The Climax

We are finally here.

It feels like an eternity since we first noticed election coverage in our newspapers and on our televisions.

John McCain announced his candidacy in late 2006 and Barack Obama has been running for president since he was elected as a senator in 2004.

We are at the crossroads of history, the culmination of both campaigns.

We have witnessed the highs and lows of both sides; every gaffe, every shift in momentum, every new poll- we were there.

These men have spent an enormous amount of time, money and effort trying to win us over. We were bombarded with campaign literature, television ads and stump speeches.

But today belongs to us. This day is ours.

As you go to the polls today, take a moment and think about the awesome power that is democracy. Think about the countless lives lost to ensure our freedoms are protected and our voices never silenced. Think about the candidate who is selfless, who will sacrifice his needs in order to ensure our union is a prosperous one. Think about the numerous threats posed to this country that are very real and grow more threatening with each passing day. Lastly, think about which candidate you will entrust with your life and the lives of your loved ones.

And then go out and vote for the Republican of your choice.
