Today I got up early. Put on my favorite red shirt. Debated wearing Grahm's obnoxious elephant tie. Decided against. Drove to a little school two minutes away from my house. Waited in a ridiculously long line. Felt like I was about to take the ACT. Resisted the urge to belt out the National Anthem. Grabbed a patriotic sticker. And cast my ballot.
It was empowering.
Go vote. Seriously. Get off your buns, and go make a difference.
But please don't be a one-issue voter. Yes, gay marrige and abortion are important things our country needs to figure out. But they aren't the only things. Clearly, they really aren't on either candidate's agendas. One guy has no intention of legalizing them, and the other has had four years to take action... and he hasn't. No matter where you stand with these issues, I hope they aren't the only reason that you're voting for whoever you are. Don't let those issues be your only issues, because our country has bigger fish to fry.
(You know I couldn't resist putting in my two cents.)
