sub specie aeternitatis

It’s my turn

November 2, 2004

After months of speeches, promises, controversies, and incredible amounts of spinning, it’s finally my turn to have a say in things. Candidates spoke of their own greatness, news personalities and bloggers spoke of the wonders of their personal favorite. Millions upon millions of dollars were spent in the attempt to influence and convince voters nationwide. Money was poured into predicting the outcome for today. But after all the hype, all the shouting, all the name calling, all the talk of better or worse things to come, I get to make up my own damn mind. It’s just me and a handful of choices. The only person who gets to make that decision is myself. And that feels really good. Don’t let anyone else make that decision for you: get out and vote.
