If you have voted today, you have experienced a unique and priceless pleasure:
- You belong to a group of U.S. citizens who treasure and exercise their freedom
- You have met an achievable challenge by registering to vote, finding your polling place, and informing yourself about your choices.
- You have owned something of value. If countless fellow citizens gave up their very lives so that we can do this, we must honor their sacrifice by doing it.
- Voting is the ultimate expression of autonomy. Your vote is yours and yours alone.
- After you vote, you get a sticker…a small dose of sensual pleasure. My precinct used paper ballots this time, and I did enjoy filling in the boxes…seemed to feel a bit more like a “real” vote.
- This evening’s results may bring surprise and perhaps even some humor.…stay tuned for election results.
