Get Out and Vote!

Plinky asked, “When was the last time you vot­ed in an elec­tion? Will you vote this year?”


Election 2012 Button

I vot­ed in a coun­ty ref­er­en­dum regard­ing a one-cent sales tax a few months ago. I vote in every elec­tion, so of course I’ll vote this year. Why would­n’t I vote? Men and women have died to win me that right, and I would be will­ing to fight and die for it as well. I’m not so fool­ish as to waste a chance to have my say in impor­tant mat­ters whether at the coun­ty or nation­al level.

The pres­i­den­tial elec­tion is espe­cial­ly impor­tant, because of the GOP’s war on women and the fact that I find San­to­rum espe­cial­ly insane. Rom­ney seems the best of the Repub­li­can evils, but that isn’t say­ing much. I’d much rather see Oba­ma re-elect­ed than any of the Repub­li­cans in office. It’s obvi­ous that most of the oppo­si­tion to the Pres­i­dent is based on racism, pure and sim­ple, which is an ugly, ugly thing (but not sur­pris­ing to this life­long southerner).
