An older woman who does physical therapy at the place I go to told me today that she’s not voting at all because she “won’t support” either side.
She’s CONVINCED that if Joe Biden is elected, our country will devolve into socialism (the “bad” kind, I suppose).
Her negative opinion of Kamala Harris made the wall behind her bleed.
I behaved myself. I really did.
I wanted to tell her that not voting is a vote for the status quo.
I wanted to tell her that she is able to get the PT she needs because of the Affordable Care Act (which she loathes, but I’m sure she’d be even more upset if she lost it and the PT she’s able to get).
I wanted to tell her that the disability payments she’s getting are because of the social contract that America’s citizens made with the government.
See that word? “Social“? You know…”socialism“?
I wanted to tell her that Nematode von Wartwhistle wants to obliterate the ACA entirely.
I kept my mouth shut.
But believe me when I tell you that I am over the Moon that I won’t have to see her again after this next Monday when I have my final PT appointment.
I’ve no time for her kind of willful stupidity.
