I have a dream today

I dream that someday a Christian minister will be deposed in a scandal when it is discovered that he didn't do enough for the poor and the sick.

*****

Today is the day. Vote.

You don't have too many civic duties. Jury duty. Pay your taxes. Obey the law. And vote.

Voting is your little admission ticket to responsible adulthood in a free society. Will I think less of you if you don't do it? Absolutely.

Am I going to tell you how to vote? Absolutely not.

Sing it!

Going on my lunch hour today! And in my state (MO) it is so important for people to get out there and vote. We really are divided evenly on so many issues that I think every vote will count for this election.

And Illinois is motivated, too.

We just went... one poll-worker (huh - kinda like a euphamism for stripper) held the squirmy baby while another played tic-tac-toe with Madeleine.

It always gives me a warm feeling, a renewed respect for our country, when I see how packed our polling place is on Election Day. I love that, even though there were way too many Conrad Burns stickers in the parking lot...

Does this mean that the calls will stop? I am tired of explaining that I voted weeks ago (mail-in) and if they keep calling me, I'm likely to go postal on all of the candidates!!!!

I was a citizen today, babe: I voted. And I also knocked on doors urging others to vote.

LOVE what you wrote about the scandal with the minister not doing enough for the poor.

That dream of yours is truly beautful.

I tried to vote but apparently they expect voters to be U.S. citizens.
Who makes these crazy laws anyways..

I voted first thing this morning along with most of the other Democrats in my state. Oops, was I not supposed to mention what party I voted for? My bad.

claire said...

Yes, ma'am. Done!

Hear hear. You said it, and I hope everyone heard it. Loud and clear.

I voted! But this buttnugget I encountered on the way out....grrrrr!

I blogged about him but I can't decide if it's better or worse that he refused to vote.

I voted this morning. My guy won, not that there was much doubt, with a 22% lead going into the thing. But still, yay!

Now I'm just waiting for John Stewart so I can have a chuckle before bed.

It has been really exciting this time around... (God does that make me sound old and dorky?) I've been checking updates all day on the computer... with baited breath!

Its kind of cool to be a part of it...

I voted 19 times! A combination of my need to please everyone, my indecisiveness, my chameleon-like ability to change identity, and my Farrakhan-like fascination with the number 19. Woo and hoo!

Only 17 more times until I have 19 comments posted here! Lucky 19!
