Vote for That One



On Monday I walked from work to campus on my lunch break to visit the library and try to catch a few professors (no such luck) but I was wonderfully surprised to see at least a dozen different people registering voters on campus. I gleefully told different volunteers that I had already registered after being asked and I've never felt better about blowing off a street hawker. Monday was the last day to register to vote in the state of Pennsylvania and it's an important state in the election. Polls show that Obama has a comfortable lead, but I certainly hope that Obama supporters won't see us as a foregone conclusion.

On a different note, no matter whom you support, please vote. Let's revel in our democratic freedom!

ps--Last night's debate was terribly boring.

I'm sorry you don't feel like voting, thisisbunk. If you're eligible to vote, I sure do wish you would. If you're a fan of Ron Paul, why not vote for a third party candidate? I know that Paul aligns himself with the GOP, but he's got a more libertarian ideology and Republican and it's a grand notion that we could, someday, move away from a limited two-party system. Don't be disheartened!

what does voting accomplish?

also, how can we move away from a two party system when people keep voting for the two parties?
