Voting day Nov. 7th 2006

I voted today

I feel proud

I did the research

I chose those I most agreed with

Voted against some amendments that I felt were wrong

And for some I thought were just.  

I exercised my right as a citizen of this bright land

To have my voice heard

What little voice I have

 

Did you vote today?

You and I may not agree

But did you vote today?

I didnít ask who you voted for

Or what buttons did you push

I asked the simple question

Did or did you not vote this election day?

 

If you did Iím proud of you

Itís your right and your duty

To stand up and be counted

Even if we voted for completely different things

Both of us can stand tall

For WE voted for what We believe in

 

For those who did not vote this day

For shame, for shame, shame on you

I bet you have an opinion or two

On what is happening in this country

Why would you keep your voice silent?

Why allow others to decide your fate?

 

Now those who voted, if things do not go your way

And the country seems to go the way youíd rather not

You have earned the right to complain

To rail against what our elected officials are doing

But those who kept their voices shut this day

Who did not vote and stayed away

You have no one to blame but your self

You let others choose the path

They took the helm when you folded your hands

If the boat crashes because of them

It was your choice to not be heard.

I donít want to hear your whining

How terrible things are

Just remember this next time 
So raise your voice and Vote!
Author's Notes:
:) I voted! I love the new electronic ballot! I can actually read it with out having to bend over so near it! Sweet. Even if we voted for comepletely different sides.......i still say good for you!
 
For those who didnt vote.......dont complain when things go bad. You didnt vote. Thats your fault. I was late for work so I could vote. So dont tell me you had no time.

I agree with you..I have no patience with people who gripe about government but don't bother to vote.  Maybe Rumsfield can run for dog catcher in his home town now, eh?...:O)...yer pal, len
