Votination

I done it.

Went to my local polling place (an elementary school not a block away from my apartment) and did my thing.

Indicating what I thought was the least offensive of a bad lot, I marked the little spot for Huckabee (the only one that seems to have stayed on track, the way I see it).

Having been to places where 'voting' consisted of Joe Citizen being allowed to see the ballot boxes the HMFIC was stuffing, or 'freedom' meant getting to choose between saying "Yes, Sir!" or "Right away, Sir!" when told to do something by the powers-that-be, I figured it was an obligation on my part to do the whole Democracy thing.

Anyone not thinking that our form of government is one of the better ideas to pop into a Human Beans' head is cordially invited to live for a while in someplace like China, North Korea, Iran, Kenya, or someplace similar. Anyone not willing to exert the effort to pay attention to -- and be involved in -- the political process is going to end up with exactly the kind of government they deserve. I just wish such assclowns weren't taking all the rest of us down with them...
