One More Thing!
This was Election week here in Milwaukee. This is the election for local positions and judgeships, grass roots kind of topics…neighborhood issues.
I challenge the fans of BBDStyle to Get Up. Dress Up. & Show Up for Election Day….next time you have an election in your neck of the woods! Show up to vote at your polling place. Is it old and tired? Are the chairs that the Election Judges have to sit on ALL DAY rusty and torn and dilapidated? Is the Election held in a old schoolhouse that hasn’t been visited in years and years??
Are the Judges themselves old and gray and tired? Is it hard for them to process people thru the line in a timely fashion….not because they are lazy, but because they can’t?! They can’t process what to do next quickly enough? Are we asking people to come out and vote for jobs nobody knows anything about? Or for people running unopposed….not in one category on the ballot, but for Most categories on the ballot?
It’s a disgrace! My polling place is a travesty. People all over the world envy our status as a free society….and here we have contest after contest where nobody Votes! In one contest here in town, this week, a write in candidate won her race. That is wonderful news…in fact she was my candidate….but she won with 79 votes….the opponent got 60….in the whole district! That is terrible!
When I walked into the polling place the other day I was overwhelmed with Tired…Old….Dreary…and OBSOLETE! Why would any smart, busy, successful young person ever make the time in her busy day to go there….for any reason ….. including to vote for old people who are running unopposed to jobs that no one wants.
It seems a little bit CRAZY doesn’t it!
Remember….If you stand for Nothing….What will you Fall for?
