What's it gonna be, Mitt? Dirty politics or an honest preacher's life? You can't have it both ways. Stand in your truth for once. We'd all appreciate it more.
It's not just because he has proven to be the biggest flip-flopper and the most dishonest major party presidential candidate in our lifetimes -- and perhaps even in our parents' lifetimes. It is something much more dangerous.
Now that everyone is empowered by social media to behave in ways they've always wished they could but which vague morality and actual physical, tactile contact with human beings has in the past prevented, here are some ways to make the act of voting more exciting!
As I tell my students at Southern Utah University, our amazing Constitution has only been amended 27 times since its ratification in 1787 and one of those changes enables them, all 18-year-olds, to enjoy a right denied to billions all over this planet.
Bring a flashlight, two sandwiches, plenty of water, a fold-out chair and a wide-brimmed hat. Do not attempt this feat if you are elderly, can't stand for long periods of time or have a heart condition. No, you are not climbing Mount Kilimanjaro -- you are going to vote in South Florida.
When the results come in tomorrow, I will not be thinking about Mitt Romney or Barack Obama, but instead the factors that make this election what I like to call the DUMB election. Here's why.
No matter what you have heard, this is not the most important election we have ever had, at least it's not the only "most important election we have ever had." We had one in 2008, 2004, 2000, 1996, in fact, every four years for as long as I can remember.
I challenge you to get out and vote if you are of age. If you aren't, use this opportunity to learn how the system works and see which party you would fall under and what issues are important to you.
As Americans go to the polls today, it seems a perfect time to take a final look back at what we've been through the past four years. Some of the reasons you may not like, and some things you may think I missed, but these are my top 50 reasons to vote for President Obama.
We might pick up a few very late polls this election morning, but even so, it is well and truly time to list some forecasts. The model confidently predicts that Obama wins the election, with the probability of 270 Electoral College votes or more now up to 91.4 percent.
After months of campaigning, endless ads and news stories, we've made it to the end. While you're exercising your right to vote, take advantage of extra benefits offered by restaurants and eateries near you.

Take that apathetic voter forthwith to the nearest voting booth! There are 90 million eligible voters who won't vote because they can't be bothered. Ninety million people who will choose to stay home, even after all this nation has been through, and all this president has done.
November 6 is about more than one candidate or one ballot measure or even one outcome. It's about every eligible citizen taking responsibility for the power they've been given and using it. It's about making our voices heard. It's about more than ourselves.
