Thanks for all the great comments on my political post. For the record, that post started much more fired up, but I let it sit for a few days, massaged it a bit, and this is the result. I think it really helped to get my brain around the reasons I vote the way I do to write it all down. I would encourage anyone to take the time to do the same. Even if you don't post it on your blog... just know why you vote the way you do. We are so privlidged with the right to vote. Let's not take it for granted. Be educated.
