Take the election personally
But back to the list of things I want my grand baby to have-- clean water & air, a leader who will not trash the planet with reckless resource extraction, and failure to think ahead or think about environmental
stewardship. Once the strip mining, fracking, & oil spilling happen, it's awful hard to get the genie back into the bottle to fix it.
The State of Oregon votes by mail only. I have the ballot in my hot hands, and I am ready to cast my votes.
Of course I think about my needs & the fact I do not want the age of retirement to be 70 or 80 something (Mitt's way to save some bucks), & I don't want the government making reproductive choices for me or the grand baby. I want Planned Parenthood fully funded, and I think Big Bird & Sesame Street are a good long term investment (educational programming- free to the public).
For many reasons, voting against Mitt Romney makes so much sense.
