The Republicans are afraid of me.

I registered to vote during my senior year of high school.

I cast my first vote when I was 17 in the June 2009 Virginia Democratic Primary.

I voted when I was 18 in the November 2009 VA General Election.

We moved to North Carolina in 2010, and I was able to register as a Democrat.

I voted when I was 19 in the November 2010 Midterms.

I'm going to vote when I'm 20 in the 2012 Primaries.

I'm going to vote when I'm 21 in the 2012 Elections.

I'm going to keep voting. Again, and again, and again, and again.

And I know with every stroke of my pen, every press of my finger, every pull of the lever, every twist of the knob, and every little tick mark I make, it eats away at every GOP soul to know that I'm voting.

They can try all they want, but they can't take that away from me. They'll use every trick in the book, every loophole they can find, every little dirty nasty thing they can come up with, but it won't work.

I'm going to keep voting.

They're afraid of me. They're afraid of my vote. And they're afraid that there are millions more like me.

As well they should be. :)

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
