More Annoyed than Amused

Voting!

Posted by parsingtime on October 20, 2008

I couldn’t help but smile when I passed by the library today and saw cars waiting in line on the road to get into the library parking lot to vote early. It was similar to the lines I saw during the gas shortage but much more heart warming.  I love seeing people vote. I love seeing people excited about elections.

I spent part of my morning looking up some of the local candidates that I get to vote for. There are a lot of libertarians on the NC ballot and I love it. I know they have no chance at winning but maybe ten years or twenty years from now libertarians or green party candidates will have a fighting chance. I love the possibilities. I think having grown up in countries where civil liberties were non-existent makes me more partial to the voting process than the average person.

I really hope NC gives out the I Voted stickers like they do in Texas.  BTW, I haven’t voted yet. I like to wait until a little closer to election day because the waiting to hear who won? Kills me.

So go vote. It’s fun.
