Today is November the 2st 2010… The day many Americans will go to the polls…
People make WAY too big a deal about it and are generally too uptight about the entire subject.
I was reading a post from the Knoxville News Sentinel where it chronicled all of the violence and fraud surrounding voting thus far out of pure boredom. During this reading I found that not only had fraud taken place already but it backfired in atleast one case where the silly Democrats in charge had the polls set up so the voting populace could vote for only a Republican option. You would think that if you were going to screw with an election you would set it up to choose a candidate who personified your own views. Guess thats what happens when you can’t trust a member of your own party, but Harry Reid? Come on now, we as a populace can do better than that.
Of course there was also a man had shouted “You lie!” toward President Obama. Last but not least, there were the usual numerous cases of absentee ballet fraud, like Chicago during the 1920’s. Vote early, vote often!
Generally, I would say that this should really be covered under the entertainment section of the paper as a good deal of it is quite humorous. It is after all a civic duty so must be given a little pomp and circumstance and should be documented as such.
Honestly, I don’t care if you vote or not. If you do make the choice to do so, make a decision you think is livable. If you stay home, that’s great too. But then you lose the ability complain when you get the perverbial shaft because you were lazy. So enjoy your trip or not. But be nice to one another in the process. After all, elected officials are supposed to be the best and brightest we have to offer. No wonder the city, state, and country is headed for the toilet.
