Two and a half years ago, I wrote this blog showing how my voting philosophy has changed since I first started voting. Here is the meat of it again, but now I'm adding a new philosophy for the decade of 2010s.

When I first voted back in 1985 for the first time (yes I'm that old ;) ) I was told I'd have to always vote for the lesser of two evils. For 1985 that was true for me. I couldn't imagine worse than that.

About 10 years later (in the 1990s) I found this philosophy wasn't good enough. My choices actually got worse. My new philosophy became vote for the person I hate the least. I couldn't imagine worse than that.

About 10 years later (in the 21st century) I found that my 1990s philosophy wasn't good enough anymore. It got even worse. My new philosophy became vote for the person I think will screw up the least. I had a hard time imagining worse than that.

Now my voting philosophy had to change for this election we had in 2010 again because it wasn't good enough. I pretty much think they're almost all somewhat evil, contemptible, and screw ups. So now my new voting philosophy for a new decade is vote for the person that seems the least insane. I can't imagine worse than that yet, but I'm constantly being surprised with how it just keeps getting worse.
