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.

Sort of.

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  ________
