I wasn't born to be loved, and I make no pardons for not loving. I do, and can
say this without ill regret, my family is thicker than water. I have never
cast my opinion farther than the reaches of my home, or in a private affair-
-to get to the point of argument quicker, I never voted for political reasons
because this is why I don't care:

"There were too many questions on the ballot, too many selections to make, so
I wrote in "Sponge Bob Squarepants" for president, for fictional sake"

The Daily Tribunal posted an interesting article commenting on the virtual
outcome of this years elections. Almost as if it was a mandatory item that
could not be substituted or restricted from reading, like say, clipping
valuable coupons. I wanted to see the perforations and meticulously cut-out
the article as if to send it to the white house and receive a complimentary
expulsion from being a citizen, at least for one day. Why not? The article
was inconclusive in both manner and speach-the writer, a reporter-her best
thought was to impeach. There I sat and waited for an invite or at best, a
free subscription for being timely with my payment. No absentee mail today-
I guess I am never home, at least not yet. Sooner or later we all become
accountable for something, even a vote makes the difference. Over one hundred
thousand a day, inquire about Canadien citizenship as of late, so I guess I
was already on this train. United we stood, in lines like cattle-unslaughtered
by the harsh elements-wanting to make "the change"-hoping that your mail will
be handwritten like the "old days"-or better yet the sounds of galloping horse
hooves and a rider on a pony. I remain with Sponge Bob, and until we understand
what it is "we" are doing, united I pray we stand.
