I am so glad it is election day... and probably not for the reason you think. Yes, I did go vote today! Richard and I took the boys and had to wait for a little over 2 hours to vote, but my vote was cast. I'm a strong believer that you can't complain about the way the country is going if you don't get out and vote. Make your voice be heard!
Yes, I'm excited to see who will be the new President, and how the congress will break down this term. But that still isn't why I'm excited it's election day.
I'm excited it's election day because my mailbox will no longer be filled with political fliers that I will just toss in the trash. My phone will not be ringing and some computer will not be filling my voice mail with political propaganda! Every other commercial on tv will not be a plug for someone's point of view.
It drives me crazy... yes I know you want to get your view out there, but think about all the money you are wasting. Do you really think people weed through 5-15 political fliers every day?? I don't! So that means more trees wasted and more garbage in our landfills... I thought we were trying to go green??
Do they really think it is worth the money spent on all the phone calls?? I think we need to step back and say... isn't there a lot of better things to spend this money on? I know take that wasteful spending and put it towards education, health care, paying down the deficit??
So, yes get out and vote... make sure your voice is heard!
