Happy Voting!

Happy Voting!

Although you can't tell by my lack of political posts, I'm a political junkie. And I don't mean just during election time. I mean I'm a year-round junkie. I'm almost too ashamed to admit that I finally just heard that acid trip of a song "Gangman Style" for the first time last week. Mostly because when I'm in the car all I listen to is NPR. All. the. time. I wish I were exaggerating...

As far as our political views are concerned, James and I sometimes sit on opposite ends of the fence. And that's okay. In fact, sometimes it's a good thing. Sometimes it forces me to adopt a new perspective on something that I'm so ardently against and vice-versa. Sometimes it forces me to inspect all the candidates more closely. It certainly forces me to make sure I know my P's and Q's at all times in case I get blindsided by a sneak attack.

I'm not going to tell you who I'm voting for today. Mostly because (a) I've seen what happens when people blog about politics, and it ain't pretty, and  (b) where would the fun be in that?

No matter what side of the fence you sit on, I just hope that you guys are all going to go out and exercise your right to VOTE. I don't care what your political affiliation is. I don't much care who you intend to vote for. The only thing that truly matters, is that you do it.

At the end of the day, you may not agree with everything that I believe, but I think we can at least come to the general consensus that we are blessed to live in a country where we can have some say as to which direction it's heading in.

So get out there today and make sure your voice is heard.


 Happy Voting

  1. I'll be glad to see all of the US political ads gone from TV soon! It sounds like a nail biter this year so it's going to be very interesting to see which way this goes. I'm not American but I have my views and know which way I would like to see win the election :)

    1. No kidding. I was finally able to watch cable television yesterday without fear of being brainwashed by attack ads.

      I love that even though your Canadian, you still keep up with what's going on in other parts of the world. If only more Americans felt that way about other countries...

  4. I know. It's a lovely thing, isn't it? We need to be more aware of the fact that freedom is not something that can just be taken for granted. Despite what has already happened at the polls, and how Americans feel about it, we all have a voice.

    I found you through a GFC Blog Hop Party from a couple weeks back. Love your blog already! So, I'm your newest follower and I hope you will come over and follow back!
