I've Voted For John Kerry

I'll be at my job on November 2nd, so today I found out where early voting was in Davidson County (just down the road from me, as it turned out), and got into line.

Lots of people there. The wait wasn't too terribly long.

Then it was just the voting booth and I. That didn't take too long either. I had three races to vote in, and I picked Gary Moore for my State House Representative, Jim Cooper for my Congressman, and John Kerry and John Edwards to be the President and Vice-President of the United States.

Looking forward to a three for three win there...

The Declaration of Independence

When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
Mr. Bush, please take notes.

Three cheers for the 11th!
