On November 4, 2008, assuming you are a citizen of the United States, age 18 or older, you have a responsibility to exercise your right to vote. Your right has been established in many different sections of the United States Constitution.
“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”
Of course I care who you vote for, but beyond anything else, I care that you exercise your right to vote.
The polls open in less than 8 hours.
Do what you must.
(And, if you’re in my neck of the woods and you want to watch the results come in with company, there’s a brand new sofa and a microwave available for popcorn, plus a big TV and a digital tuner. Come share in the event. You won’t regret it.)
Watch the results? I’m voting, don’t get me wrong, but I’d rather go to a party to have a root canal than to watch the pundits pontificate. To each their own, I suppose. I’ll hear the outcome tomorrow on the all-news radio.
Well, for the right-minded (left-minded?) person(s), I *could* be convinced to pop in either Dave or The American President. I’m in the mood for something hopeful…
I wish we lived closer, I’d take you up on that. Hopeful is good.
Oh, I am SO with you on this one. I swear, I went to the polls today ready to actually hit anyone who came near me w/any sort of politicking. Luckily, there was absolutely no one doing any sort of that thing. Surprising, but refreshing.
The wife and I have a nice bottle of wine ready for tonight. It’s my favorite kind of reality TV! We’ll be watching PBS so we won’t have to be interrupted with those vital local results (zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz). Forget about congress, we have to tell you who the new Dogcatcher is in South Bubbaburg! Oy!
