Digging Out My Soapbox

Well its official, politics are all anyone can talk about these days. It even inspired my friend Shawn to post THREE TIMES in the last few days which I'm pretty sure ties the number of posts he's written year to date.* And as much as I don't talk politics with family or friends I am happy when I hear random women debating finer points of policy while waiting in line at Starbucks.

So in along those lines, I thought I'd share something with you that normally I wouldn't. Because I haven't been able to stop thinking about it all morning. I don't know if any of you out there are as huge Post Secret fans as I am... What can I say I am just totally addicted to that site! It is the highlight of my Monday morning to check in and see the new week's posts. But today I saw something that scared the shit out of me.

Really? It frightens the hell out of me that there are people out there that take voting so lightly. Because for the record if this secret was in reverse and the voter was basing their decision on a liberal boyfriend's actions I'd be just as outraged. What the HELL people?

Vote because you care about the war. Vote because you care about human rights. Vote because you care what is happening in the financial markets. Vote because you CARE. Vote because you CAN. Please don't take this right for granted. Apathy will get you nowhere. It's your country, educate yourself and make a stand.

*Just some good natured teasing - keep it up my friend. :D

You made me laugh with that poke about my posting! :D

I haven't looked at that site in a long time, actually had forgotten all about it. It is interesting to see what people will put up there...

"Vote because you CARE." That sums things up pretty nicely! ;)
