Today’s the (last) day–time to make your choice if you want to secure complaining rights for the next four years! But easier said than done, right? Never before–if my carefully calibrated social media feeds are any indication–has the presidential election posed such a dilemma to women and men of faith. It seems that both candidates from the major parties are morally flawed–some claim in distressingly equal measure–but we also know that single-member district plurality voting systems raise nearly insurmountable barriers to third-party candidates–a vote for them may appease your conscience but it won’t elect a president.
So what does a good Mormon do? Well, as a wise man once said, “you go to war with the army you have, not the army you might want or wish to have at a later time.” You’re stuck with the two-partyish system we have and now it’s time to take the plunge. Once you’ve discharged your civic duty, drop by the BCC with chips and guac and let us know how it went.
