Little men in little booths with little pencils making little crosses
To my friends liberal, conservative and anywhere in between, this is worth a read and whatever your informed opinion, please keep making those little crosses….
At the bottom of all the tributes paid to democracy is the little man, walking into the little booth, with a little pencil, making a little cross on a little bit of paper. . . . –G. K. Chesterton
Today is not a day for partisan passion or knots in the stomach, not a day to whip yourself into a frenzy about the nation going to heck in a handcart if your guy loses, but a day to marvel at what we have here, the Republic blessed by Providence and kept by millions of hands and hearts and minds since 1789. Vote today and vote joyfully, for we are a people too favored by fortune to ever take lightly this gift, that we get to be those little men in the little booths making the crosses that determine who gets to represent us.
