One Good Reason to Go Out and Vote

And no, it's not for the free cup of hot coffee and cookies that my kids are looking forward to :)

It's the fact that we still have the freedom in America to choose our leaders.

Might not be a candidate for President or governor or whatever other offices you are voting for, that you think is wonderful...or even mediocre. Not a candidate that believes exactly like you on every issue (unless you happen to be running for something). Not a candidate that is ideal.

And if that's the case - just vote for the lesser of two evils. The best of the worst. You still have a choice.

We are awaiting with abated breath about who will be the next president! Do you always get free coffee and cookies when you vote? Doesn't that cost a lot of money? I presume that the gov't pays for it. This does not happen in Canada.

Of course the gov't does NOT pay for the free coffee and cookies. And actually there wasn't any today. I'm thinking it's just at the non-Presidential voting times that they have the snacks...I'm assuming it's something the school provides - where we vote. Guess I could be wrong...

Hey - if you wanted free coffee you could have gone to Starbucks. Can't help you on the cookies, but Krispy Kreme was giving out doUGHnuts (star-shaped). Guess it's too late now though. :-(
