Get Ready To Vote

I got one of those automated calls last week and nearly hung up until I found out it was about a missing pet, Lulu, in Plainfield. I thought it was a very interesting use of robo-calls. Click here to learn more.

The more traditional political-season use produced two more calls, one from John McCain and one from Mitt Romney Friday. Gulp! Did they not know I am a registered Democrat? Or maybe JG gave them my name, as he is convinced I am a Republican.

Well, it really doesn't matter what your party affiliation is in the general election. Despite attempts to brainwash seniors and other voters, you can pick and choose as you will. Look at those names on the ballot and think about what they stand for. Put the ballot under your pillow. Conjure up the future Plainfield might have with this name or that in charge. This is a very important election.

Make sure to check the sample ballot for your polling place. And then vote on Tuesday.

This weekend is the one where candidates pull out all stops to convince voters to choose them. Expect fear tactics and smears from some. I will be looking for rational reasons why somebody should get my vote.

In a nutshell...Vote em all out. GRIP - Get Rid of Incumbent Politicians.
Assistant Mayor Sharon, Mayor Jerry, No Spine Stender, All the County Freeholders ( Republican and Democrats holding office ), and the Governor... They all have to go.

Highly recommend everyone get out and rake leaves this weekend [or help elderly relative with theirs] to:

1. See children in costume
2. Wave away election propraganist
3. See neighbors
4. Dr. told you to get some exercise

Then watch ball games at night.
