TALES OF IDAHO HERE - GO VOTE, MY FELLOW SPUD-PATRIOTS!Submitted by paul4won on Tue, 05/27/2008 - 09:27
I have been up since 3:00 AM, and have promised my husband I will wait until he gets off of work to go vote with him. He is the candidate in the family, I want to photograph him with his ballot! Here is my tale from yesterday: I intended to spend the day campaigning, our children literally insisted we take a break and they arrived at our door with picnic supplies and dragged us to the mountains. I eased my sense of guilt by taking my "Ron Paul Info Here" sign out and sticking it next to the Forest Service dirt road we had day-camped beside.
Yes, my friends, in the middle of the mountains of Idaho at roughly 2:00 PM yesterday, we converted one more person!
The view from here? I have heard "20%" kicked around a bit too often, and I am putting in writing BEFORE the polls open that if he gets 20% I am going to be VERY suspicious. We are so late in the process that the GOP here has launched counter-measures - some of them nasty! However, I think Idaho could prove a very interesting election. As a totally non-denominational person, I invite you all to hope, pray, beat drums, burn incense, and if you live in Idaho - GO VOTE!!!
Thanks to you all! This has been quite a ride, and it has been a real value to me to be able to come here and interact with you spambots! ;)
