The Sweet Meteor of Death may not prevail in 2016, but its future prospects look bright:
In an election cycle marked by unprecedented levels of distrust and dislike for both major-party candidates, 23 percent of millennials are just hoping it all comes to an end.
No, really. According to a recent survey conducted by the University of Massachusetts Lowell, nearly one in four voters between the ages of 18 and 35 would prefer a giant meteor striking the planet and the “extinguishing of human life” to the sight of either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump in the White House. …
The extinction-level event even won a majority of votes when matched up head-to-head against a Trump presidency, while 34 percent preferred it to Clinton.
Imagine the America of only 10 years ago accepting a choice between a shrill bumbling criminal and an obnoxious and utterly unqualified quasi-fascist vulgarian. Then trace the trajectory assuming our political system continues to decay at its current rate. Millennials will have ever more reason to support SMOD, as will the generation behind them — provided the USA is around long enough for them to vote.
