The Importance of Being Earnest (when voting)

These jokes act as a vent for people wanting more palatable choices for president.  It feels nice to laugh along with others; I laugh too.   

But when November rolls around, I ask that you vote in earnest.  I know it's tempting to do a write in vote for Bugs Bunny, Stewie  or Peter Griffin from Family Guy, Elvis Presley,... in order to send a message to the establishment that you don't like what's going on.  Just like it's tempting to vote for one of the few minor political parties for the same reason.  

But I ask you - is it worth it to risk a Trump presidency?

More than one British person stated after the Brexit vote that he or she voted "yes" to send a message and not because of a desire to leave the E.U.  Look how that turned out.

Just please think about who you are voting for this year, and remember that each vote does count.  

Thank you.
