I Don’t Want To Hear About Politics Anymore

Don’t tell me anything. I don’t want to know. I have my own opinions, and I… just…I don’t want to hear it. Like, shut up internet, please.

Let it be known, in this year of 2016, that Brandon Scott is not above plucking the lowest of low hanging fruits for a blog article. Because, today, I will talk about…

*Cue dramatic drum beat*

…politics.

Stop right there! Nope. I don’t support him.

Or her.

Or them.

I know about the conspiracies.

I am informed enough. I know what is happening. I am aware of the stakes. And I am aware that people have strong opinions.

Just stay, and don’t freak out, because this is not one of those articles. This is not me preaching why you should cast your vote with one or the other.

In fact, this is the antithesis of that argument. I am going for the opposite of your Facebook feed. I am backing away metaphorically from the men and women who have a bone to pick with those who have a dissenting opinion.

I am not, I repeat: not, going to talk to you about our “savior” *insert political person here* for the next hour and a half.

Because I am sick of it. God almighty, I am sick and tired of hearing about it. The election is in a few days, and, unless you’re the majestic “swing-voter,” your opinions, and mine, will not change at this stage.

So, can we stop now? I am done thinking about it. Arguing about it. We are getting who we are getting. The figurehead of our political presence for the next four years may as well be already decided.

So, just, calm down. Stop flooding every space, take down the massive political flags, stop yelling, and please be calm. If you must continue to spend all your mental energy on this (even though, once you vote, you have no more immediate say in the matter) then perhaps prepare a bunker… or something. If that’s the concern of the day.

Because I am exhausted. A little. Okay. A lot. I don’t want to hear it anymore. I am actively trying to not think about it at this point. What happens, happens. And we can deal with that, and what we will do about it, when it happens.

Or, at the very least, can the social medias of the world add an anti-political filter? Because, while yes I don’t have to use social media at all, and I could ignore it, we live in 2016, and being disconnected like that is borderline socially unacceptable and isolating to one’s cultural existence.

So… just…enough. No more. Let it be. Let’s see where this goes.
