for some reason, as long as i can remember, i get really happy on election day. i feel good and wholesome and like i’m in a working process, just for a day, things are moving and shaking and stuff is happening – stuff that my entire american education was based on. freedom! choices! ownership!
i’m even happier today than i was on my birthday. i’m a huge freak!
enjoy it for a few minutes! stand in the booth, take a deep breath and toast ‘liberty’. toast presidents as mere men, not devil-worshipping heathens. toast the fact that for most americans, pulling the lever or punching the card is the most excercise they’ll get all year.
