Well, Tuesday is a big day… ELECTION DAY (no early voting in Pa). I hope all of you are going to exercise your right, as an American, and vote.
I always marvel at this process. The election cycle is messy and loud and tiring… often obnoxious and full of pundits and those annoying last minute robocalls. It lasts w-a-y too long and costs f-a-r too much and it can bring out the most dreadful behavior in people! It is not a perfect system… but it’s our system… the best on earth!
I am always proud and wistful to watch our government work as we vote for a President every four years. I get up election day and thank God I am an American and I can vote! This is not a right to take lightly or to dismiss!
So I’ll be at the poles with coffee in hand, bright and early on Tuesday morning, taking advantage of the freedom I have to make my voice count… and I’ll be up all night watching the results and being so thankful I am an American!!!!
GOD BLESS US… EVERY ONE!
(Please no comments on the candidates or their parties, thank you!)
