Today is — finally — the big day. Yes, the election for president which has been doing on for nigh on two years will, at last, be over. But, before it is, you need to get out and vote. I’m completely serious here. If you’re not registered to vote, then shame on you. If you are registered to vote, then get out there and do your patriotic duty.
Not meaning to brag or anything, but I’ve voted in every election — city, state and federal — since I turned 18 and all for a very simple reason. The way I see it, if I don’t vote, then I’ve got no cause to whine and moan. As you, dear reader dudes, know, I love to whine and moan. All of which means I have to put in a little effort to learn about the various races, who’s running against whom, who’s an idiot and who is slightly less of an idiot. As an American citizen, casting a vote for your elected leaders is the very least you can do.
*climbs on soapbox* There are people all around the world living in totalitarian regimes who would kill for the right to vote in or vote out their leaders. We have such a wonderful opportunity here in America and, yet, less than 50 percent of eligible voters actually bother to cast a ballot. Don’t be a bad American. *jumps off soapbox*
Regardless of who you vote for, get out and vote early and vote often.
