To me it seemed like everything in The US Capitol was special and had some unique thought behind it. Everywhere there is art. Even the tunnels leading from the office buildings to the Capitol have art from high school seniors across America. There are huge painting and many sculptures. Even some of the doors are artistic displays like this one outside the Speaker’s Balcony.
I try never to publish political posts because there is way too much of that on Facebook and other social networks. People who know me know how I feel and of my involvement in previous political campaigns. What really bothers me is when I hear reporters say a good turn out is over 60%. In foreign countries up to 90% of the people get out and vote. There is no excuse not to vote and it is your OBLIGATION! Americans like to complain about every governmental decision which is odd because we don’t live in a direct Democracy, we live in a Representative Republic. We don’t get to vote on each decision, we ONLY get to vote for our representatives.The first time I ever voted for President, I voted for Dick Gregory. Please go vote for somebody.
