Shrug's Guide to the 2012 Presidential Election

You asked for it!  OK, maybe you didn't.  It might have just been the voices in my head.  But I share many an opinion with these particular voices, so I'm taking their advice and holding true to the sentiment atop this blog that reads "Everyone's Entitled to MY Opinion".

If you're reading this, you're a glutton for punishment and/or disappointment.  But more importantly, you're wise beyond even your own recollection. (those voices again)

Seriously, this election is probably the most important of my lifetime.  It sucks that in such an important election, I'm relegated to voting against a candidate rather than for one.  But to quote Ayn Rand via John Galt "A is A".  The Law of Identity notwithstanding, I have a few specific categories (or qualifications, if you wish) by which I have formed my decision.  At the risk of appearing magniloquent or even pedantic (couldn't resist), I plan to state some of these criteria in a few upcoming articles here, starting tomorrow.

Take me seriously, take me for a sarcastic clown, take me off your bookmarks list; whatever.  Just take your ass to a polling place in November and exercise your constitutional duty to vote - regardless of who you vote for (or against).
