2000 election, not this TIME

Don't Forget To Vote

By Robert Paul Reyes

After almost two years the 2008 presidential campaign is finally over. No more robo calls, negative ads, talking heads and bewildering and often contradictory polls. No more stump speeches and debates, now we wait only for the victory and concession speeches.

2000 election, not this TIME

If you are sick and tired of invasive robo calls, deceitful ads and negative campaigning, now is the time to take a stand. Vote for the candidate who ran the most clean campaign.

If you think that the only poll that matters is the one on election day, then prove it by voting.

If you are persuaded that the talking heads on TV are biased against your candidate--get even by voting.

It`s ludicrous to follow the campaign for months, watching the debates and listening to the analysts and then fail to vote. That`s like courting a lady by sending her flowers and love letters, and then saying you`re too busy when she finally says she will go out with you on the weekend.

But enough yapping, just vote!
