It's about time to make another choice for our countries leadership, and the stakes are high as always. We've been subjected to all manner of political doublespeak but the bottom line is the decision is made by voters, and I hope you are educated on the issues and the people we're choosing to lead us.

Whether you politically lean left, right, or somewhere in the middle, I'd ask you to watch the following short dramatic presentation. You may agree or not, but I think the "bum" answers the question "What is the particular genius of the Constitution?" extremely well. If you agree, keeping his description in mind as you vote might make some sense.

Yeee-Haaa, and AMEN Well Said, to the Heart of our System of Government. Thanks Brian.

Hope you don't mind, but I had something pop into my echo chamber today, and will post it here, if you don't mind:

Voting Poem or Lilt (to the tune of Black Bird, with last stanza from Hi Ho song)

by Arley Steinhour 110110

Pack up all the cares and whoa,

Here We go, 'Voting Joe,'

Bye, Bye, Spend-thrifts.

We don't care which team you're on,

We will vote, and then you're gone,

Bye, Bye, Spend-thrifts.

Every time a zero, adds to ... spen...ding,

We and ours ... don't know who is ... len ... ding.

With God's help, and 'Grind-stone Nose,'

We'll recover, from spending Blow's.

Save our Country.

Country going down the drain,

Will it ever float again,

Save our Country.

Voting is the only way to ... save ... it,

If we don't, God will never ... Bless ... it.

Never can another say,

we did it any other way.

Saving, Country.

People vote-in honest folk

We'll recover, ain't no Joke.

Saving, Country.

So, get out, and vote away ... on ... Tuesday,

A Right outcome will dispel a ... Blues ... day.

SO: ... Hi-Ho, Hi-Ho, it's off to Vote We go,

With our vote in hand, We rule the land, ... Hi-Ho, ... Hi ... Ho.

Anyone wishing to pass it on to friends and family may do so. Without a proper vote, we could be doomed. Ponder, Please...Arley
