We’re on the eve of the 2018 midterm elections, and you already know what that means – an end to the campaign ad madness. Thank God! Until then, we can expect the partisan media to ramp up their rhetoric about the importance of this election, which is supposedly the most important election of our lifetime.
Here’s the truth: Although the executive branch isn’t on the ballot tomorrow, there are over 3 million executive branch employees. Americans only vote for one of them – the President. All told, Americans vote for less than 1% of government – the rest are nominated or hired after the fact, and very few are ever fired or laid off. Even in swing states, the chances of a single vote making a difference are so small, there’s a better chance of winning the lottery.
With government power ever expanding, the impact of votes is smaller. If anything this is the LEAST important election of our lifetime. Republicans and Democrats are 95% the same, and there isn’t a damn thing a vote can change about that. The midterms present yet another illusion of choice.
