Democracy vs Demagogue

A guy I follow on Instagram (@humansofny) just posted this, and I made it into a bigger, perfectly square image so it could re reposted and more easily read on both Instagram and Facebook. It's pretty good! I think it gets right to the crux of the matter.

The polls are so close that simple arithmetic dictates that those who don't participate or who vote 3rd party are going to be helping Trump. It's interesting that a friend of mine can blabber about fallacies and write out equations to prove that I'm wrong, but if an analogous election had his children's lives in the balance, he'd be sounding exactly like me!
