Peruse my thoughts...
Very interesting day. I received a phone call this morning from my sister saying she was very excited when she saw my name on the "real" ballot. She had to call and tell me. I got to the polling place about an hour later and it was a strange feeling. A year ago I would have never thought I would be running for office. Just shows you what paying attention to what is going on in our government can do to a person. It makes you want to stand up and change what is going on!
I want to thank everyone who came out to vote today no matter what or who you voted for. We, as Americans, need to be active participants in our government. That is what our forefathers intended for all of us when they said "We the People." Now, We the People, need to coordinate and win back control of our state and our government.
A couple of other items to note: 1) Looks like we have come together and agreed that Right to Work is Wrong for us in Missouri. We need to stay vigilant and make sure it is not slid by us again. 2) I am very excited to announce that I will be watching another race this year as my niece, Nicole Thompson, won her primary in Senate District 6 in Jefferson City. She is to blame for my discovering how naive I was about how much state government affects me and lighting this fire under me.
