     Well, we are down to the wire, we the people get to exercise our franchise in less than 24 hours when we go into the voting booth and participate in the only poll that really counts. Maybe now we can get some peace from the incessant telephone polling. I have never been a big fan of polls. Polling results are affected by so many things such as, what is asked, how is it asked, who is asked, how many people are asked, and so forth. 
     Anyone who has been listening, probably feels the need to take a long shower to wash off to nasty mud that has been slung in copious amounts during this election cycle. I long for a time when candidates argue issues intelligently and reject ad hominem attacks. Dare to dream!
     A lot of people have spent tons of money telling you how you should vote. Let me suggest how you should vote. I don't care if you vote republican, democrat, independent, fringe party or whatever. I strongly urge you to vote for: (1) The person who will TRULY support, defend and uphold the U.S. Constitution; (2) The person who will vote against ANY piece of legislation that reduces, diminishes, weakens, or violates any of our God-given rights or liberties. (3) The person who has demonstrated their ability to perform the job by virtue of their past training, experience and accomplishments; The person who will truly represent the interests of their constituents.
     All wisdom does not reside in any one party or candidate, therefore, our elected representatives must of necessity work together to do what is best for our Nation regardless who gets the credit. 

     Read up on what your current representatives have done while in office. If they have done a good job, vote for them. If that have not done a good job or otherwise have violated the public trust, vote them out.

     In any event, please go to the polls tomorrow and vote. It is our duty as citizens to keep ourselves informed and to exercise our vote. GOD BLESS AMERICA! ! !


  1. Well said, Gerry.
    I'll take your eloquent statements one step further: If you don't bother to vote, don't complain.

  2. SPW...I can see that you follow my blog from your profile. I can't find your avatar on my followers list tho. Have you changed your avatar?

    It is so much easier to return to anothers blog by clicking on their avatar...that's why I ask.
