In the 1964 election, as a 19 year old, I had to stand idly by, as absentee ballot requests were passed out among my older military friends. Old enough to serve my country but still not old enough to vote.
I’m glad that law was changed.
Well that is the 2nd point of disagreement I have with you!
#1 Elections have gone down hill and campaigns have become non serious since 18 year olds got the vote. (Obama’s going to pay me out of his stash. Free college tuition. Forgive student loans, etc., etc.)
#2 Voting 3rd Party will just elect Obama. I hope you will reconsider. Better vote the lesser of 2 evils and use all your might to influence him to stay on the straight and narrow. I hope you reconsider your vow. We can’t take 4 more years of this disasterous presidency.
Adding to thoughts on #2. I voted for Buchanen in the Primary in 1992, and I think that fight undercut Bush 41’s will to campaign. We got 8 years of Clinton as a result, and I’ll never forgive myself. Do you think we’d still be stuck with Hillary if Bush 41 had won that election?
I supported and voted for Santorum in this election (after we lost Palin and Bachman as candidates.) I’m not ready to put a Romney sign in my yard yet, but Romney will get my vote and my prayers if he leads our ticket in Nov.
