Happy Election Day! It has always been my feeling that if you don’t use your privilege and obligation to vote, then you don’t have a right to complain. Therefore, every time I move, I immediately get registered to vote – just in case I want to complain. 😉 When I woke up this morning, however, I realized that I was not planning to vote today. I am not making a political statement … I just honestly don’t know what or for whom I am voting. I have lived in this town for such a short time (just 3 months!) and the system is completely different from anything I have ever known. What is a Selectman? I have never even heard that term before! How can I just go to the voting booth and vote for names of people who I know nothing about for positions of which I have never even heard? So, instead of casting a vote today, I decided to personally cast my vote for most memorable election song. Without a doubt, that song for me would by “Don’t Stop” by Fleetwood Mac, used by President Bill Clinton. I grew up loving Fleetwood Mac and I remember how excited I was by their reunion for Clinton’s inauguration. For me, it was the perfect words to the perfect song and it generated such excitement and hope for the future. Would anyone else like to cast a different vote? I would love to hear your choice of most memorable election songs. Hope your woman or man won today!
