    Alex:
    When I first read this post, I agreed with you. I own a business in Austin, TX and I thought it would be a great idea to give people time off to vote.

    Then I remembered what America has devolved into over the last 20 years. A sad group of entitled, overweight individuals who would rather have most anything handed to them in lieu of effort or hard work (gross generalization - but it is getting worse). I then thought about our forefathers who risked treason and the gallows for our right to vote. I then remembered my great grandfather who fought in WWII and my brother who fought in Afghanistan and Iraq. The moms who lost their sons, husbands, daughters.

    I hope it rains, hails and storms on Tuesday. I hope the line for voting is 3 hours long and folks are freezing cold. I don't want anyone voting for my next president who isn't willing to skip happy hour at Applebees. This is supposed to be hard. It should be the tiny, fraction of a sacrifice that others made before us. It is the least we can do.
