I'm giving up on the 2016 election, and it's very liberating.

I've had it with the 2016 election. I'm done. There is no universe in which I'm voting for Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton. They're both corrupt con-artists who will be horribly divisive Presidents with zero respect for the law or the office.

Plenty of people will vote for them in the upcoming election, and that's fine. I won't be one of them. I'll abstain. I'm not voting for either one of "those people" as Robert E. Lee used to refer to the opposing forces.

Earlier today, I tweeted this, and judging from how it was received, I think there are others out there who have also decided that we're done with this shit-show.

I'm out. I'll still be blogging, but we'll maybe shift focus for awhile. The thing is, it's liberating. I don't care about the Hillary e-mail scandal anymore. I mean, I now accept that she won't ever face any charges or consequences whatsoever. I've accepted that. I hope she really just rubs everyone's face in it at some point with another "like with a cloth" kind of comment.

Heck, I hope Trump just starts having rallies where he has WWF style fights in the crowds. Maybe he can hit someone with a folding chair.

I just don't care anymore. 

I'm going to focus on the things that I can control, like the temperature in my smoker. I really need to get better at smoking chicken and ribs, anyway. I'm also going to focus more on just enjoying my day and not letting the nasty business of politics intrude on it. I need to get back to writing some blog posts for Fig. That made me happy. I'm going to do things that bring happiness and enjoyment rather than frustration and cynicism.

I already feel better. Enjoy your election, everyone else.
