Vote!


Everyone is entitled to his own opinion, but not to his own facts.

  1. If you don't vote, you don't get to complain!

  2. Why this famous quote does not resonate with all Americans is incomprehensible.

    1. Because the Leader of the Free World and his millions of minions believe that: opinions=facts.
      Mr. Monyihan...one of my favorite people.
      I don't mean to be "disagreeable" but I do disagree for I feel that one of my Freedoms is to have an opinion and not be restricted by another Freedom and that is to vote or not vote. Gee, it sounds like I'm involved with fact and opinion - sorry.

    2. Actually, the reason lies in our post-secondary education system, i.e., academe, which has inculcated the belief that feelings beat facts. I'm exaggerating, but not by much.

  4. Voted October 17th. You may vote on the weekends. You may vote from your car. Many volunteers will give you a lift. No excuse.

  5. Amen to the commenter who remarked on why turnout is so low. After spending a couple of years doing volunteer work overseas long ago, and being in one country that literally had just given their people the right to vote, when I think of how hard others fought for this right (to which a responsibility accrues) and how much we take it for granted, it absolutely blows my mind. Thanks for this entry today!

  6. You should only vote for a candidate that you know and trust to represent you effectively. Candidates should earn and deserve, not expect, your vote. A vote for lesser of evils is still a vote for evil and therefore totally immoral.

    1. No one will ever be perfect. If you don't like the candidates, then run yourself! It certainly won't improve anything to let evil go uncontested.

    2. When deciding upon voting, "the lesser of the two evils," Opps- lesser of the two weasels, really causes a headache. There isn't any true "winning" any more...
