Election day...

Today we Americans get to show our faith in the United States system of government by participating in it. Yes, it sucks to have to choose between poop soup and a poop sandwich, but we are lucky in that our system allows for change of leadership without bloodshed. Most places in the world are not as lucky.

Do your civic duty today and go vote. I don't care who for, but take the time to learn where your guy stands on the issues that matter to you... don't let SNL's latest skit or the Daily Show decide for you. Make your own informed choice.

If you're too young to vote, make sure those around you of voting age get out and vote. Guilt them if you have to... but get an opinion on who should win and share it with them.

So those of us with no "faith" in the U.S. system of government are exempt? Sweet.

I have voted for Paullus as any noble Roman would do. Continuing in the traditions of Lucius Aemilius Paullus the conqueror of Macedon, and Paullus Fabius Maximus the personal friend of Augustus, I voted today for Ron Paul. The Democratic candidate is too socialist, and the Republican not conservative enough [McCain-Feingold, anyone!!??]

And Nader has lost at the polls more times than Quintus Fulvius Flaccus -- and Quintus Flaccus had to have his mother murder his stepfather the consul so her son could be elected to take his place.

In the meantime can anybody tell those socialistic donkeys that capitalism is what got us our world primacy??
