I love the fact that my parents think they can influence my vote. Or.. even better, make me feel as if my vote counts for nothing. We live in a society that is so “two party” based that anything outside of that is not accepted. Who did I vote for? My “wasted” vote went to Ron Paul. I understand that my vote will not be counted. Does that really matter to me? Not really. I am happy that I voted for my conscience. I think both Obama and McCain are corrupt politicians. I don’t go with the “lesser of two evil’s” theory. Sorry guys, that’s just not me. So, my vote was a “protest” vote. No big. I’d rather it not count than give it to old man McCain or Mr. Change.
My mom told me that my wasted vote was a vote for Obama since it wasn’t for McCain. I suppose if she was an Obama fan it would have been a vote for McCain? HA! Either way, I’m happy! If you don’t know about Ron Paul watch this.. he was on TV a few nights ago.
Ok, I’ll admit it. I totally have a political crush on Ron Paul.
