Dia de los Muertos

Election Day

Today, in Minnesota we have three primary choices for Governor: Dead, All Dead, and Mostly Dead. I’m not sure any tricks of Miracle Max would bring any of these three Vitamin D deficient characters to life.

But, the Governor’s office is important and voting is important. The CATHOLIC vote is important. Vote like a Catholic. Vote for life, vote for traditional marriage, vote for the common good.

Many Catholics think the “common good” only applies to economic criteria. It does, but not exclusively. Marriage and life also benefit the common good. Without a propogation of the species and a moral family foundation, what’s the point? Voting for a narrow definition of common good is useless if no one is around to reap the benefits or no one who is around gives a rip.

Your Mom may have told you “Eat those vegetables, there are people starving in China” Remember, there are people dying for the right to vote in many nations of the world.

Voting is important-take it seriously. Just. Do. It.

How many new blogs does jackie have in a year?

So anyway - terrific description of the deadbeats running for governor. It's taking all I have to get out and vote today and yep it will be for the pro-life pro-real-marriage guy - but I am struggling all the way.

The other two are no better, Howdy Dudie and Numb-nuts Dayton. Sheesh. These people make sarah Palin look brilliant.

These candidates are indeed uninspiring to say the least, but life is a non-negotiable issue in my book. I am perplexed as to how faithful, practicing Catholics could vote for pro choice candidates.

Pain's daughter isn't all that cute. Palin is hot enough that it makes it hard for some to take her seriously.

Our choices weren't all that great in Indiana either.

But I voted. When i reviewed the catechism on social teaching, I ws depressed at the choices.

Sometimes, i think voting is the most distasteful thing we do as Catholics
