Happy Monday, New York, New Jersey and DC! Have an Orange Alert!
Why anybody doesn't think the election is important is beyond me.
You can't swing a dead cat without running into some person or business or organization wanting you to register to vote.
There's a reason for that.
The country's split right down the middle.
Very few people could (and likely will) decide this election, one way or the other (just like the last one).
I don't even care who you vote for, as long as you vote.
If you think leadership should stay the same, vote.
If you think we need a change in leadership, vote.
People get the government they deserve.
If you're too lazy or apathetic to vote, you're too lazy or apathetic to have the right to complain about what we end up with.
They've made it so easy to register to vote, even *on the day of the election* that there's really no excuse, people.
The fact that we peacefully turn over the reins of government every four years in this country without bloodshed is a minor (no, a major) miracle in a world like this, even before 9/11.
But there was bloodshed, and loss of life, and hard struggles, to get the right to vote for every citizen of this country.
Don't spit on their graves.
OK, end of rant. Back to the Fringe.
