A "good enough" mom muses about alpha moms, adoption, computers, the State Of The World, Internet quirkiness, and the Kosmik All
Take reponsibility

Just vote.  Go and do it already.  Don't waffle.  It's your bloody duty as a U.S. citizen.

I don't care if you vote Republican or Democratic or Green Party or None of the Above.  If you're a U.S. citizen, you have a ton of rights, and one major responsibility (well, plus jury duty, but that's a rant for a different day). 

Also, don't whinge about the results if you don't vote.  If you do vote, you get a "OmegaMom says I can complain" bumper sticker.

    Already done! What saddens me is the number of local elections that have only one party represented on the ballot. If I weren't looking to move away from here, I'd have to run for something next year.

    I'm pinging with anticipation and hopefulness at today's outcome. My vote counted; I can feel it.

    Not a complaint, I'm genuinely curious: Why did you say 'whinge' instead of 'whine'? I realize it's a British/Australian expression, but I've been seeing it more and more frequently, and it seems to be becoming something of a web-phenomenon.

    Miss C.--We, too, had a lot of local races with only one party/one person running.

    Renee--It was kind of cool. Guess my tinfoil hattiness was totally unwarranted. Though there are some real tinfoil hat folks who are claiming that this was a way to dump the blame on Dems for a lot of stuff, then come roaring back in 2008.

    PAGent--"Whinge". I am on some boards with English/Canadian types, and they use it regularly. I like it because it sounds so silly. I also like using it now and then so I'm not constantly whining about the constant whining in the household. :D (Though the constant whining is lowering to a simmer. Yay!)
