november 2 - rock the vote!!

ok, i'll admit. i'm not voting today. i forgot to absentee ballot in north dakota and haven't registered in boston. so... do as i say and not as i do. here are some reasons from the huffpo on why you should vote blue and not red today. for full explanations read here.
  1. You don't want a future of economic crashes and bubbles.
  2. You want health insurance.
  3. We cannot afford 2+ years of gridlock in Congress.
  4. You want American education to get better.
  5. You want the Internet to remain a free and level playing field.
  6. You want leaders who aren't afraid to pass unpopular legislation when necessary.
  7. You hate the deficit.
  8. You care about the earth.
  9. You don't want a future in which elections can be purchased by the highest bidder.
  11. You believe that wealth does not trickle down from above; it flows upward.
are you voting today?? especially for my brothers in north dakota - please go vote!!

and as an aside, if you have 11 minutes, this video is EXCELLENT for explaining the credit crisis and what has happened in the past 10 years to the economy. it should help you understand and if not, ask me!
