This post is being written on the morning of the election after seeing an interview on one of the TV shows. A reporter interviewed patrons of a breakfast diner somewhere in flyover country. At one table of three, only one claimed to have decided for whom to vote. The two others claimed to be undecided.
How can that happen? There really isn't much left to reveal about either of the candidates or, more importantly, what they plan to do if elected. Those guys demonstrated a level of indecisiveness that was truly baffling.
If they need an issue, the Supreme Court is up for grabs. And we all know which candidate will present the most danger to the Constitution as we know it.
Maybe they weren't very comfortable making decisions -- they don't trust their own judgment. They probably need a strong leader at their workplace. And so far neither of the candidates have demonstrated much leadership.
But in reality, they probably have made up their minds, they just don't want to tell anyone. If a fellow says he's voting for Clinton, his conservative friends will think he's stupid. If he says he's voting for Trump, his Democrat friends might try to get him fired or ruin his business. He has a right to remain silent. Anything he says can and might be used as an excuse to do him harm.
