It'll be a tough choice come November

I knew it was going to be bad, regardless of how the Democrat primaries turned out, but now we get to choose between a radical socialist and a non-conservative who's jumped on the global warming bandwagon just in time to find it running off the road.

Either way, my taxes will be raised significantly, and largely to fund programs which are directly antithetical to my beliefs, needs, and desires.

Still, sitting it out or casting a protest vote for the Libertarian candidate (do they have one yet? is Ron Paul going to run there again?) is just making a lefty take-over that much more inevitable, I'm afraid.

This is not my favourite election cycle.
