At 11am that’s the count in the fully engaged Town of Exeter, NH.
“Giuliani is coming!”
“Bite the bullet” nice backhanded exhortation from the Newspaper in today’s editorial.
What is the point of all the noise being made about the political process, the future of the Country, “My boy won’t be able to get a job at the mill and live in the same falling apart Town” Television awash with pundits, Editorials,WSJ running article after article about the perils of home ownership, “rent and invest instead!” fundamental lack of support for science and math over sports, Francese’s crystal ball, Tea Party’s et al,mortgage walkaways, no bankers in jail,WAR, “You watch Fox?”, a woman screaming at selectmen, lawsuits for the disenfranchised.
Somber community funerals for the fallen.
What is the point of any of that if citizens in communities do not exercise their right and duty?
I had a guy tell me today he really might not go over and vote. “I am voting no anyway” he says.
I pretty much let it slide as I was honestly floored by such a comment and now that person has been diminished in my eyes.
That part really bugs me and maybe sharing was not such a good idea.
I asked him to reconsider the not voting because I want to know the truth about the Town and this can only be proved to me with a large turnout.
You simply have to vote.
There is no gauntlet of signs at the Talbot Gym to avoid , eyes downcast, hurrying.
If only a handful decide this matter of the culverts the howling will never cease.
There will never be any changes, none, unless you participate on every vote.
“Aw c’mon post some sunset pics will ya”.
