“Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want, and deserve to get it good and hard.” ~ H. L. Mencken
Happy Election Day, friends! I hope you all exercised your right to vote. I’ve heard so many people say they weren’t voting because they are not happy with the choices; that it’s a ritual of picking the lesser of two evils. Perhaps they believe a message is being sent by not voting. The only message I am receiving is that they don’t care about the future of the country.
In honor of the day I want to share my antique collection of campaign buttons that I discovered while treasure hunting.
I’ll be adding another one to it tonight.
There are some interesting items in the news tonight:
- The “new civility” in politics reigns.
- Note the election day artwork here, here, and here. It’s a good thing campaigning in a polling place is illegal.
I hope you voted like your future depended on it, because it does.
