Today is Election Day and if you haven't voted by now . . . get off your duff and get to the polls to cast your votes.
And I mean that even more so to you armchair politicians who can't form a single positive thing to say about ANY elected officials. Quitcherbitchin and GO VOTE!
Everybody in the vicinity of my desk has voted. I don't know if it was because they wanted me to shut up and quit pestering them or because they truly felt the urgency in getting their votes in.
You know what I'd like to see? How fabulously crazy would it be to see like an 85 or 90% voter turnout? Because if memory serves, it seems like only about 60% (? or less?) of registered voters in this country have been making the decisions for 100% of us. I really need to look that bit of statistical information up, don't I?
I'm praying that people don't go and vote for a candidate simply because of his or her party affiliation but because they feel that their chosen candidate is the best one for the job and will make a positive impact in local and national politics. Please don't vote out of spite but vote out of knowledge and the direction that you truly want our society to go. And use a little foresight if possible.
The choices we make today will shape our nation tomorrow for our children.
