i voted today

Filed under: perfect strangers — notsojenny @ 12:29 pm

but my sticker just says “VOTED 2008 Presidential Election” which kinda sucks because i always prefer the big (backwards for us lefties) check mark sticker.

and i didn’t vote for who you told me to.

my vote cannot be swayed by MTV or FB. 

my vote cannot be bought with infomercials/airtime.

my vote is not because of what the 42 oversize postcards that came in my mail said.

my vote is based on my life experiences, my past and my future. 

my vote is for realistic, not idealistic.

i voted for who scares me less.

i voted today. 

and my vote counts (at least i hope so because they plugged a new computer in and called me over to it telling me to vote there, i really hope it was plugged in correctly).

i know that realistically my vote doesn’t actually count for anything and i just have to hope that the electoral college and i share some of the same views.

  

  

~ today i learned…on a Canadian two dollar bill, the flag flying over the Parliament Building is an American flag (i love my country! apparently everyone else does too!) ~

  1. Nicely said. And go you! All the hype and media hogwash notwithstanding, this is a pretty awesome day to be an American.

    I’m still bitter my absentee vote didn’t come with a sticker.

  2. I voted absentee in NH three weeks ago, and also did not get an “I voted” sticker. I was jealous of the people in the office elevator with them. I’m not part of the cool kids club :(

  3. We haven’t had a $2 bill since 1996- we have a coin instead- a “toonie”. :)
