Election 2004

Tomorrow Americans (ok, probably only about45% of those eligible) will go to the polls to vote on who shall become the next President of the United States. President Bush or Mr. Kerry. The "Liberal Weiner" vs. "The Right Wing Nut Job" as jibjab.com has proclaimed.

I will not use this post to tout my politics or say who I will be voting for, most of you who read this probably can easily guess who I will voting for, so there is no need to do so.

What I want to say is simply to vote, this election could very well set the domestic and international policies and directions of our country over the next 50 years, especially when one realizes the number of positions likely to open up on the Supreme Court in the next 4 years. So please, go vote it is a right we all too often take for granted. If you vote, you can complain and bitch all you want, if you do not vote you really can't do either with a legitimate reason.

Go vote. No matter what your choice, even if it's Mickey Mouse in a write-in.

On a lighter note remember these things:

Politics is supposed to be the second oldest profession. I have come to realize that it bears a very close resemblance to the first. Ronald Reagan (1911 - 2004)

And that politics is actually a compound word, coming from "poly" meaning many and "tics" meaning blood sucking animals.
