I Know it is Boring, But...

It's here! 2008 is here. As a country we have been anticipating this year, well, since 2004.

IT IS ELECTION YEAR.

Oh, don't quit reading now, I promise, I am not writing a post about my favorite candidate or even why I don't think your should vote on your favorite candidate. I know there are many of you out there that will never agree with me on my views and that's OK! What I am going to tell you in this little bloggy of mine is to remember to


GET OUT THERE AND VOTE!


I'm sorry. I know capital letters mean I am yelling and I am. This is very important to me. I promise to not use this blog as a political soapbox. I have lots of family and friends that I love that we will never see eye to eye on the issues or who we think makes a good candidate. And I really don't like to hear their views anyway, so I am keeping this post to one subject. Get registered to vote.

GET OUT THERE AND VOTE!

As a women, we have not had this privilege for very long. There are several classes of people that were able to vote before we could. There are still countries where women are still not allowed a voice in their government.

GET OUT THERE AND VOTE!

Ok, Ok, I know it is only January and the primaries for most states are several months away. But I bring this up now to remind you, if you are not a registered voter, you need to get signed up so you will be able to vote come primary time. You don't get to vote just because you want to, you have to be registered. And yes, your vote does count.


GET OUT THERE AND VOTE!

When you go to vote take your kids and grandkids so they can start learning the process at an early age. We always to Katie with us and to this day, she may forget some things, but she always remembers to go vote.

Can you tell I just love Maxine?!

Well I liked it - will definitely be voting, am already praying. It is fun to go vote and see everyone in their "being a good citizen" hats! Thanks for dropping by my blog - the pictures of your granddaughter are sweet. We also walk by faith - no other name but Jesus!

I agree with everything you said, it so important to vote and to show our kids that it is important too. Thanks for reminding everyone the importance of it. We are especially lucky as women to have that right.
Your cartoon are cute too.

You go girl! And of course, I am part Maxine!
I do take my kids to vote with me. The pole is right there in their library. I get them both a sticker that says "I Voted". And of course it was my rear on the front page voting a few years back.
