There may be a raging debate at all times as to what is patriotic (paying taxes? burning flags?), but I think we can all agree that voting is about as fundamentally patriotic as it gets. So, hang your chad, pull your lever, punch your button, touch your screen – however your precinct does it.
Otherwise, you have forfeited your right to bitch for the next four years. And I for one will call you on it.
Mr. X and I are fortunate to live in a state that has early voting. We voted on Oct. 25!
I’ve voted in every election since I turned 18, but this was the first time that I felt a visceral thrill voting. I hope that you have the same sense of history, no matter who you vote for.
