Thank God it's Election Day...
The constant barrage of door-to-door campaign volunteers, automated phone calls, and mailings will finally stop.
If there's one thing I'm sick of this election cycle, it's the fact that voting is being extolled as some kind of virtue. Here's one annoying example, complete with snarky comments added after the fact:
Volunteering your efforts to a worthwhile charity? That's important. Or maybe spending time with your family. Heck, even blowing a few hundred bucks on a night out in Vegas does a lot for the economy.
Voting for president is sorta like hiring an employee, except that there's only two applicants, you're forced to take one of them, and whichever one you pick is going to spend your money like a drunken sailor and tell you what you can and can't do.
There's a certain resignation to the whole affair that younger voters probably won't feel as they step inside the polling booth. They'll learn.
