Our voting power is yours and mine

A thought for today I want to say. When I was young and in my prime, I was diligent with every dime.

Now I am older life passes. I watch politicians fall on their ***. Oh fer, hatches!

I do hope this election there are no dangling chads, crossed out black boxes, blocked road to cast a vote. And, our military citizens votes are counted before the counting’s done. Remember 12 years ago most deployed military votes were not counted. And most of all the Supreme Court is not allowed to vote for us. Imagine six people voting for the American citizens. Was that a crime? I think so.

Our voting power is yours and mine. And when I was young, Big Bird was a B-29. Don’t forget to vote.
