Yes We Can...


Hey there...

I just got back from 2 glorious days on the Oregon coast...it was sunny and 70+ today, people, no wind!!! This is not my reason for posting. A nice new blog friend, Malagueta, visited and commented and then I read on HER blog about a cool Obama fundraiser done by Denyse Schmidt and her quilter posse. I like that every one seems to be getting involved in this election cycle. What about you friends??

I am vocal about who I am supporting, but that is just me. If you are liking someone else...that is cool, I can support that. I am just asking that people take a little time, inform themselves and then cast a ballot. It is time to take responsibility for your country. There is a little over a week left until election day, please let your voice be heard.
Thanks!
JMB

I'll be glad once the election is over because I'm so beyond tired of all the campaigning on TV. I know who's getting my vote and I feel that I've done my homework on that.

I'm in the same camp with you. I am really feeling nervous and will be HAPPY when it's all over.

I'm with you! My daughter's third grade class is running a round with my Obama t-shirts... If they get it then some grown-ups might take the time to get the facts too...

I appreciate the fact that you mentioned if I am voting differently then you that it is cool with you. Differences in politics can get rough. I suppose that's where never discussing politics and religion came from. Although not all who posted on your sight feel the same way and I realize you have no control over that. I am older than a third grader and I have taken the time to get the facts. The election is not only about facts. It's about whose platform you can relate to. Who speaks to your needs and wants and what the individual voting thinks is best for the country.

I like the way you said that it's cool with you if someone votes for the "other side". After all, we are entitled to our views which might not necessarily be the same as our neighour's.

Some blogs are getting positively dictatorial about voting for the right side which I'm finding very off putting, consider they are supposed to be quilting blogs.

If I could vote I'd go for the same as you!
