Hello you, just came to tell you what happened during the past couple days. I took a health test yesterday. I know I did great on that. Today I took a mini quiz for History and a Sociology test today. I passed the history quiz, but the Sociology, I found it very difficult. Right after I was done taking the test, I got a headache. Even up until now, I still have it. So many terms, so many definitions. Hope I did good on it.
OmG, I'm currently watching the debete, and it's putting me to sleep. I would really like Obama to win. Why? First of all. When McCain is talking, just listen to him real carefully. He sounds like Bush. And his policies reminds me of Bush. America has been under Republican rule for 8 years. Let me reapeat myself. AMERICA HAS BEEN UNDER REPUBLICAN'S RULE FOR 8 YEARS!! I believe it's time for a change. Look what happened between those 8 years. War, recession, tax hike, and so on. The only reason Bush won his second term was because he had a brother in Florida and they were involved in caging. What is caging exactly?

From the article (link below) in St. Pete Times: "The first-class GOP mailing has a "Do not forward" instruction on the envelope, meaning they will be returned to the GOP if a recipient has had mail forwarded, perhaps to a summer address, or has moved."Letters returned as undeliverable can be compiled into "challenge lists" of unverifiable addresses and can be used to challenge voters' eligibility during early voting or on Election Day. The vote suppression technique is known as "vote caging."
Who is behind it?
Florida GOP
