Damn straight.

While waiting in line to vote today, I managed two 7 year olds and a conference call for work.

Then I took a deep breath, said a prayer, and voted.

After voting, I fed lunch to the two 7 year olds, listened in on a conference call and received another 7 year old from her mother.

Later today I will take my girls to a religious education class, exercising my freedom of choice to choose my own religion.

I'm just struck today by how many rights I have in my everyday life - the right to get married, choose where to live, how to worship, whether to work outside the home.  Especially the right to vote.  It's simply amazing to me that we have a peaceful transfer of power every 4 years.

Did I vote ?  Damn straight I did.

Amen sister! Bravo for going to the polls with both girls and working - you're proof there is no excuse not to vote!

I have often talked to people about how amazing it is that, even when our candidate loses, we accept the results and move on. There weren't even mass riots in 2004. Of course, it's good that we can have this transfer of power without a war but sometimes I wonder where is the outrage?
