RAINY DAY RANTS-- as an adjunct to Rainy Day Thoughts, here go political debates. In all cases, what follows is opinion-- mine.

Be sure you vote Tuesday. It is a privilege that some have given their lives to keep possible. I've heard the argument it doesn't matter. I say if you don't like the choices this election, vote anyway and work for better choices next time. Voting is part of living in a democracy, and I don't buy the arguments from non-voters. To me, it's an unwillingness to be responsible. Considering the price some paid for that, it's enough to make a person cry that they think they can now make a difference by sitting home. Sorry but sitting home satisfies one group and they are the victors in such a choice. Some states have more significant choices than others, like Ohio and Mississippi, but if you are voting for a governor or replacing a legislator who retired, it's critical for you too.
