Whether you are PROBAMA or NOBAMA, do not expect the other side to stay home during this election.


Today was the first day of early voting in these parts and all I can say is “WOW!”  Today’s turnout was awesome despite a cold rain.  It was so exciting that I went to the polls TWICE today.  Well, actually my first trip went flat when, after standing in line for a half-hour, I discovered that I had forgotten my reading glasses and had to return home to get them.

In all of the years since my first vote, I have never seen such an army of citizens charging to a polling place as I witnessed today; the wealthy, the middle class, and the penury were there in a blend of the young, the old, every skin shade, and every ethnicity you could think of.  Most touching were the folks arriving in wheelchairs or hobbling around with the assistance of canes or walkers.  Today I saw the USA that I have always believed in.  I beheld a multitude of Americans declaring their diverse views with one phrase in a brash voice, “We have skin in this game!”  Today was as all elections should be.  Welcome home, America.  I’ve missed you.  Please stay for a while.
