“I don’t have time” is a phrase that echoes around campus and that I find in my head more and more often.
Each time this phrase comes up I cringe. Why not make time?
This is the question we should be asking with the upcoming election, especially when any vote that is not for Clinton works for Trump’s benefit. When we only have two people to choose from, we need to make a decision.
I am not going to tell you who to vote for, that defeats the purpose of this editorial. I know you are educated and you will make the best decision for you.
We are all adults and have the right to vote. Let’s take responsibility for our own lives and make a decision: not a decision in an attempt to show defiance, but the best decision that can come from the two candidates that are leading the election-Trump and Clinton.
Too often, colleagues say they don’t know who to vote for because they don’t have the time or resources to figure out who deserves their vote. If more of us had made time a few months ago, we might have had better candidates to chose from.
As the presidential election approaches, take some time. Do some research for you and make an educated choice.
Don’t make a choice based on the angry opinions of those surrounding you. Make a decision for you.
Make a decision for your future.
