Below is an excerpt from an article that originally appeared on Medium, written by Ben Sasse.
Most of our country believes this election is a disaster. Unless something changes, America — the greatest experiment in self-government the world has ever known — is going to spend the next four months shouting that the other party’s nominee is the bigger liar.
Tragically, everyone knows that neither frontrunner tells the truth. My intent tonight is not to throw rocks. It is instead to start a larger conversation about what voting means and about the kind of candidates we want in the future — so that this never happens again.
