The Greater Northwest-November 2

We're roaring over the mountains on the I-90 in Washington. The scenery is spectacular, with towering pines, rocky cliffs and Halloween-colored leaves. The Redskins are winning, Lew's happy, and the sun is shining (after a few gloomy stretches in Oregon).


GOVOTE‬! Why? Because that's what our democracy is all about. Choosing which idiots we want to lead us. Countless American's died to preserve the right for you to go into a voting booth and feel like you're making no difference at all. Well just casting that vote is a simple act of faith which keeps the pulse of our democracy going. You vote so that our children realize how important it is, even at times like these. You vote because for one brief shining moment you may make a difference. You vote so that maybe next time you have someone you really want to vote for. You vote just to show the rest of the world that you care. You vote in order to keep alive the belief in your soul that you can change the world.
