All In The Name Of FREEDOM

Mommy #2 voted today. She always VOTES. She said it makes her feel a part of the machinery that makes the country work. She is funny like that. . . always wanting to be in control and leading the march.

Like when we go for WALKS. She puts me on a leash and gives me just enough slack to make me think that I am IN CONTROL. But if I stray too far to one side or take too long to SNIFF a particularly SMELLY patch of grass, she yanks on the leash (lightly, she is not a MEANIE) and reminds me we are supposed to be WALKING.

I asked her what she was VOTING for - was it just one thing or person? No, she said. It was more for an ideal, a PATH that she hopes the politicians who REPRESENT her follow. Otherwise, she said, they have NO IDEAS but their own of which way to take the country.

Freedom, she explained, is best represented in voting - in having a VOICE in what your government does or doesn't do. That, she said, is what differentiates us from the rest of the WORLD.

Mommy! I yawned. You are getting WAY too HEAVY for me. I even forgot the QUESTION I asked you and why it was even IMPORTANT to me. I, uh, I think. . . yes, I am sure, that I VOTE for a second breakfast. All that "EXERCISING my FREEDOM" has made me HUNGRY.

I guess that's why the mommies have the thumbs. They can do all the thinking and decision making while we keep up on our beauty sleep. *yawn*

Hey Noods!

Hope it's okay to call you Noods, if not I'll just go back to Noodles. ;) I help my mom fill out her absentee ballot - major boring stuff. There weren't any initiates declaring us pugs a right to more treats. :(

Good for your mom! Voting is incredibly important and not enough people do it. Even when mom has a hard time with the options, she still votes. Even if she writes in her own name.
