I went and voted this morning….there’s my wonderful “I Voted” sticker to prove it. I’m wearing it as my badge of honor today and hopefully to remind those that aren’t normally involved in the democratic process to take part.
My daughter’s high school is used as a polling place. Usually the road leading up to it and the public park where I vote is littered with hundreds of campaign signs for every candidate. I even thought about it yesterday thinking campaign organizers in this area must be very busy out putting all the extra signs close to polling locations.
Today…..hardly a sign. Only two candidates had signs out in force. I saw many Ron Paul signs and several Mike Huckabee signs. There wasn’t a Democrat sign in the bunch and McCain and Romney were very absent.
Also it seems Neil Boortz and I have something in common. As I left my polling place he was discussing his website where he has had a poll up regarding the various candidates. His webwench, as he refers to his webmaster, had left off Ron Paul. This has resulted in hundreds of emails of complaint from the legion of supporters for Dr. Paul.
Yesterday over at History Is Elementary I posted a very simple lesson plan I had used to provide an opportunity for students to hone their comparing and contrasting skills. It was an innocent enough plan, or so I thought. I included various videos from the viable candidates that are left.
I left out Ron Paul. Oops!
