In one simple, scrawled upon chart, “moderately paranoid electronics designer” Christopher Lay solved a lot of people’s voting dilemma — who to vote for.
It's not an exaggeration to say that the the 2016 elections, more than ever, are nothing short of a predicament for voters. For many, the decision to vote is more like deciding between the devil and the deep blue sea than between a bunch of candidates.
Each candidate has their own following but what a collection of contenders!
No doubt it’s a tough task for many to decide who gets their vote.
But Lay has a simple, kick-ass solution for it:
Simple isn’t it?
But it’s hilarious as well and a pretty apt depiction of the 2016 elections so far. The main deciding factor between whether you’ll be going for a Democrat or Republican is decided by your opinion on a simple question: “Is shit broken?”
Having crossed that hurdle you can easily know who your ideal candidate is. If you believe Jesus "is coming back" by next week, Ted Cruz is your guy — if you have no idea, you belong in Trump’s camp.
Similarly if you think women are human, then Hillary Clinton is your bet — if not, John Kasich.
Lay's "random doodle" clicked instantly with people and became a viral hit almost instantaneously — so much so that it may just have turned in to something quite lucrative for the designer.
He now has "Is shit broken" T-shirts for sale, the proceeds from which will go to the Southern Poverty Law Center “to support their work defending Americans' civil rights.”
