I'm Flattered That My Vote Matters So Much

I feel special.  In the last few days, I've gotten "personal" calls from . . .

Mitt Romney

Newt Gingrich

Dick Cheney

Former California governor Pete Wilson

Meg Witman from Ebay (running for governor)

Congressman Tom McClintock

The Howard Jarvis Taxpayer's association

Three former state assemblymen

Two local mayors

Three former police chiefs

As well as some "concerned" woman's group

I am so very flattered that these important people would take time out of their busy schedules to call me because they care about me so much and want me to know that my vote counts. 

If they saw my completed ballot and realized that any political candidate who interrupts my day with a robo-call is far less likely to get my vote, I wonder if they'd call back during the next election cycle . . .

When that started happening to me a few years ago, I bought an answering machine and let it do my talking for me.

When an 888 number calls and the ID says, "Unavailable," I am, too.

I kind of like not being so special. I did not receive one call from anyone running for office but I still intend to vote today.
