I do not like to fill out those "50 questions about me" type surveys. I usually just delete them after I've read about their sender. However, last week, I received a survey and one of the questions (well, my answer to one of the questions) is haunting me. It was something to the effect of "name 3 character traits you dislike most in others". If I were the type of person to fill out those surveys, I would have answered that question something like this: The character traits I most dislike in others include dishonesty, passive aggressiveness, and indecisiveness. It's that last one that's haunting me.

I am a pretty bold and opinionated person. I wear my heart and mind on my sleeve for most to see. If you're around me much, you'll pretty much hear my opinion about something...ok, everything. Most of the time, I like to play "devil's advocate" to help people see the other side of the coin.

However, I am having a BIG problem playing "advocate" to EITHER one of the two men who may become the Leader of the Free World.
I don't want to talk about it. I don't want to share my opinions. I don't want to hear other people's opinions.

I am totally and utterly indecisive for one of the first times in my life. In a few weeks, I will be voting for the lesser of TWO EVILS!!!
Neither of them have a plan for our nation that I am 100% confident in.
Neither of them have a history that I am 100% comfortable with.
Neither of them have my confidence.
Maybe, after tomorrow, after the final debate, I will have an Ah Ha moment and will feel like I've made my choice.

Oh and I should add hypocritical to the list of traits I dislike...especially since I'm discussing politics.
