dear ms b-we voted


good morning ms b
by the time you wake up this morning
i will have voted

your gma and i go early to the polls to vote
we dont usually early vote unless we are out of town
we like the ambiance of election day
seeing all the campaign signs
listening to all the folks the right distance from the
poll entrance
sometimes shouting at each other
we even enjoy the lines
now here in the country the lines are not usually too long

we vote in an old community center
actually its an old high school gym
from a now closed high school
a real old gym by the way

it just makes the ambiance even  better

now ms b
i have voted in every election for president since i could vote
its my right my duty to do it
if i dont vote
then i dont have any right to complain about things
ive even wrote in my vote before
even voted third party once or twice

so when folks start talking about politics
in that whiny complaining voice
i say
did you vote
if they say no
i raise my hand towards them
and say
just talk to the hand

now ms b
this election is a crazy one this year
its a very very important one
this one will determine a lot of things that are important
for you

the next president will probably nominate 1 maybe 2
supreme court justices
some of those on there now
look a little shaky when they walk

this will determine which way the court will lean for the next
several years
probably into your early adult life

so who folks vote for president will determine a lot
just based on the supreme court nominations

now there are a lot of other things are at stake
if we can just get the candidates to discuss them
intelligently and civil like

this ms b
is an awful primary season
its scary nauseating even
to think that some of the things that these candidates are talking about
like you know
the real politicians of washington
based on the real housewives shows

ms b
i hope when you grow up
that this world got left better for you
i am worried though
watching all this trash this political season
that it will not be

Image result for organic green doctor i voted
so this morning
when your gma and i go to the polls
as we pull the leaver
we will look at each other
what is best for ms b

thats how we plan to vote

so ms b
i hope you carry on this tradition in 17 years

everyone go vote when its your time
its your right
its your duty
dont do it
you give up your right to complain about things
if we dont all vote
we all lose in the end

  1. Love this. Guess we have grandchildren about the same age. We have two little girls ages almost 17 months and almost 10 months. I loved what you said about pulling the lever for them. So true.......
