If Voting Changed Anything, They'd Make it Illegal

Hey all,

You know what today is, right? Voting Day!!!! And while the title is a humorous quote by Emma Goldman--one that we all understand--voting is still and always should be an honored privilege.

If you're an American, you've spent the last six months listening to all the campaign slogans, lies, truths, debates, history and bottom line craziness of the candidates.  All I can say is I feel for you. And I'm REALLY glad I'm overseas so I don't have to deal with it myself.  *sigh*

But as I said before, even with all the crap we've had to deal with this election, voting is a privilege many fellow Americans died to give us, so please everyone...take a few minutes and cast your vote. Even if you think it won't matter, your vote DOES count, and maybe we'll all be surprised. A candidate could rise from the depths and be one we're all happy to acknowledge as our president!

*sigh* It could happen.

Here are a few last voting memes to give you a chuckle on this horrific--I mean honorific day.  Enjoy!

Until next Friday!!!!

It is really a bad one this year. I will be going out to vote a little bit later. I hope there is a difference by the end of the day. We shall see.

People complain about the electoral college. Without it voters in rural areas and states with lower numbers of voters would stay at home. Their votes really would seem insignificant. That is the reason for the electoral college in the first place.

If everyone would vote the corporate would have a harder time controlling the country. It took voter outrage to bring about the Taft Hartley Act. It took voter apathy to allow things like a Time Warner AT&T merger.
