It's Now Or Never

Tomorrow is election day, in case you didn't know that. I'm sure it almost totally slipped your mind, what with none of the news channels, papers, websites and blogs covering it non-stop for the past month, so it's a good thing I reminded you. You're welcome, I'm sure.

Now, I'm not a political person. Reading a copy of Assembling Your Carburetor For Dummies would be easier and more fun for my brains to absorb than it is to get into politico mumbo jumbo, so based on that I'm not going to talk about who I'm voting for or why you shouldn't vote for the other guy. We're all screwed no matter who's in office anyway, which is why I will never be a political zealot for any candidate. No matter what is being said or promised, there are some things that we seem to forget are a constant: we will always pay taxes and they will rise, the price of gas, electricity, heating costs, groceries and well everything will continue to rise and our troops will be in Afghanistan until 2012 and no current leader can do anything drastic about it. Sorry peeps, this is just how it is. If you think I'm crazy, well I say to you: "quite possibly" and we'll talk in a year and see where our new leader stands. Grim? Maybe. You call it "pessimism", I call it "realism". So put THAT in your pipe and smoke it.

That being said, I most certainly will go out and vote for who I think is the lesser of 2 evils. I most certainly will wear some sort of cheesy red, white and blue ensemble and wear my retarded little "I Voted!" pin all day. Let's not forget through all this "I'm right, you're wrong!" crap, we still have a pretty kickass country. While it may not be perfect, what country IS? We have more freedoms than most to do almost whatever the hell we want to. If I want to hang a Rebel flag next to a Black Panthers banner from my front porch, I can. Confusing as hell, yes, but the point is that I can.


And most of all, let's remember that while a leader can make certain aspects of life annoying, in the grand scheme of things we are in charge of our happinesses, we are in charge of downfalls. You have every power to determine what kind of life you want to live.

If that's not enough, then how about this: Starbucks is giving away free coffee all day if you go in and tell 'em you voted. Only in America, bitches.

Now go vote your faces off and shut the hell up about it already!

  1. No politician is perfect, Ill agree. The one (IMHO) who had a chance at that was silenced even before he made it to office.

    Tomorrow is, I truly believe the single most important election I will vote in to date because I now have an amazingly wonderful, talented, beautiful little girl who is so full of hope and she is not even 6 yet.

    damn right Ill vote tomorrow because

    YES I CAN!!!
