I’m angry Pete Buttigieg dropped out of the race. As a lost Yang Gang, I wasn’t sure what to do. I vote in June, which means my vote doesn’t matter.
I’m angry that I have to choose between:
- Old white man Bernie Sanders
- Old white man Donald Trump
- Old white man Joe Biden
I’m angry all of the candidates I could see making a change dropped out… especially Buttigieg. He was on track to possibly win the nomination. But Yang, Booker, Klobuchar I would have voted for happily but they’re weren’t viable.
I’m angry the USA has become a worse UK A shit show of politics. A divided country. A country of “my way or the highway” voters. Where is the United States that’s supposed to be home to freedom? Freedom of race, wealth, religion and bodily autonomy, immigrants, sex?
Despite numerous 1st world countries having female leaders (the UK had Margaret Thatcher in 1979!), the US has yet to elect a female head of state. It’s pathetic. It’s sad. It makes me angry.
I’m angry that maybe …the US is really returning to the place it was in 1778: A place for rich white men to get ahead but people of color, women and minorities to be forgotten about. This may be my first election when I don’t vote.
Convince me otherwise.
