Well, that’s what the little sticker they gave me said. I just got home after casting my votes on the first day of early voting. Now I won’t feel any guilt when I hang up on recorded campaign calls ‘cuz the die is cast – I can’t change any of my votes. In truth, I always hang up on them anyway. Is it rude to hang up on a recording? 😕
Except for a few off-year elections which had only a few local races I wasn’t interested in, I have been faithfully doing my civic duty ever since 1960 – and I can honestly say that my one vote has never had the slightest significance. If I had never voted at all there is not one election which would have had a different outcome. The only positive things I have derived from voting all these years, other than pride in living in a country which has fair elections with results always accepted, are (1) the satisfaction when a person I have voted for turns out to have been worthy of my vote, and (2) that wonderful feeling when I can honestly state that I am not responsible for people I didn’t vote for who perform poorly or dishonor their office.
I hereby announce to the entire world that I am in no way responsible for George W. Bush. So don’t blame me ❗
