Election Day!

It's finally here!

Living in a battleground state has it's perks, like getting to meet Senator McCain, his wife, Cindy, Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, and former Secretary of Labor Elaine Chao, all in one morning!
Senator Graham and I exchanged a "Go Gamecocks!"

But then there's the five ads in a row on TV, and the ten ads in the mail, plus signs everywhere.

But it's all worth it. What lucky people we are where our elections are fair and non-violent, and the candidate is chosen by a system that has worked 44 times. How lucky we are that our candidates can debate, trade jabs, and the people can hold their leaders accountable without fear of repercussions. How lucky we are that Democrats and Republicans can still be friends at the end of the day. 

I don't care if you're a Romney/Ryan Republican, Gary Johnson Libertarian, or even a Obama/Biden Democrat. As Gladys Payne Schieffer said, "Go vote; it makes you feel big and strong". Exercise your right as an American.

Although I am a Republican, I love America more than I love being in a certain party.

In short: Go America. Go Vote.
