The article "An Eight Point Brief for LEV" argues that one should be voting in retaliation towards candidates that fail to reflect their own personal values, because this form of individual self-expression may be confused with "narcissistic self-aggrandizement." Rather, we should vote in consideration to the consequences of electing one major party's candidate compared to the other by using a cost/benefit analysis. This said, I wonder what the shape of voter ignorance will be in the upcoming election. An evil is racing against another evil (opinion!), and I think voter ignorance will appeal more to whichever candidate is less evil, rather than examining the candidates' policies. Recent events has negatively impacted people of all ages and backgrounds, which would inspire people to use their right to vote and create change. The number of disasters are so clearly intertwined with current policies in place, and I can't imagine any voter being ignorant to this relationship. Policies or not, I believe the personalities of the candidate(s) are much more telling of their competence to run a country. I do not think there is much of a bipartisan status quo today, because the United States remands radical change, but I am not sure if the status quo is examining the candidates' policies either.
