No matter how things turn out, this election will be of historic importance.  You can’t sit it out.  Do so and, in my mind, you lose your right to complain about anything that your government does or doesn’t do until the next election.   Lots of people have given up everything so we have the ability to express our preferences freely.  Not to do so demeans those sacrifices.

So vote.  Then celebrate that the hysteria, the phone calls, the awful ads and the personal attacks will stop for a week or so until the next cycle begins.  Sure democracy is messy but it’s the best we’ve got until someone figures out a better way.

Go ahead – I’ll wait right here!
