Chomsky's eight points in favor of lesser evil voting contains certain ideals that I would say might currently not be upheld during this years election. One of the main things that Chomsky argues is that voting should not be in "retaliation towards major party candidates who fail to reflect our values, or of a corrupt system designed to limit choices to those acceptable to corporate elites." However, I feel like this might be the way that many people will be voting in this year's election: against a corrupt system and mainly in retaliation of a major part candidate. Although Chomsky says that voting should not be any bit of personal self-expression as well, I think that this is something we are seeing people exhibiting in their voting habits this year. Mainly the aspect of retaliation is a contradiction to what I believe we will see this year though. People understand that four more years with Trump as their president will lead to even more suffering, and to be honest, I think we've all had enough. That's why I think more people are using their vote this year as a retaliation. They might not see either candidate as one that really represents their views on issues, but at least one will hopefully start to lead the country in a better direction than we are currently going in. Neither is ideal, but in a certain way they are settling for the lesser of the two evils, but again this is all based on personal opinion, so it may be different depending on the person.
