So I Voted…

Midterms 2018: Voters face malfunctioning machines and long lines at polls  across country on Election Day

Voting, in my neighborhood, used to be a ten or 15-minute exercise. Today I stood in line for 45 minutes or so. And while I was doing that, it got cold outside and started to rain. So much for my writing today.

They had new voting machines, and only two of them instead of the usual four or five. The line stretched all around the gym. These machines are entirely electronic. You press the screen to vote and when you’re done, it displays your ballot for inspection so that you have a chance to correct any discrepancies. I didn’t find any, so I cast my vote: “Iacta alea est” (“The die is cast”), as Julius Caesar once said.

My leg is acting up.

O Lord, if you ever had a mind to intervene in one of our elections, now would be a good time for it. We have to get out from under Democrat rule before they finally destroy our country. Deliver us out of their wicked and ungodly hands. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

I wonder if there’s enough sun for me to try to write.
