I voted today, and I hope everyone else did as well. I figure that there's very little I can do to positively help my country these days, short of getting into politics, which path I think I need to not go down just now, so I do what I can and I vote.

It reminds me of first principles and idealism, and for just a brief period of time lets me forget about reality and enjoy some of what this country was based upon. It's only on the drive home that I lapse back to reality and start hoping that my vote actually gets recorded, and counted.
