In America, it’s Super Tuesday! Most people have no idea what that means. As an avid political watcher, Super Tuesday is where 1/5th of the states hold their Presidential Nominating Contests. So, politically, today is a big deal.
As always, remember to register, and to vote! 🙂

Andy was sent this website and as he knows that I’m fascinated by all things political he sent it on to me. 🙂 It’s not surprising to me that I ended up on Team Huntsman.

Finally. I’m done with all my classes for the term. This makes me happy.
While I would love to rant and rave on and on about how fantastic I was. I really don’t have the energy and I’m really just glad this term is over. Hopefully I can relax for the next two weeks, before we start all over again.
For those who have been riveted. I wanted to put up my final speech. I know my final grade already and I’m pleased with the outcome.
The beginning of the speech, for the first minute, I showed the following clip, feel free to watch it before the speech.
And without further ado?
My final speech, a persuasive on why voting is important.
