PLEASE VOTE

I am not very
POLITICAL
by nature.
I don't stand on
any soapboxes
or street corners,
especially in the
red light district
if you get my drift,
to tell anyone
how to vote.
So,
I only have
two words 
to say today.
God Bless Our Country.
If you DON'T vote-
DON'T complain
about the outcome~

Hi Diana,

My hubby and I voted last week. I just had this feeling that something could happen between then and voting day so that we wouldn't able to vote.

Well it is now 5:02am and I have not slept. This is not unusual for me. But I was sick this AM and I am sick again now and don't know when I will get to sleep. So listening to the promptings you get is a good thing.

I will be watching CNN all evening though to see the results.

Good luck to my candidate. :)LOL

Praying for the right man to be living in the White House for the next four years.

Take care, Janet W

I even made sure to schedule my surgery for AFTER election day! (tomorrow...yuck!)Now that's a dedicated voter! Anyway...good post because I hate it when bloggers put up advertising for their candidate, I'm here to have fun and not see advertisements, I can see those on TV! :)

Ron said...

Done before I came to school. Now, sit back and see the results tonight.

ℳartina @ Northern Nesting said...

Heading over as soon as the kids get out of school, they like to watch the process!

Jettie said...

We early voted so that we wouldn't have to stand in line on election day. May the best thing for the USA win, whichever that may be.

Japolina said...

I'm always amazed when turnout is low. If you don't vote, you have no right to complain for the next four years!

mo said...

The best thing they ever did here in Arizona is giving us the option to use early mail-in ballots.

No lines!

Good advice today Diane.

*hugs*

I always vote so that I can complain loudly if I am not happy. ;-)

Debby said...

Connie said...

If you DON'T vote - DON'T complain
about the outcome~
That says it all . . . I would even say, if your man doesn't win . . . pray for and support the man that does. He is in charge of our country and he needs all the prayers we can give him.

Already did! I will be so glad when it's over. And also relieved not to be getting any more prerecorded phone calls all day long, a bunch of junk in the mail, and no more commercials on tv! Yeah:)

I always vote with my husband and kids. We go as a group. I saw a story about a lady stopping to vote on her way to the hospital IN LABOR! her contractions were five minutes apart. If she can do it everybody can!!

We are able to vote early in Tennessee, so we voted the first day the polls opened in October.

Have a good day, Diana!

Each vote does matter and we're lucky to live in a country where we have that freedom.

Something Nice and Pretty said...

Just voted Diana! Of course it's right across the street at the church...I love that! I've voted every time since I was old enough to vote, wouldn't miss it! You are so right, if you don't vote, don't complain!

Ann from On Sutton Place said...

I voted earlier today. Unlike many, I didn't have to wait in line so I was happy. I'm afraid we may not know who the winner is tonight...I think it may be that close. Being from Ohio, I am ready for it all to be over. The phone calls and people knocking on my door have really started to grate on my nerves. :o)

Little Miss Maggie said...

Here here, Diana. I totally agree. In this house we have a saying. If you don't vote, you don't have a right b**ch. So thank you for your public service announcement.

Sarah said...

Diane, I stood in line for over an hour to vote this morning. It was a beautiful day, I met two delightful young women with their little girls who played quietly by their sides, and saw several friends who live in my neighborhood. I love living in America! ;-)
