134. It really isn't difficult at all
Voting is not a sacrament. You pick the one you think is the best choice available on the ballot cast your vote. This is not an essentially emotional task or a particular challenge. I have never had the opportunity to vote for any candidate I fully agree with, so I just pick the one I agree with the most.

There is no compromise of principle involved here, the better candidate is simply the better candidate. I might wish for other choices, but what is on the ballot is what it is. I happen to prefer the better candidate over the worse one, so I vote that way.

I vote in every election because I would not feel right complaining about things if I did not participate.

It is not a fripping sacrament, it is just chosing one politician over another. Either way it turns out, I am going to get a politician, not a saint, but I prefer the better ones, even if they aren't all that great.
