Illinois Primary Election Day

At last the big day is here! Big because it means my phone will stop ringing off the hook with election calls. What a waste! I keep getting calls for Republican candidates that there is no chance in Hell I’m going to vote for. Seriously, there are probably only 5 Republicans on my whole block.

This will also be the first election my oldest daughter will vote in. I hope she’ll actually do it. We’ve already done all we can, so now it’s up to her. As a young woman, I think that she has an even bigger stake in this election cycle given the virtually misogynistic statements coming from the GOP candidates and a whole raft of restrictive laws that have been proposed or introduced to Congress. WTF?! Has the GOP lost it’s mind? Sure seems like it. They ought to be ashamed of themselves.
