At the time of writing this, we don’t know who the next President of the United States will be. All that I can say, however, is that I am grateful election season is over.
I know it’s never actually over. Election season in America never will actually be over, but at least I don’t have to face it every single day.
At least I don’t have to face canvassing ads every time I open YouTube.
Nothing makes me want to contribute less to our democratic process than canvassing, but that’s just because I’m irritated by salesmen.
I feel like I’m getting a sales pitch every time I watch a non–skippable ad about voting, some pitch about this year having ‘the most important election in our history!’ Correct me if I’m wrong, but didn’t pollsters say that last election? And the election before?
I beg your pardon if I sound like I hate the democratic process. My issue is not with elections, but the canvassing around this election. I don’t like being told what to do or being harassed by ads.
Of course, I voted this year. I hope you did too.
Cheers, and God Bless America!
