I was struggling with what I was going to do in the House of Representative race in my district.  In 2016 I voted for Don Bacon, voting for him wasn't option this year.  Kara Eastman is well to the left of what I would be comfortable voting for and she was the reason I voted for Bacon last time.  I've been struggling with voting for a Libertarian or Eastman and the Proud Boy comment just assured that I need to vote for Eastman even if I don't like her at all.  Luckily my mail in ballot arrived yesterday so I'm going to will it out and drop it off so I can't change my mind.

Letter to the editor in this morning's paper:

Exercise your right to vote

About 40% of eligible voters did not vote in 2016. That means that four in 10 voters left it up to the other six to determine who would run our country. You have to vote! You can't just abstain because you don't like either candidate, because that leaves it up to other people to make the decision for you.

Think of it this way: A vote for one candidate is a vote against the other one. Hold your nose while you cast your ballot if you have to, but vote for the person you dislike the least. Sometimes you have to choose between the lesser of two evils, if you will.
