"Get your facts first, and then you can distort them as much as you please." (Mark Twain)

Most of all, though, I love taking my son to the polls with me. I will always remember going to the Butte (MT) Civic Center with my mom when she voted in 1964, and I suspect that my almost religious attachment to small-"R" republican government can be traced directly to that experience. Dropping a ballot in the mail lacks a certain je ne sais quoi that is, for me, part of the joy and hope of politics.
