Election Day ’12

For those of you that know me, you probably know that I have not been chanting “Four More Years!” this fall.  That doesn’t mean that I’m thrilled with nor buy into everything the other side says either.  I tend to agree with William Weld who said, “I believe the government should stay out of your wallet and out of your bedroom.” which I’ve heard paraphrased as “I wish the Democrats would stay out of my wallet and the Republicans would stay out of my bedroom!”  Whatever the outcome, I will just be glad to have it over.  The negative campaigning has taken its toll and I’m concerned that whoever wins will claim a mandate, but in reality not be able to do anything.  Normally I’m somewhat in favor of gridlock going by the theory that if they can’t do anything, they also can’t do any harm.  In this case though, I feel the uncertainty of the last few years has contributed to the economic malaise.  If you’re informed voter, get out and vote.  If you’re not?  Stay home!

In other election day events, the Senior Expo is going on at the Lifeplex.  Marshall County Community Foundation (MCCF) will be there in a booth with the United Way.  Since I’m now a board member, I want to promote their cause.  They will be talking about The John Marshall Legacy Society.

John Marshall was the 4th Chief Justice of the Supreme Court and the namesake for Marshall County.  Here’s an excerpt taken from the MCCF John Marshall Legacy Society flyer:

John Marshall (1775 – 1835) is considered by many as one of the greatest jurists that ever served on the Supreme Court of the United States of America. His tenure as Chief Justice of the Supreme Court (1801 – 1835) produced some of the most important decisions that have become fundamentals of U.S. law and shaped our country’s way of life. Truly, Chief Justice Marshall was a man who accomplished much during his life and, by his actions, left a positive legacy that has affected many generations beyond his mortal years. In recognition of his life’s work, Marshall County, Indiana was named in his honor on February 7, 1835.

If you’re out and about after voting, stop by and see Jennifer, Jayne and Amanda.
