Quote of the Day - A low voter turnout is an indication of fewer people going to the polls. - Dan Quayle
Mad About Conventions
It's convention time, both for the GOP and the DNC. Yes, the Green Party has a convention, too, as well as the Libertarians.
I presume there are others that I should give equal time to, but you get the idea. There are almost as many political parties as there are people in the U.S. - especially if you ask for opinions.
What's the hullabaloo all about? Pomp and circumstance? Just an opportunity to get together?
Is it really just for show?
No. It's what we're about. It's voting, something other countries rarely get. It's something we've started wars over.
So, join in, enjoy the fun, listen to the speeches and then, come November, do something about it.
