You see, boys forget what their country means by just reading The Land of the Free in history books. Then they get to be men they forget even more. Liberty’s too precious a thing to be buried in books, Miss Saunders. Men should hold it up in front of them every single day of their lives and say: I’m free to think and to speak. My ancestors couldn’t, I can, and my children will. Boys ought to grow up remembering that.– Jefferson Smith; Mr. Smith Goes to Washington (1939)
As you all know, Mr. Smith Goes to Washington is one of my favorite movies. This little bit from that movie reminds me of how important it is to vote.
Now I’m not urging you to go out and vote this November. That is an awful log time to wait to express one’s opinion. What I’m urging you to do is go to the following website:
Once you are there you should see something like the picture below:
That is a picture of Becky’s rabbit Maude. Once there you should exercise your ability to think for yourself and do what I’m about to tell you to do. Vote for Maude as the “Cutest Pet”.
Maude thanks you for your support.
