I VOTED

I've never shared my political views here and I don't intend to now.  But I will share that there is no better feeling than walking away from a polling place and thinking, "Hey, I just did my civic duty.  I excercised a right that people have died to give me.  My ancestors were Cherokee Indians and I just did something they could never do.  My grandmother was born before women could vote - her mother never did."

For those of you who don't take the time, or don't see the big deal - just do it once and you'll never give up the feeling it gives you. 

*hugs*

Totally agree here!
I may consider it "choosing the lesser of two evils" but at least I have the option.

Exactly. I totally felt that way about several of the races I voted in, but at least I could pat myself on the back for doing my duty.

And for the first time ever, I got DH to vote which was a huge accomplishment. *pats self on back a little more*
