I remember how I felt 2 years ago on election day and the days after. It was horrible. I felt like the walking dead for days after. But thanks to the TEA party, like minded bloggers and talk radio, I came out of it and found reasons to feel optimistic, with something to look forward to in ’10.
Now the day is here and I feel like this will be the most important vote I’ve ever cast. I won’t be voting until late in the day because I want to vote with my daughter after her work. This will be the 4th time we’ve voted together.
I remember the first time she and I voted together. She was 4 and it was 1984 – back in the days when I was a misguided democrat. I regret that at the time, I didn’t realize what a great man Ronald Regan was and that it took me this many years to figure it out.
Yesterday, my son and I had a long conversation (in text messages) about his vote that will be cast in Las Vegas and how important this election will be to him.
My kids take seriously their responsibility to vote. I’m thankful for that.
Tonight, we celebrate and tomorrow we get to work on ’12 and making this man a one term president!
