Election day
It is election day and I have a confession to make.

I did not vote.

Yes, I know I will receive the wrath of many good American men and women who argue that I am trampling on a right that men and women died to give me.

I respectively disagree.

I think our right to vote even includes the right not to vote. Thus, I exercised that right.

I didn't vote because I couldn't think of a single candidate who I felt was the right man for the job. In my mind, that is a sad commentary on our political system.

I voted for the "lessor of two evils" last election. I just feel that I cannot, in conscience, do so again.
