A Time to Vote

Tuesday, November 4, 2008
Here in the United States, today is Election Day.

It's a day where Americans will exercise their franchise. They will choose which laws, initiatives and propositions will become the law of the land. In many areas, they will choose which judges will retain their positions and uphold the rule of law in our courts. They will choose which individuals will represent them in our legislative branch, giving voice to their needs and desires in the hallowed halls of our government. They will choose which individual will act as our chief executive, leading our armed forces and becoming our face to the wider world.

Regardless of which laws you support or oppose, which candidates you love or hate, realize today what an awesome privilege it is to have a voice. In this republic, our citizens have the power to choose. To choose our laws, our leaders, our future.

Choose to vote. Choose.

I VOTED!
I VOTED!
I left my house
and I VOTED!

I think I'm a bit giddy from being in the house for so long.
