No Rest for the Weary

Hopefully 36 hours from now we will know who our next president will be. These next few hours are what it all comes down to. Obama and McCain supporters across the country are working night and day to get their candidate across the 270 electoral vote finish line.

Posting here has been very light the past few months because both my wife and I have been a part of that. Now, more than any time in the past 22 months we need your help. Get out and vote! If you have time (or even if you don't) volunteer. Call your neighbors and remind them to vote; go door to door doing the same; go polling place to polling place encouraging people to brave the hours long lines that are sure to confront us. This country is a representative republic and it ONLY works for those who participate.

Remember also, this fight doesn't end on November 4th. If we elect these people and then stop paying attention, our causes will fall by the wayside. The real work begins November 5th. We must make sure our officials never forget why we put them in office. I have seen many people on the blogs and on Twitter saying they don't know what they will do once this election is over. But we cannot create the change we need if we just leave our elected officials to do it alone.
