Russian Roulette. [View all]

For much of the last few weeks, Trump's chance of winning were quite low at about 16%, or about 1 in six. Fairly low, but it would be like getting any single specific number on a die which has six sides.

Then with all the talk of Trump's ties to the Russians I though of another 1 in 6 “game”. Russian roulette is supposedly putting one bullet into one of the six chambers of a revolver type pistol, and spinning the cylinder, closing it and putting it to your temple and pulling the trigger. Kind of the ultimate win or loose, even if you have a 5 in 6 chance of living. I certainly would not do it.

This election is a bit like the whole country playing Russian Roulette. Except the last check of 538 now has Trump at over 34%. This is like putting TWO bullets in the six shooter for the round.

So anybody saying they are all the same, or not going to vote is literally playing Russian roulette with the country and ALL our futures.

Get out there and VOTE, and Get out the VOTE!
