Another Good First Tuesday in November.


Even though I disapprove of our current administration, I still love being an American…and on the first Tuesday after the first Monday in November, I love being an American even more. Voting is very important to me.

Voting not only let’s me voice my opinion about the future direction of the government officially, it also gives me the right to then complain. Does one vote make a difference? Of course. Most of us have seen close elections in the decade and yesterday was no different (at least in IL).

Not everyone I voted for won, but none the less, I am happy I went out and voted. I have no time or patience for people who did not vote. For you…I give you the status quo. You are obviously happy with how things are now and really do not care about anything in the future. Good for you. You are one of the major reasons change is so hard in our country.

If more people cared, stood up, voted, voiced their opinion, things would change. End of rant. For me, yesterday was a great day and I look forward to next year.
