Election Day! Go Vote!

This is a big day for our coutry and I am willing to bet that there will be a record number of people out voting today (or have already done so by absentee). Those that have read my blog before will know my political leanings and will know who I am voting for. Am I super thrilled with either candidate? Not necessarily. I haven’t been extremely political lately mainly because I have been busy. But I know this is an important race for the United States and look forward to the future of our country.

I only ask two things of you: 1) Go vote. Check maps.google.com/vote for your local polling stations. 2) Don’t vote for superficial reasons. “He’s cool” or “he sucks” or “he isn’t this” or “blah blah blah” are NOT good reasons to vote for someone. Become informed. Take a look at what you really believe and vote that way. There won’t be any one candidate who ever fits for idea, but you can decide what is most important to you and vote that way.

You should also stop by Google’s 2008 Election Coverage. Here is a cool map that will be displaying poll information as they report (and some other cool election maps).

Vote well.

    The only post on your website I’ve read was the one rationalizing the gang rape in Judges 19, so I’m pretty sure your religious leanings drove your hand put your vote in McCain’s box… I think it’s ironic that the anti-abortion religious people always vote for war (how many people have died at the hands of the US war machine in the last 40 years?).

    Also, you state in your article that you’re not happy with “either” of the candidates. You do know that there were like 30 political parties in this year’s election? :)

    Yes, that post was clearly a rationalization of gang rape. Try reading again.

    And yes, us “anti-abortion religious people” clearly love war. That must be it exactly. Thanks for your well rationed additions here.

    Oh right, I am just an uneducated religious nut, how could I have possibly known here were more than two candidates? If only you had told me before the elections; I could have voted for someone with a real chance of winning and bringing great things to our country like Nader or Calero…
