Let Freedom Ring
I took Mia with me to do my civic duty yesterday. I know, voting in the primaries might seem pointless now, but I want to keep up the voting habit. Plus, there was a local referendum on the ballot.
Without getting too political, I just want to make sure my vote counts. Living in Florida, and having voted for Nader in 2000, I bear a heavy burden of guilt. Now, I’m all about making sure I cast my vote responsibly . . . and seeing that my vote is counted. I, like most Americans, believe in Freedom and want to take advantage of my Right as a Citizen™ to participate in the election of our Government™ officials. It’s important to support democracy and not make a mockery of the sacred process of casting ballots. So, that’s why I voted . . . for Howard Dean.
