A Choice?

To many the choice is stark. To me it's a choice not between the lesser of two evils, but the evil of two lessers.

A Choice?

It is not much of a choice
That upon us they foist
On the one hand bellicosity
On the other exudes mediocrity
One embodies outright lunacy
The other wallows in hypocrisy

But which is which you say
It's either depending on the day

I won't vote for either one
With each party I am done
Let's build something completely new
It's going to take you, and you, and you.
But together we can
Make a new stand
And rise up for all the people
Let's shout it from the steeple
And tell the old guard begone
We're creating a new dawn

We can't follow the bankers' tool
We can't follow the grandiose fool
Let's return to the people's rule.

Hear hear Steve ...
or is it Here here ?
Either way I agree with you .
In the UK we voted out of the European Union...and even though it will take some time adjusting to , and the change of Prime Minister ..I do believe we the people have done the right thing .
So I pray the right person will be the new President when the time comes for you also
Not an easy choice for anyone, methinks .
Bless you

Choice between deep sea and a deep canyon is not a choice.
