SC Primary

It’s a cold rainy day in SC, and the polls are open. If you care at all about the future of this great country, grab your umbrella and head out to cast your vote. That way, at least you’ll know you had a say, and that kind of gives you the right to whine and complain later if things (policies, high taxes, immigration laws, etc.) aren’t to your liking.

And yes, I’ve already been. Elizabeth and I are heading out for Rincon, GA in a few minutes to celebrate Brooke’s third birthday, and I’m proudly wearing my little “I Voted” sticker to remind everyone we see in the Cracker Barrel, the rest areas, and the BP stations to get out and make a difference.

Despite our many problems, this is still the best country on Earth. Do you part to make sure it stays that way…starting today in the SC Primary.

  1. No matter when your primary is, it’s nice to read of other Americans who are exercising their constitutional right…and responsibility. Yesterday I was listening to NPR and caught the end of a newcast about Cuba’s upcoming election. Although people are free to vote, there’s only one party and one candidate. It’s great to live in a free country and to have choices.

  2. Thanks for your example; I plan to also be there bright and early when it is time for my fellow Georgians and I to vote! I don’t want to stand idly by and let someone else pick our future president, while I do nothing. I am grateful for the opportunity to live in this country and to have the freedom we do! I will also make sure to wear my sticker proudly, better yet, I will make sure to take my cuties along to teach them the importance of voting.

  3. I voted! We went as a family and took the children. I think its important to let them participate! Hunter told everyone he “boated” and he picked the right person! He’s too funny!

  4. I’m so proud of you two young women! You really “get it” and fully realize the great fortune we have to live in this land this is choice above all others. Sure, we have our multitude of challenges, but is there anywhere we’d want to live? Oh, and the taking your kids to the polls…I love it! It’s so important to give them the opportunity to see their parents “boat.”
