This Business of Voting

“The chief business of the American people is business.”

-President John Calvin Coolidge, Jr.
(July 4, 1872 – January 5, 1933)
30th President of the United States

While neither man is “my guy,” I think perhaps we should let the candidate who is the businessman have a crack at the economy.

(Hint: Only one of them has ever been involved with business at all).

UPDATE 4:42PM EST: My dear friend, Nathan Reimer, posted this presidential quote in the comments section below. I thought it was so good that it deserved a presence in the main post.

“I never considered a difference of opinion in politics, in religion, in philosophy, as cause for withdrawing from a friend.”

-President Thomas Jefferson
(April 13, 1743 (April 2, 1743 O.S.) – July 4, 1826)
3rd President of the United States

ch:

  • I posted this earlier on facebook. It’s such a great quote by Thomas Jefferson.

    “I never considered a difference of opinion in politics, in religion, in philosophy, as cause for withdrawing from a friend.”

    • Man, such a great line! I’m going to add this to the post body.

    • Jason Clement

      OMG!!! YOU LIKE THOMAS JEFFERSON!!! Where’s the “unfriend” button…

    • lol

  • Yep, voted for ole Romney meself. I hate to be so narrow-minded, but I just cannot vote for a proChoice candidate. If there’s even a chance that Roe v. Wade gets overturned, I gotta put my vote there. Wait a sec, I don’t actually mind being narrow minded. Kind of like it actually.
