VOTE!!VOTE!!VOTE!!VOTE!!VOTE!!VOTE!!VOTE!!


go vote folks! i feel like this is the most important election of my lifetime. i could rant about what we have endured for the past 8 years, and how long i think it will take to clean up our country and our image...but that's just wasted energy. instead, i'm choosing to focus on our future, to focus on all the great things this nation can accomplish under better leadership....
i got up early so i could go be the first in line to vote (my voting poll is a mere 50 steps from my house). i would have had to gotten out of bed much earlier to be the first in line! it was crazy- the parking lot was full, the neighborhood was full. there were kids, dogs, parents, grandparents, punk rockers and everybody in between waiting in line ahead of me. i would have been happy waiting 5 hours...the line didn't bother me at all. i know most people vote absentee these days, but nothing beats the feeling of standing in line next to your neighbor, casting your ballot, knowing that yes, you can make a difference.
and i got a sticker too. absentee voters can't top that!
