It is pretty obvious at this point that this year’s United States Presidential election is one of the most consequential in our nation’s history. On one hand you have a sitting President that is completely uncouth in his holding of the office; And on the other you have a doddering old man that is “profoundly decent”.
The boat for change has sailed both literally and metaphorically. The ‘Change’ candidate of 2008 in the form of Barack Obama has come and gone having served two full presidential terms. A hope for change has also passed us by in that in addition to not having a woman at the top of either ticket, our choices have been boiled down to two white men over the age of 70.
Aside from the ideology of these two men, I want to take a moment to draw your attention to the subconscious statement being made by the country as a whole. Specifically, as it relates to the Democrats and Joe Biden, he became the nominee via an unusual turn of events to say the least.
