How I Voted

In order to avoid long early voter lines, I just voted at the Oak Park Conservatory. There were only 5 in line. I went with the old paper ballot. I like connecting the arrows. I voted for Barack because I think he's a cool guy, and I can tell my grandchildren that I voted for the first African-African  president who was a Muslim Socialist.I can also argue that I am not a racist, which is good. Plus  Romney reminds me of Judge Smails from Caddy Shack. What a tool.                  

I wanted to voted against all the Democrat candidates for state and county offices, but most of them ran unopposed, which might be part of the problem. Duh. Plus I don't want to encourage these hackers.   I went with the Green Party candidates for Water Reclamation. Seems kind of obvious.                     

I forgot my list of "bad" judges, so I voted "No" on all of them. My apologies to the good ones if there were any. Maybe they should be appointed. I must admit I felt kind of like Danton or Robespiere going all anarchial on the judicial system. 

I voted "Yes" on being informed about fracking whatever it is. And "No" on changing the Illinois Constitution . If the pols are for amending, I'm against it.                                   

All in all I had a pretty good time considering that my vote this morning was utterly meaningless.

You voted for Obama because he is "cool." Be sure to remind your kids of that when they are arrested rioting in the streets a la a Greece when the bills come due from the party the "cool guy" kept going at their expense. Can you say QE4?
