It’s that time again, where no matter how you feel about it or whether you care or not, we’re going to be talking about the Presidential election for the next 2,000 years.
As longtime readers know, I love politics, but I tend not to blog too much about it anymore. Social media is a horrible way to discuss politics, since everything tends to get reduced down to 140 characters or an awkwardly misused meme. Blogging is a little better, but to be honest not by much.
Still, writing about politics is easy to me, and since the production on this blog has slowed lately (2014 and 2015 were challenging years, at times, for various reasons) we’ll see if this improves anything. (Considering that my best posts tend to be about weird-ass candy and board games and my lowest-viewed posts are about politics, we’re probably shooting for quantity over quality here.)
All that is to say—I tend to keep my political posts generic and largely without bias. Quite frankly, I’m not keen on any of the candidates of any party—even my beloved big-L Libertarians—so I sort of have a detached, academic view of it at this point. I’m hoping—and I suspect—this will be advantageous to all. In reality, I'll probably very quickly offend someone.
