I love to vote.
I love the idea that this motley crew of hurricane addled and impatient Brooklyners will all come together today to cast their ballots for the the man who lead our country.
Sure there's a lot wrong these days. The pervasive and cynical influence of political ads is certainly one of them. The lack of any kind of reasonable discussion of issues is another.
There are days to be sure when a return to the monarchy sounds damn good, particularly since I'd like to be Queen of the Known Universe.
There are days when a benevolent dictator sounds just fine..as long as it's ME.
But mostly this muddled thing we call democracy is just fine with me.
I hope you'll go exercise your right to vote.
Vote because your kid should see you do it.
Vote because noble men and women took up arms to make and keep this country free.
Vote because you love America.
