Why you should vote today

And we wonder why and how American politics got so polarized.

I'm not for either party. They've become WAY too... everything for me.

I'm hoping HTML works here, but this comic pretty much summarizes how I feel about our government today.

Eh, Prof. I'm not sure about this one. Sure, it's funny. But wildly irreverent in regards to some still very sore spots in the American mind. Now, I'm not saying that I don't approve of the proverbial roasting of political figures, but I feel a bit hesitant to applaud macabre images set to the tune of George Michael (it was George Michael, correct?).

I thought it was fabulous. On point. George Michael is a perfect soundtrack. Especially considering that 7 out of 8 states with an Anti-Gay ballot measure passed it.

Hooray! The Dems have both houses!!!

Thank you for that. Although I didn't see it before I voted, it was wonderful.

Hear, hear!!! (Horrible music, however. I'd suggest CCR "Fortunate Son," Springsteen "Born in the USA," of the Stones, "Sympathy for the Devil.") I'm very sad that Harold Ford didn't make it in Tennessee. Of all the Senate seats that had a realistic chance of changing hands, I was pulling hardest for him.

The election was a perfect manifestation of Lord Acton's maxim that "Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely."

Love this piece and George Michael is a perfect choice. Sent it to all our adult kids before the election, and ordered them to send it on to all their friends. And yes, all 6 of us went into the voting booths and helped vote the Republicans out of power.

It was the first time I felt like my vote actually counted since I cast my first one in 1970.

Except for the Rick Perry thing.

A german politican said years ago:
I doesn´t matter if gore or ... (don´t know the name of the other guy) will be the president of the united states, Alan Grennspan is still the chairman of the FED. Maybay there the freedom is trapped.
