I finally received my absentee ballot in the mail today. Given the small window I now have for submitting it, I had little choice but to fill it out almost immediately and get it back in the postal system. Regular readers of this blog are already familiar — painfully so — with my angst over whom to choose for Executive. After class, I rushed back to the barracks, changed clothes (my daily uniform is not one that can be worn off-base), and quickly ended my indecision. I sat at my desk, looked my God in the eye, and silently asked for guidance.

My choice in an upcoming article to be published after the Election.

    Does your priest know you wrote him in? *wink*

  2. pete Says:

    heh. (in reference to Karl’s comment.)

    I’m going to guess you voted for Bush, being a military person. Anyone interested in starting a pool on who Basil voted for?

  3. Erich Says:

    I’m up for it. I would guess Bush as well though. Too many influences pushing in that direction — abortion issue, being in the military, republican “brainwashing” of his childhood. I put my money on Bush.

  4. basil Says:

    This is going to be a blast. Keep those guesses coming. Karl, do I take that as a guess? So far, I’ve got two on “He picked Bush.” Any other takers?

  5. James Says:

    Basil voted for Bush! I mean, c’mon already. LOL!

  6. basil Says:

    So, current count is:
    Bush, 3
    Others, 0

  7. Karl Thienes Says:

    Honestly, it wouldn’t surprise me if you wrote in your priest!

    Taking into account everything you’ve written the last several months, I’d have to guess Kerry.
    Then again, you might have been playing devil’s advocate trying to make sure that your choice to go with Bush was analyzed from every angle.

    So….hmmm. I suppose I’ll go with Bush as well. But I have a feeling there is a surprise in store…

    I would say the LP candidate Michael Badnarik, that party lines up the most with Basil’s views on givernment. And I know he is just enough of an anarchist to do it.

  9. Tabitha Says:

    I’m afraid I’m going to have to go with an apophatic guess. I would say, not Kerry. But that’s really just a hunch because of that recent “man of all positions” link! I am sorry to say that, even this close to the election, I still have not researched the independent candidates. I don’t even know who they are.

  10. basil Says:

    So, the count is now:
    Bush 4
    Not Kerry 1
    Badnarik 1

    Petroukas…or however you spell it.

    Bush 4
    Not Kerry 1
