That's right, the moment we were waiting for when Joe Biden and Paul Ryan were to square off in a much-anticipated debate has come and passed.
So now, its time to debate.
The new format of all politics in general is to turn it over to political analysts and social media to tell us who actually won the debate.
"57% more people mentioned Obama on Twitter...35% Paul Ryan on Facebook..."
So here we are. We spent a night, some blood pressure, and a few beers on a debate that yielded us, personally, absolutely N-O-T-H-I-N-G. I just watched a Chicago Bears vs. Green Bay Packers game end in a 0-0 tie with 5 TO each. Or was it a 40-40 tie? Who the f*ck knows?
CNN, FOX, MSNBC, Facebook, Twitter, and my buddy the guy who knows politics but makes a meager salary and drinks too much knows.
We are at a point where every single categorical argument has a retort and not even the people we stand to elect can tell us what the future holds. They can tell us what they want it to hold, but they don't truly know. We should be okay with that.
What we should not be okay with is the past. It's history, statistics, things we've done as a progressive society and civilization both collectively and individually that should be championed at this stage of our nation.
If that point resonates with you, then I think the choice (or the lesser of two evils) is simple. Don't vote for a candidate who has distorted the past and who's past won't allow him to be open-minded about our future. Don't vote for Mitt Romney/ Paul Ryan.
