I voted early this morning. I was in line waiting at 7 am for polls to open. I believe every American who is entitled to vote should. I know many people don't believe that as they are afraid of their vote but to me its one of the greatest freedoms we have. I would like to see the choices become more multi party and not just the two major parties. I do know there are others on the ballot I mean it would be better for our country if the presidential election looked more like many local elections with several candidates getting in the 20% range. Unfortunately many Americans who may want to choose another candidate feel it would be a wasted vote. The only wasted vote is the one not made. And yes I do realize that is just my opinion. Do not misunderstand, I do not mean to imply that people should be forced to vote, I just believe its a mistake to not vote. I also do not subscribe to the addage "If you don't vote you can't complain" . I believe very strongly in the freedom of speech. Just some random thoughts on this election day.
