Poremba: Almost time to vote

 OK folks, it won’t be long now until we all go to vote, and the repulsive garbage that has been on television will stop and then we will get to watch more commercials.

Won’t that be fun?

Whatever you decide, please remember to vote your choice. Don’t let  anyone influence your decision.

I am so sick of hearing, “I don’t vote because my vote doesn’t matter.”
