November 2, 2010 is finally here. For almost two years I have anxiously awaited sending my message of anger to the hardcore statists, the out of touch elites and the RINO party hacks. This morning, at just a little before 10:00 am, I walked over my polling place (with a nasty backache and late for an appointment too) to do just that.
I could tell this wasn’t your typical midterm election. For starters there were five people ahead of me. They were two housewives with strollers and three were very, very, very, old people. These are the kind of folks I am use to seeing on the big elections, not the midterms. Usually during midterm elections, I see the same folks that turn out for the primaries.
Despite my anecdotal evidence, you should make sure you vote. Don’t let polls telling you your candidate will lose or win big stop you from adding your voice to the mix. A few more votes might make the difference from a blow out into a respectable loss or might make a big win into a devastating landslide. Either way, don’t sit back and let the action pass you by. Even better, find a friend and get them to the polls as well.
