot, in good conscience, bring myself to vote for any of the candidates who are currently seeking the presidency.
I do not support Secretary Clinton...
I do not support Senator Cruz...
I do not support Governor Kasich...
I do not support Senator Sanders...
... and I most certainly do NOT support Mr. Trump!
I've never had this happen before. Usually there is at least one candidate I can rally behind - but not this year.
Being a registered Democrat, I cannot do anything in regards to the Cruz/Kasich/Trump fight to be the GOP nominee... I only get a say in Clinton vs. Sanders. Those were my choices.
There was a third candidate on the ballot here in Connecticut: Roque "Rocky" De La Fuente, a businessman from California.
A brief vision of us having a president named "Rocky" flashed through my mind. I could see him running up the steps of the Capitol on Inauguration Day - raising his fists high above his head, bouncing up and down as he took the Presidential Oath.
Like I said... the vision was only a brief one. A very brief one.
Clinton vs Sanders vs "Rocky"
Faced with those choices I was forced to vote for ________
