Go Vote!

What are you doing reading this blog? Go vote! I'll wait.

If you can't decide who to vote for, or you are mad at the two political parties, might I suggest voting for a third-party candidate? In a sense, your vote gets "wasted" because your person is not going to win. However, it can also send a signal to the parties that you are unhappy with the slate you have been given.

This year, I am going to vote for a third party candidate in a race in which the incumbent is so well entrenched that we have no real choice. I want to send up my little flag saying "hey, could we get a real election over here!"

In our senate race (which is so hotly contested) I am going to vote for one of the big dogs. Why? Because I think this will be a close one, and I want to see the guy I'm supporting win. So, even though all the negative ads disgust me, I feel like it is my civic duty to vote for the one I agree with more strongly. Of course, in this particular race, there aren't as many policy differences between the candidates. But, I'll take what I can get.

I've got another post on Ted Haggard brewing, but for now--GO VOTE!
