Absolutely disagree with Anon 9:08! Everyone should vote! Otherwise you have no right to gripe about the government! Better yet, Democrats, double down your efforts. Get all of your family, friends and neighbors to vote! It makes a huge difference!!

Who needs to gripe, when there's nothing to gripe about? Our wise lawmakers pass law after law, and our country just gets better and better. We just need to relax and let them do their jobs, honey.
