A Voting Alert

Today is a good day to read up on various propositions (and candidates) we will be asked to vote aye or nay on next Tuesday.

Sunday is traditionally a day of rest thus a hour devoted to political research is a lot more possible than from 9 to 5 weekdays or during Saturday errands (also a long-standing American tradition.)

Especially if, in the past, you have shrugged and said, "I don't have any idea what they're talking about so I'm not going to bother to vote."

I don't think that this is or would be much of an excuse to all of the families who have lost loved ones in America's numerous wars to insure our freedom and most especially our right to vote.

I feel very strongly that if you do not go vote, you absolutely do NOT get to carp and complain about any of the measures that were passed or the men and women who were elected.

Put your money where your mouth resides or lose the post-election whine until the next one.  Sorry, you're not allowed regrets if you didn't vote.  And, I might add, we know who many of you are and will not hesitate to tax you with this thought:   No Vote, No Whine
