Today is Election Day in 'Merica.

Save the kittens
This day is important to me because women didn't have the right to vote until 1920 (that's just 92 years ago, kids). I don't want to let down those women who worked so hard so women generations later could let their voices be heard and to have their opinion count. Also, it is our right (and privilege). Today people are being told to go out and vote, but I feel like this needs to be expanded to "vote responsibly."

By this I mean that everyone who casts a vote should have done some research into why they are voting how they are. Are you voting Republican or Democrat simply because that's how your parents vote or because that person supports (or doesn't support) the issues you are most passionate about?

I'm not going to get into my beliefs at the moment or tell who I'm voting for... because it's personal and private. I just get tired of people who go with the crowd (who ever their crowd is) and have no independent thought. So if you're registered and able to vote in this election, please think critically about what choices you make because your vote is important!

That is all.

  1. I VOTED RESPONSIBLY!! I wish I would have been able to receive my much deserved sticker!! :( I too cannot stand it when people do not THINK when they vote. Just going with the crowd is so irresponsible and just plain stupid!! Research both candidates...go through what their issues are and DECIDE what issues are important to YOU...decide for YOURSELF who the best choice is and VOTE!! Luckily, the majority of Americans did vote responsibly! :)
