the comments to this sentiment will likely be littered with 'republicans this...democrats that...only ignorant people will vote for...' but in all honesty, none of our choices are great. get informed. vote for a reasonable person. if you wouldn't trust this person alone with a toddler and a puppy, then don't vote for them.
Truth. No-one in government loves you or has any motivation to act in your best interests. That's what family, friends and community are for. The government can never substitute for them, and it's naive and dangerous to think that the government "cares".
