Not Gonna Do It…

Posted on the 07 November 2012 by Drowqueen @theburnedhand

I have not posted about the election on my Facebook page.  I would rather post funny photos, quotes, or things about voting for Odin.  Yes, I know who I am going to vote for…I’ve known all along.  Don’t get me wrong, I have a few friends who can actually post things and sound intelligent; however, there are far more “friends” posting insulting comments and if you think it’s going to end tonight, you are wrong.  I hope you voted so at least you can say it was or wasn’t your fault.  If you didn’t, please don’t open your mouth.

In my “No” column for November, I am putting talking about politics on Facebook.  I have a friend who is really informed, and he is the only exception I will make to this rule.  Other than that, I see people posting things they have heard, or making horribly biased comments that make me click the “hide” button.  So glad that was invented.  Sigh.

No matter what I say, tomorrow is a new day.  I voted, and hope for the best.  If the result is not what I expected, I am going to do what I always do.  Move forward.  I hope you do too.

“Always vote for principle, though you may vote alone, and you may cherish the sweetest reflection that your vote is never lost.”  ~John Quincy Adams
