4 years ago, I stayed up until we knew that Obama had won. It was awesome.
Tonight, I am old. I will be going to bed by 11pm, (or 10pm, if I’m particularly lucky), so must take this, my very last opportunity, to tell everyone that they must vote.
I care who runs America in the same way that I care about protecting the myth of Santa for under 5-year olds. It is tremendously important, but has very little impact on my actual, day-to-day life. Yet, having been not-at-all-sheltered by my own parents, who loudly fought for the right to ‘go to bed’ and ‘not be bloody Santa’, I feel vehemently that this is something that needs to be protected.
So, if you can, vote. Or else you hate Santa.
*And obviously everyone must vote for whoever they so desire. Although I heard that Romney hates Santa.*
