Halloween Prank?

I wonder what it says about my mental state that one of the first things I though of while watching This News
on Channel 11 tonight was, "is this a ruse to cause more people to vote for the incumbents, rather than the devil they don't know next Tuesday?"

Probably nothing good, huh? Ha! Welcome to my brain.

The better half and I did go and cast our ballots in Early Voting yesterday. With the touch screen electronic voting machines I always have some suspicion over whether or not my votes will be counted correctly. I have no hard copy to prove one way or the other, so who knows? Guess it depends on whether your guy won or not.

With all of the good candidates out there this year it galled my ass a little bit to have to hold my nose and vote for the lessor of two evils for governor and senator. I could have voted for the liberitarian candidates, which I did in every other race for which they were and option. Not so much for the liberitarian point of view in all cases as much as I wanted to send a message that politic as usual is not really what I'm looking for. Sadly I considered those two races too important to register my disgust as I really wanted too. A choice between crooks is not how it's supposed to be.

A fiscal conservative with experience in running a profitable company through hard times and good, with a sense of Honor and a determination to uphold his oath to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States as originally written is not too much to ask for, is it?

A boy can dream I guess.

It comes down to the wire. Last chance to vote is next Tuesday, An awful lot of truly evil and venial politicians need to be sent packing at all levels of government. If you haven't voted, get out there Tuesday and exercise your franchise. It's what marks you as a Citizen, and despite what the Nanny State politicians want you to think, Citizens are the bosses. Office holders need to be reminded of that fact loudly and often, lest in the final recourse we have to follow Jefferson's idea of fertilizing the Tree of Liberty with the blood of tyrants, and patriots, and it is sad to think that so many patriots would have to spill their vital fluids to cause so few tyrants to have their "Come to Jesus" moment.

Go Vote. Vote early...Vote Often.

It's been done before.

Ya'll come back now.
