Election Day

Tuesday, November 06, 2012

Today is Election Day and it is so vitally important that every registered voter turn out and vote.  As they say, "if you don't vote then you can't complain."  But what this is really about is excercising a right that has been paid for at great risk and evil peril since the founding of our nation.  Just because so many politicians are "out of touch" does not mean that your vote does not make a difference.
