That said, I have to make an election post because it's all anybody is talking about these days; myself included. I will make only nonpartisan comments though :)
First, vote, people, vote! If you don't exercise your right to vote then you don't have the right to exercise your right to complain about the country, the gov't, etc. The first and foremost method, in our country, of affecting the policies of our country is to vote, IMO. (that's "In My Opinion" for those of you out there that don't know the lingo). Remember, vote early, vote often. (okay, not the vote often part)
Second, be informed! Don't vote for someone JUST because you like their tie or their hair or the color of their skin. Don't vote AGAINST them because you don't like their tie or their hair or the color of their skin either. Folks, we're electing a president here, not a poster boy :) What do you believe gov't should be and do? Choose the candidate that most agrees with what you BELIEVE.
Okay, I'm done now. I don't want any of you to come see my blog next Tuesday until AFTER you've voted. Promise??
