Getting a bit personal in advance of election day. I recall an uncle complaining he had jury duty when I was a teenager. I got in his face and said it is what you need to do as an American, even though he had already served in the military. He got out of it somehow. He is now dead, but the story sticks in my craw. I have had jury duty twice now and while it is no fun, it is my duty. In the end, God will judge us all.
Tomorrow being election day it is not only my duty to vote, but my privilege for the first time to work the election polls as an Associate Judge. I will swear to uphold the integrity of everyone’s vote. Our state pays me to do this, which I personally find abominable, and will probably end up donating the roughly $100.
I would work the polls for for free. I am blessed to live in the land of the free and the home of the brave. It is the least I can do for my country, state and neighbors. Republican, Democrat , Independent, Christian, Jew, Muslim or whatever- on election day, and what should be every day, we are Americans.
BTW, our ballots are all in the English language!
While our soldiers fight for democracy in Iraq and Afghanistan to protect what the Obama Administration calls “The Homeland,” I still call it The United States of America. For all the U.S.A. stands for, this election day I will serve my country by sitting in a hard metal chair for more than 13 hours to ensure the integrity and privilege the public to vote. I will then escort the sealed ballots to their destination for counting, go home, greet my family to explain to the little ones why I wasn’t home for dinner and watch the election returns on Fox.
The least you can do is VOTE.
