I take my responsibilities as a citizen seriously and I try to vote in every election and primary, even for local office. I figure that if I don't vote, I don't have a right to complain and I'm sure all of you know how much I like to complain. I also like to make sure I vote for school board positions so I can keep the Intelligent Designers out off office.

Unfortunately, I didn't find this site until after I returned home from the polls:
http://www.votemedford2005.com/

However, I did manage to do some good. There were at least 3 people with petitions for a constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage. I did my part by occupying two of them for about 10 minutes while several voters walked past and therefore, did not sign the petition. Well, I'm happy to do my part!

It occurred to me that this might be a good tactic to use in the future. If enough of us can pose as voters and occupy the petitioners in polite debate and conversation, we can actively prevent them from accosting other voters and getting their signatures.

Now that people are back from Pennsic, I'm going to try this again:


Please consider the following questions in terms of your country of citizenship.

What does it mean to be a good citizen?

Do you consider yourself to be a good citizen?

Is it important to you to be a good citizen?

Thank you.


P.S. For those curious, my answers are here:
