    So Easy a 16 Year Old Can Do It????

    I voted as an early voter.  I am lucky to live in a state that allows early voting so I went last Saturday to cast my votes.  I am very proud to say that I have voted in every election since I was old enough to do so even the non presidential election years.  I...

    Nation's Historical Moment

    Today is the fifth time that I was able to vote in our nations' Presidential election.  Like myself so many other Americans stood in the rain, cold winds, and some sunny skies to cast a vote to ensure that our voice will be heard.  I want to say to ALL AMERICANS all...

    It Was a Tough Decision... But...

    I jumped on the bandwagon and voted for Obama. Most of my political views are conservative.  I'm pro-life and don't advocate gay marriage (although I don't care if other people do).  I don't believe my tax dollars should go to providing services for illegal...

    I voted for Obama because I liked his message of change. 8 years of pain, and suffering at the hands of a republican madman were enough for me!! Like the saying goes "of course it hurts...You're getting screwed by an elephant!" Ha! Go on home, Palin to the...

    I Voted For the Loser

    Yeah, I voted for John McCain. I think that Obama will be a one term president and that he won't be able to get much done because Bush is leaving the country in such a mess. I don't think McCain could do a better job but I don't like how the media idolizes Obama. They're both the...

    I voted absentee last week.  So conveniently through the mail, while everyone else is standing in those God forsaken lines.  But I'm really really freaked out right now because it doesn't look like my vote had much of an impact I guess I better get my money in an...

    It's Done

    Since I have a habit of actually going over each and every Proposition again once I'm in the booth, it took FOREVER-- the better part of an hour hunched over a plastic table with cardboard partitions.   But in exchange, I made my voice count in a sea of landmark...

    I Have Felt More Political This Year....

    Than I have ever felt before.  Perhaps it is age, life experiences, or just a sense of duty.  I have encouraged everyone I know to think of it as a priviledge to be an American citizen and have the right to vote!

    Voted Absentee

    This is the first election I am old enough to vote in.  I am registered in Virginia, but I am going to school in New York so I sent in my absentee ballot last week on Monday, for Obama :)  I'm anxious to see the results.

    How Much Does It Count?

    Yes, I went out and did my civic duty and voted today.  It was the first time I voted since Bill Clinton won the hot seat.  I had no interest in any candidates since except for maybe Gore, who was totally ripped off.  I like him more now than I did then but...
