The line was long at the Douglas County Election Commission here in Omaha Nebraska but we were determined to see it through to the end. We took our daughters with us so they could have an educational experience about what it's like to vote in the United States of America. Plus, the lines are just going to get worse the closer we get to Election Day.
While we were standing in line there was a young girl about four or five people ahead of us who really needed to shut her mouth. My young girls took it upon themselves to plug their ears because every other word coming out of her mouth was nothing but filth. She was cussing up a storm! She needed her mouth pottied and her butt spanked.
When we got inside our 8 year old went with me and the 6 year old went with their Dad. Overall, I think it was a positive experience for them minus the potty mouth. I showed them the form along with the ballot and explained what we were doing by filling out the bubbles on the form. We also allowed them to turn our ballots in for us and they got to pick up "I Voted Today" stickers.
I'm still in awe that our elected officials here in Nebraska want a 100% raise as well as 3 consecutive terms instead of 2 consecutive terms. My husband hasn't had a raise in YEARS because in this economy you don't get raises. In this economy you get to keep your job. Prices are going up in quite a lot of things and they want a 100% raise. They want you and me to pay for that. NO! I would prefer to increase our tithe because that is who is getting hit the hardest. And NO, I don’t want Govt intervention because most things they touch by way of “social programming” winds up being a big waste of corruption. My help comes from the LORD the maker of heaven and earth, NOT Govt.
Have you voted yet? If so, what was your experience?
