Just a friendly reminder to all of my U.S. friends. Please take time today to vote.
I don't care what party you're with, or what 'side' you claim for your own. It's part of our process, so please take part.
And just in case you're thinking of bowing out because:
1. You're too busy.
2. It's rigged and my vote doesn't count anyway.
3. Any other excuse you can think of...
I've been around long enough to hear most of them. I'm not buying it. Well, okay, Sandy is a darn good reason. Other than that, if you don't vote, you can rest assured I'll be too busy afterwards to listen to any of your complaints about how it turned out.
This is one of the few things Americans do together, regardless of what they believe. A lot of people sacrificed their lives so we could do this. They believed in the process with everything they had. It may not be a perfect process. And it may have eroded a bit over time. But right now it's the only one we've got so your participation would be appreciated.
