Election Day 2010
Well, I voted today at my local library just a couple of blocks from my home. That is the nice thing about old neighborhoods, you can just walk up to the corner and just about everything you need is right there. Those of you who read my blog know that I am an advocate for a level playing field. I have nothing against corporations wanting to grow their earnings, but I think they should play by the rules. I also think that, while they can try to change the rules to give themselves an edge, it is our responsibility as individuals to try and maintain the level playing field. Voting is the one thing we as individuals have to counter the lobbying of large corporations that want the rules bent in their favor. While I don't like it when corporations place corporate welfare before the general welfare of all the people, I know that it goes on and I accept it. But, voting is our right to try and change that which we feel needs to be changed. We all have our own ideas what those changes should be. My idea of change is to move towards a more level playing field where individuals are not sacrificed at the altar of corporate greed. I hope you all will take your responsibility to vote seriously and VOTE DEMOCRAT!!!
