November 7, 2006 Election Day

If the people fail to vote, a government will be developed which is not their government... The whole system of American Government rests on the ballot box. Unless citizens perform their duties there, such a system of government is doomed to failure.

-President Calvin Coolidge

He was nicknamed "Silent Cal," but his words here speak eloquently to the importance and to the duty of exercising our precious right to vote and to be heard.

"Early voting" has been heavy.

If you didn't vote early and decided to wait until Election Day, this is it.

Please vote--rain or shine!

After the election on tues. I have come to the conclusion not everyone should be allowed to vote. May I point out voting is not a right it is a responsibility and people need to educate themselves.

I believe that voting is both a right (where one meets age, residency, and all other qualifications) AND a responsibility.

I would agree that people should educate themselves about the issues and the candidates before voting.
