One week until we vote in America

Just want to remind everybody that we're less than a week away from being able to chose who we want to represent us for the next two years. I hope you've studied the candidates and propositions, and are ready to help decide your future.

Remember what these two respected thinkers said many years ago:

"Republics decline into democracies and democracies degenerate into despotisms.” - Aristotle

"The price good men pay for indifference to public affairs is to be ruled by evil men." - Plato

Please VOTE - it's one of the most important rights given to us through our democratic system of government.

If you live in California, I've found an interesting site that allows you to compare the candiates with both video and Q&A sessions. You'll need to enable Java for this site if you're using Firefox. Then click the big blue START Button to see the candidates and their views. Interestingly enough Governor Schwarzenegger didn't submit a video, but at least the others did. Here's the link.
