Fibertarians Unite*

Tomorrow is a very important day. For all of us. I'm not going to stand on my soap box and tell you who I think you should vote for. I will get up here though and tell you to Go Vote!

Even with all the hard times of late, we are still a nation of great wealth and opportunity. We should never forget that. And never forget the women who lived before a time when they could vote. Or African-Americans. Or those who have died defending our rights. All of them.

And it's not just enough to go place your vote, but please vote responsibly. Vote educated. Do your homework. Don't make a decision based solely on newspaper, radio, tv or internet propaganda. Keep your antennae up.

We don't think twice about researching a spinning technique or how to wash wool, or what might be wrong with a sick lamb or a lame horse. We don't go out and choose a breed of sheep or chickens or skein of yarn just on one person's opinion. We would never open a hive of bees without some learnin' (and a veil ;-).

Read.

Listen.

Learn.



Think.

*For a little levity...

Thanks for one of the most sane and rational political posts I've read! I've had enough ranting and raving to last a lifetime. I say, if your position (or candidate) needs those kinds of theatrics to support it, it must not be able to stand on its own two feet.
