Today is a day that relatively few people in the history of humankind have had — the opportunity to choose, if indirectly, their own leaders.Â Â We all have the Founding Fathers of the USA to thank for this day and for spreading the idea of liberty and freedom across the globe.
I cast my vote for John McCain and Sarah Palin about a week ago in North Carolina’s early voting.Â I think I made it clear during the past year that I am no fan of John McCain.Â I wasn’t voting FOR McCain so much as voting HEARTILY AGAINST Obama.Â The last time I had to choose the “lesser of two evils” (1996) — I chose wrong.Â I could not make that mistake twice.
To those of you who haven’t voted yet today — do not let anything get in your way.Â Not the weather, not an obnoxious and loud Obama supporter who threatens you, not an old poll worker who doesn’t know what year it is.Â NOTHING.Â Â Your vote is sacred.Â Treat it as such and make sure others know you are.
I fear for our nation like no other period in my lifetime.Â I’ve always been proud of my country, but never before feared the mere existence of it.Â I do today.Â I hope the American people have looked into the eyes of an empty suit being manipulated from the shadows and realize that John McCain is the right choice for this time.
God Bless America.
