Today Is THE DAY

Vote

November 6, 2012

After all the pandering, mud-slinging, accusations, whining, and so many other words the day is finally upon us. The last day to vote. I am so glad I voted early. But then again there is a bit of a let down because I am not going to stand in line at the last-minute and talking to everyone who is also anxiously awaiting to exercise our wonderful American right to cast our vote.

The good news is that I can watch people get dramatic on Facebook and do their last-minute promotion for “their” candidate. I don’t mind if people say, “Vote for So-and-So” but when they say stuff that essentially says, “You’re a moron if you don’t vote for So-and-So” then I get offended.  It’s ridiculous. I may or may not like their candidate, but I sure don’t like their attitude.

As for the election, I do have certain hopes for it. I know that anyone who has read the blog or really knows me knows what it is. I hope they understand why.  My views aren’t perfect, but they are mine. And I don’t say that others are stupid for theirs. I have prayed about the outcome and pray for our leaders. I honestly think people would do better to quit bad-mouthing so much and maybe pray a little more for their government officials.

Today is a very important day. It is a right and a privilege that Americans shouldn’t take for granted. It is the heart of our country and we need to keep democracy going! I worry about the outcome and will be on pins and needles.

Please, Americans, vote your conscience! It is your right, your privilege, and your duty as a citizen of these United States!
