Voting encouraged

Published 1:00 am Saturday, September 25, 2010

I want to say thanks to all the people who worked so hard to make last Saturday’s Vicksburg Tea Party such as success.

I was one of the speakers and, as I attended the rally, my wife and four children thoroughly enjoyed touring your beautiful city.

I left the rally feeling energized that so many citizens are looking forward to voting Nov. 2. I heard one lady say she would crawl over broken glass to get to the voting booth. Enthusiasm like hers is why the Tea Party movement is making such a difference across the nation.

It is my desire that every American who loves this country will storm the voting booths on Election Day — and bring your family, friends and neighbors. If you do not vote, then you have no right to complain. In those famous words, “I am sick and tired of being sick and tired,” I think that so many citizens want to do something about our situation. I know of no better way than voting.
