Right after the 9/11 murders, many people used the tragedy to inspire civic action - "If you stay home and don't spend money, the terrorists win!"
It even went to the absurd.
Overheard at a smokey bar one late Friday night:
Man:"Why don't you come home with me?"
Woman:"Uh, I don't think so."
Man:"If you don't sleep with me, the terrorists win."
But tomorrow's midterm vote could, indeed, help the terrorists win if you don't get out there and take 10 minutes to vote.
For every Republican who stays home, it is a vote for the Democrats. And what will we get if they get into office? Here's a list:
* More taxes
* More "rights" for terrorists
* More social security and other welfare benefits for illegals
* More legislating from the bench - more activist judges passing laws that veer farther and farther away from our Constitution.
* Nancy Pelosi, Barbara Boxer, Dick Durbin, Chuck Schumer, Ted Kennedy and Hillary Clinton
So just go out there and vote. Your country is depending upon you.
