Don't Forget To Give Them The Finger On Tuesday

4,427 American soldiers lost their lives in the War on Iraq. 31,929 were wounded (20% of which are serious brain or spinal injuries). About $900 billion of US taxpayers' funds have been spent through Sept 2010.

If our country has anything to show for this horrendous loss of American life and treasure, it is in the hope and promise that Iraqi's can vote for their government officials in a real and durable democracy. In America, we seem to take that privilege lightly, almost willing to forfeit it just to avoid it, or if we can only push the responsibility onto somebody else.

There are some huge stakes hanging in the balance this Tuesday. The corporate politicians and their 24/7 Xstream media are hoping they made you sick enough not to bother to vote. We can't let those who drove our country into the ditch win by default - simply because we feel turned off by the campaigns or just don't feel up to voting.

Without you, there's a good chance the wrong candidates will win. Please give them the finger on Tuesday, figuratively speaking of course.

Cute post. But rethuglicans deserve the middle finger as well.
