A lot of brave men and women died providing you the right to vote. Others went to their graves defending it. Honor their memory by investing a few minutes of your time today and keep America strong by making your voice heard.

I am not qualified to dispense political advice, but there are some fine folks at the NRA who are. Here’s a direct link to the NRA Political Fund Victory guide, where you will find the right candidates and even where to vote.

It’s fun, anyway, if you allow it to be. For example, I voted early and made an awesome discovery. County coroner is an elected position. Who knew? It has to be the ultimate political job, anywhere, anytime. The clientele never complains, and about the only paperwork you’re required to complete is changing the voter profile for the deceased from conservative to liberal. In addition, whoever holds the position never has to endure those lengthy, political-rally handshaking sessions—shaking the hand of the coroner isn’t on a lot of bucket lists, if you know what I mean.

The odds are good, too, the lines will not be long. According to this article, the dead-voter bloc has discovered the ease of absentee voting.

All kidding aside, some critical gun-rights battles will be decided at the polls today. Get out and vote.
