Cast Your Vote!

Hello, friends. Super Tuesday is here, and it is your duty as a citizen of the United States to vote. I believe most/all polls are open until 7:00PM, so there's still time. No excuses! Don't let work get in the way either. Did you know that it's illegal for your employer to keep you from voting? Yes, they're required by law to allow employees ample time to vote. :) Anyway, if you're not registered it's too late for this go around. However, do what you can to get registered for the presidential elections in November. It's very simple. You can even do it at your local DMV. Here's some voter registration info for my fellow Missourians. If you live somewhere else, just search Google for voter registration. There are some very important issues surrounding the elections this year: The sinking economy and our devaluing dollar, spending, illegal immigration, and the war on terror/Iraq war...among a few others. Do your best to educate yourselves on the issues, and be careful while listening to the mainstream media. Whether it's CNN or MSNBC, which are more biased to the left; or Fox News, which is more biased to the right...they're all biased. Don't just let your vote default to the most popular candidate. Rather, make voting a true conscious decision. Vote for your candidate because you have taken the time to find out where he stands on the particular issues. The best way to do this is to look at that person's voting record while in office. Those records speak volumes, and they reveal the true nature/intent of the candidate. Remember, as you leave to go to the polls today, don't forget to bring your voter card and some identification like a driver's license (Bring two forms of ID just incase). Thank you for getting out there to vote!

Most commonly, I hear "buh-rock." But he's not my candidate! :)

Who voted Huckabee, who voted Ron Paul? I can't seem to find anyone who actually voted for Keating Five Scandal McCain.

I wish Alan Keyes could get some major mainstream support! But alas, the machine has deemed him unelectable.
