38. I don't have much issue with any of what you just wrote.

And I'm not spending any time trying to convince people who to vote for.

Yes, some people (regardless of political affiliation) vote the way they vote purely because of how a loved one votes or because of a label or some other mindless reason. Again, that's true across the spectrum.

Call it ironic, but "thinking for themselves" seems to be a phrase about which there should be more critical thought. Clearly everyone is influenced by friends, family, strangers, events, environment, history, media, etc.
