One of the penalties for refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors. -- Plato

Mid-Term Madness

If you are unaware of the mid-term Congressional elections taking place tomorrow you must be living under a rock. Republicans are in grave danger of loosing control of both the House and Senate. While I'm excited for the Democrats to regain control of Congress I'm also excited for this election to be over. This election season has been dirtier than ever. A majority of the commercials on the air the last few weeks are negative campaign ads. My phone has been ringing off the hook with pre-recorded messages from candidates and those stumping for them. We've even been getting campaign calls at the Starbucks I work at. When is enough enough?

The bottom line is you need to vote. Don't let the negativity of the candidates and parties turn you off. The only way to have your voice heard is to vote!
