Please Vote!

Hello my Crafting Friends!!  Just wanted to send out a reminder that if you live in the USA please exercise your right to vote today!  We live in an AWESOME time where ALL Americans 18 and older can vote!  Isn't that incredible??  There were many who fought for that right!

Here was my experience today!  Starting at the end of the line with donuts waiting.  I decided to pass on the goodies but wish I would have grabbed one 2 hours later!!

Here was my view from the back of the line!

 I don't really like to talk politics on my blog but I'm sure you all can figure who I am voting for.  It is not because of his religion that I am voting for him but what he stands for. I encourage all of you to read up on who you are voting for.  The great part about our country is that we get to let our voice be heard on who we want in government.   Please do not vote for a candidate just because your favorite celebrity endorses them.  Please read about their platform and see if they represent what you want in YOUR president!  



Fox News showed up and interviewed the person next to me.  I almost jumped in!  How fun to be on the news, right??  LOL!

 Boo hoo!  I had to put my phone away!!

When I left the line was wrapped around the building.  I waited 2 hours to vote and when I left it was a 3 1/2 hour wait!!!

I voted!  Did you??

  9. I voted for Romney because he stood for what I believe on. Unfortunately 1/2 of US did not support this so we are stuck with what we have. My only positive outlook is that the popular vote was not a landslide for the president so that tell me that our country still has hope.

  10. Robyn, I have to tell you...
    I was so miserable with the election returns last night that I didn't know what to do with myself. I just cried. Then I had an inspiration. I turned off the news and put in my Pink Stamper Cricut Fun #2 DVD set and watched you make Cricut projects until I could calm down enough to go to bed. Today, I need to watch Disc 2 of that set. Then if I'm still miserable, I'll go on to the Cricut Fun #3 set :)

    Thanks for your immeasurable help getting me through a difficult night.

  11. Hubby & I voted too but was disappointed with results.I agree with you about celebrities. Eva Longoria's mouth has forever changed how I view her. She/others need to accept they are liked for their job & not their political views.

    Chattanooga was busy, but we luckily didn't have to wait in lines though I was told we had a great turnout. Our precinct must have more voting booths.

    Love ya here in Tennessee.

  12. Thanks for reminding everyone to vote. Can't believe people don't take the time to really learn about the candidates and cast a vote based on facts and how they mesh with one's beliefs. It's not enough to listen to others' opinions or believe all the email whoppers that uninformed people forward.

    Also, so happy to live in a country where it's ok to share your views no matter who you are or what you do!

  13. I think Diane Sawyer really put it into perspective last night when she said we had the right to vote, and people in other countries are literally dying for the same right. God Bless the USA.

  15. devastated is my word of the week. I live in the land of fruits and nuts that voted to have the highest tax sales tax in the nation. I have no idea what happened on Tuesday night...and how our country has lost it's way. Romney would have been an amazing president. and thank you for being so bold to share with us your views...

  17. Robyn, your post was very well put. Thanks for encouraging everyone to vote no matter their choice. I voted Obama as I do believe in his platform. I really don't think people vote one way or another because of a celebrity. (At least I hope they don't) You really are a very diplomatic woman. Deep down I think that all politics and politicians have base issues that need work no matter what side you lean toward.

  18. Robyn, I am glad you don't talk politics. Everyone has thier own opinion and the voice of the people was heard. I voted for President Obama, because I am one of those middle class who need tax help. Thank God there are no divisions in crafting or this nation would really be in trouble. Thanks for sharing and encouraging people to vote. Maybe next time for others, but until then we are still one nation under God and only he can change the hearts of man.
