I, as I'm sure many of you did, exercised my voting ability this morning for the midterm congressional elections.
I slept at my parents’ house last night and voted in Maryland. I haven't "officially" transferred my permanent residency to DC and I decided that today would be a good day to end my civic responsibilities to the Crab State on a positive note.
What is unfortunate is that moving to Washington, "the cradle of democracy," means that I no longer have a say in National politics.
That is not cool.
DC is all about taxation without representation. I can vote for local politics... mayor... school board... but other than that... and the presidential election...
I got nuthin.
Anyway, it is my hope.... nay.... my intent... to find some political hot spot watering hole to hang out in tonight and watch the election results come in. It’s an important night for the city... there are a lot of vested interests at stake with the power structure in congress and I'm gonna watch it go down.
