Early on my parents impressed upon me the importance of voting, of making a choice, taking a stand, adopting a position. I went into the voting booth with my stay-at-home mother every election day, and watched as she made her choices...I wasn't allowed to pull the levers, but I could come in and watch the process.
And so I impress upon my small readership the importance and necessity of voting. I know who I would encourage you to vote for, but it's sooo important to be part of the process.
IF YOU DON'T VOTE, YOU FORFEIT THE RIGHT TO COMPLAIN UNTIL THE NEXT ELECTION!!
And many many bonus points to anyone who can tell me what a lanavat is.
