Vote No One In 2020!

Public Service Announcement: This is a (hopefully) humorous post, and I am in no way seriously suggesting that anyone out there shouldn't vote. Quite the contrary. This may be the most important election in our history, and if it doesn't go the right way, there'll be little or no country left by the time the next one rolls around. So GET OUT THERE AND VOTE!

OK, with all that said, once again I'm bringing up the question I ask every four years:

Do We Really Need A President?

Seriously, between the House and Senate we have well over five hundred politicians representing the country and making decisions for us. Plus there are numerous cabinet members, joint chiefs and heads of various agencies overseeing the running of the country. Seems like that ought to be more than enough governance. 

And think of the billions of dollars wasted every four years by presidential candidates. Money that could be used to feed the homeless, strengthen our infrastructure or buy blankets with sleeves. 

Can we just forget about electing a president this year and go on with our daily lives as we try to stretch our meager paychecks and make ends meet? I'd definitely be very willing to give it a shot. And if it turns out that yes, we actually do need a president, then fair enough. We can start it all back up in 2024. I say we ought to try it.
