Fourscore and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal. Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation or any nation so conceived and so dedicated can long endure. We are met on a great battlefield of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field as a final resting-place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this. But in a larger sense, we cannot dedicate, we cannot consecrate, we cannot hallow this ground. The brave men, living and dead who struggled here have consecrated it far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living rather to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us--that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion--that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain, that this nation under God shall have a new birth of freedom, and that government of the people, by the people, for the people shall not perish from the earth.
Abraham Lincon, Gettysburg, PA, November 19, 1863

The harder they come, the harder they’ll fall, one and all.

Yes I did. I've always loved voting. My first presidential vote -- for McGovern, from the old University of Nevada Reno gym -- has always stood out in my memory. Voting in this election -- for Obama, from my dining room table because Oregon has vote-by-mail -- transcends that first experience.

Fingers crossed that you guys get a good 'un this time around... or at least, not anyone too batshit warmongering.

I voted Early yesterday. It was pretty easy. I guess I am lucky I dont live in a battleground state where lines were 6 hours. It took me an hour tops, counting parking.

Louisiana went soundly & solidly McCain, so I'm glad I didn't put more carbon emissions into the atmosphere to waste my time voting. I'm also glad that enough of the rest of the country had enough sense to do the right thing!

I'm just to glad we HAPPENED!!!! We woke up and voted for the right person who - in my personal belief will try harder then anyone to prove he is the man who can do the best job for our country! The rest of the world is celebrating too as they too wished for the election to go this way.

Your blog is beautiful Yoga - I'm so glad I came across it. Thanks so much for the comments on mine as well!

Cheers all!

It was the first election where I had the ability to vote and of course I did. So proud I could.
