31. My poor, Libertarian, Fox "News" watching brother isn't voting

He was up for a funeral for a few days and kept saying "well, I can't vote for either of them" and I just kept repeating "that's good". I refuse to engage him. He once claimed that "20% of the voters in NC were illegals". Really? Because immigrants without documentation believe it's worth it to risk exposure and deportation to VOTE? Really? He claims there are downticket races he wants to vote in, but knowing him and his wife, they won't make it to the polls, so there you go - two fewer idiots that will be voting in NC

He makes minimum wage in Fayetteville, and works for a company that won't give either he or his wife full time work so that they don't have to provide any benefits, even though they always work them just up to the maximum number of hours allowable for part-timers. And they are SO grateful for these crap jobs.

It kills me when people who are so incredibly screwed by corporate America identify as Libertarians
