If you're 18 or older, in the US, and you do only one thing today ..


(Unless, of course, you have already voted. Or aren't eligible to vote in the US. In which case, please disregard this directive.)

As a side note, while I would really like to say "And make sure you vote for Obama" (because -- see previous entry -- I really think he's our last, best hope at the moment to turn things around, and I will be devastated if he doesn't win), I feel very strongly that ALL Americans should exercise their right to vote whether they agree with me or not, and whether they're voting for my preferred candidate or not. I know that some of my friends disagree with me, and that's fine. But I feel that this is a fundamental part of our society. It is not just a right, but a duty.

WE determine which direction this country will go through our votes.

Or our LACK of votes.

Think your vote doesn't count? What if there were a million people who thought the same way and they ALL VOTED? Well, guess what? There ARE over a million people who think their vote won't count. If you all voted, what a difference that would make!

But it starts with you.

And your vote.

Please vote today. Vote your conscience. Have a say, even if a small one, in the direction this country will take.
