Hello My beautiful people,
Fall is here, the air is crisp, the leaves are vibrant with color and the sun is dipping out on us earlier everyday. Fall is a time of change and we are on the dawn of one of the most historic changes in US History.
One Hundred forty-three years after slavery was abolished, 88 years since women were granted the right to vote and 44 years since the civil rights movement tomorrow evening may see Barack Obama become the 44th President (44 years since the civil rights movement/ 44th President...) .... It is truly electric, butterflies in the stomach, can't stand it excitement...
I'm not about to go over the campaign for either side... You already know the issues, you know the people, you know that it is crunch time and for the last few weeks it had gotten ugly (on both sides), you know the economy went to (well you know) AND that is has been over 2000 days since we "won" in Iraq but that there is no end in sight... You've heard the rhetoric over and over and over and over again... I am not here to reiterate any of that to you today I am hear simply to tell you a few things you need to know for tomorrow
1- Time.com had a great article in 2004 that explained the electoral college http://www.time.com/time/election2004/article/0,18471,749496,00.html as you may remember in 2000 Bush won the electoral college vote while the popular vote (the people went to Gore) THIS DOES NOT MEAN YOUR VOTE DOES NOT COUNT IF YOU DON'T VOTE YOUR CANDIDATE WILL NOT WIN PERIOD!!!
2- There is a lot of misinformation going around that should be addressed
2a. YOUR LAST DAY TO VOTE IS NOVEMBER 4TH YOU CANNOT VOTE AFTER
2b. You cannot wear candidate paraphernaila (hats, buttons, shirts etc.) within 100 yards of a polling sight (it is considered campaigning which is prohibited) You must take it off to vote and they cannot send you home and tell you that you cannot vote at all
2c. If you feel your right to vote is being violated please call 1-866-687-8683. It's a legit number. I dialed it myself.
3- for a good anaysis of where the election stands read http://www.newsweek.com/id/167186
4- IT WILL RAIN IN SOMEPLACES, LINES WILL BE LONG DO NOT LET THAT KEEP YOU FROM VOTING IF YOU DON'T VOTE YOUR CANDIDATE WILL NOT WIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I will keep you updated throughout the day tomorrow VOTE VOTE VOTE VOTE VOTE!!!
