This whole dang election has just got me terrified. I'm talking scared shitless. I have no idea how I'm going to get any sleep at all the days before the election; I just pray to God that I'm not so out of it that I can't remember my name when I go vote.
I swore off voting, once. I stood in line to vote for Nixon, and then got called for jury duty because I had registered. Whole deal sort of pissed me off.
So I quit for some years.
Then John Kerry ran.
That woke me up, and I surprised everyone by getting interested and even involved. I voted and voted hard.
There won't come a time in the future that I won't vote. Not again.
