Hey, for the first time in my life I got to vote :) And I was proud of it,
since I recently became a US citizen just last September.  I asked my
roommate if he was going to vote. He said he'd think about it. That was 3
days before election day and he hadn't even been registered at the time.
Well, he didn't vote.

I believe that if any person who criticizes "this guy", and says that
he/she would vote for the other guy and doesn't perform his/her civic duty,
in my view, he/she is a hypocrit.

Being a new Citizen, I was proud and honored to be able to vote :)

As you should be.  Doesn't matter who you voted for, you *got involved* and you
exercised what is the most prized right of any citizen, anywhere, the right to
vote and choose the shape of the country.

And as we've seen, even a few votes here and there can make a *profound*

Doesn't matter to me who you voted for, that ain't the issue.  That you chose
to matter, is what's important.
