So I have done my civic duty this grey morn and tonight my teacher has decided to have CNN’s live update projected onto the class wall so we can see what’s up.
If you don’t plan to vote today (and are in AMerica of course) then I give you the finger waggle of shame.
Yes it will busy (longest I’ve had to wait to vote ever) and crowded and some of the folks in line with you may leer or smell of tequila at 7A.M. but this is your democratic process and your country. You have to live here, and have to abide with the people in charge. The only reason I can think to not vote is that you’re planning a coup of the government to install either a more strict military regime or a socialist, flower in every orifice, hips pumping into empty air era. In those cases I could understand why you might not vote if you’re sure your revolt will come to pass but if you’re not absolutely sure that by this time next year you’ll be ruling with an iron fist or a soft, fleshy heart full of love then you should really vote. And hell even if you’re 100% sure you should still vote ’cause you have to live with whoever’s chosen too, at least until your strategically placed, hypnotized, living-zombies in the current regime come online.
So in summary – VOTE! or take over the world with zombies whichever seems easier.
