A Feel Good Story

I live in Pennsylvania, and was very excited to vote in the primary yesterday. I recently turned 18, and it was the first time I had ever voted. I had no idea how exciting the experiance would become.

Anyway, my polling place is close to where I live, so I decided to walk there and get some exercise. When I arrived, I noticed a lot of yard signs for differint candidates, BUT NOT ONE FOR RON PAUL!! Needless to say I was shocked. How could something like that happen?

I knew I had to fix this wrong. I had only bought one sign for my own yard, so I couldn't use that one. Then I rememberd.... about a mile away, along the side of a busy road was a strandad old dirty RP sign that someone had put there about a year ago. I ran the whole mile to get the sign, and I ran whole mile back to place it at the polling place. At times, running along the side of a major road, I felt like an idiot, but the idea of Ron Paul NOT being represented in SOME WAY at that polling place made me so angry, that it gave me the will to keep going. Finally, with my side feeling like somebody stabbed me with a knife, I made it.

The sign was dirty so I wiped it clean with my shirt, and it was bent pretty badly, but I did a good job fixing it, all and all, it looked almost new.

I went inside, feeling like a million bucks, to vote for the first time ever.
