Random Thoughts on Voting

A few random thoughts offered as tribute to the courage of Iraqis in voting on Sunday

To give the victory to the right, not bloody bullets, but peaceful ballots only, are necessary.
-Abraham Lincoln

I hope that democracy will be successful enough that Iraqis will start making statements (see below) that show they are starting to take democracy for granted.

We’d all like t’vote fer th’best man but he’s never a candidate.
-Kin Hubbard
Closing thought when discouraged about the government.
Democracy is cumbersome, slow, and inefficient, but in due time, the voice of the people will be heard and their latent wisdom will prevail.
-Unknown but attributed to Thomas Jefferson
