I’m extremely upset by Jeb Bush’s declaration that he will not vote for Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton in the upcoming presidential election.
In essence, Bush is stating that he’ll forego the democratic responsibility and privilege afforded to every American citizen. I cannot believe that he has never entertained the action of voting for a Democrat. There is no doubt that Hillary Clinton is qualified to be president.
The essence of voting is to make a choice. The decision to opt out is not acceptable and runs contrary to the principles of democracy.
