How to affect the outcome of this election

GettyImages-151397786-article-headerSomebody just asked me what I think of the political conventions and the upcoming presidential election.

So I know for a fact that they’re not a Facebook “friend.” I smack those folks in the mug with my anti-political rants every other day.

So at the risk of pissing off a few people (or a LOT of people, as the case may be), here’s my take on the upcoming election…

Despite both Left and Right, and Republicans and Democrats and Libertarians and Greens, telling you this election year is “the most important, life-changing moment in U.S. history,” it ain’t.


Come the morning of November 8 (or late next January, the start of the next presidential term), I think you’ll find that things will be pretty much status quo.

Taxes will still be high.

Government agents will still be threatening your liberties.

Airline security will still be a bitch.

The world will still be on the brink of war.

And whether your candidate wins or not, you’ll still be pissed off in the long haul.

Rather than expend your energy on things you can’t control — like this election — the best thing you can do right now is focus on what you CAN control…

Growing your business by providing superior value to others.

Shift your focus off the political rhetoric (cuz that’s all it is, friend, meaningless rhetoric that’ll be forgotten after the election).

Go help some people.

Do business.

Get successful, in spite of the bastards.
