I finally made up my mind. I know how I’m going to decide in November.
I’m sure some of you are rolling your eyes. You’ve assumed all along the way that I’d just toe the party line. Fair point. But this hasn’t been an easy decision…
One thing that’s made this entire process more difficult is remembering the way things were a few short years ago. It wasn’t always this way. The choice used to be cut and dry. Not anymore…
If I were calling the shots, I’d like to think things would be easier. After all, I’d do a lot of things differently. Time after time I’ve worked over in my mind how a little more forethought and precision could’ve made my decision a whole lot easier. But I’m not in charge and neither are you. We don’t get to decide the way things are. We just have to decide how we’re going to respond.
In the end, I’m deciding the way I am because it’s hard to go against someone with such grit and guts. Sure we can debate his policies, but you have to admire the team with someone so passionate for justice that he’ll fight for it no matter the cost. This is a guy who just knows how to get the job done. There’s just no one like that on the other side. Besides, even though my choice isn’t perfect, it’s been nice to see such a formidable challenge to the status quo.
So for all these reasons and more I’ve made up my mind. That’s why this November when I write up my Christmas list I’ll be asking for DC movies like Batman vs. Superman and Suicide Squad instead of Marvel favorites like Ant-Man or Civil War.
Wait… did you think I was talking about something else?
