I'm so glad the election process is over. For some reason, it just seemed to go on and on and on. Maybe it was all of the negative ads, maybe they started campaigning earlier, or there was just more coverage on TV. Regardless of who you voted for, I just pray that the country comes together to balance the budget, there are more jobs made available to reduce the unemployment rate, and everyone receives the health care they so deserve in this country.
Mother-2-Mother discovered a few celebrities who casted their vote. It seems that Usher caused an uproar with voters in Roswell, GA. Apparently, he was ushered to the front of the line and that irritated voters. Senior citizens and women with young children should be ushered to the front of the line in my opinion, but I saw many seniors and women with children standing in lines on major TV stations. I guess he never heard of the Absentee Ballot, which is what most celebrities use to avoid standing in a line and causing a distraction. They don't look for special treatment.
I also saw celebrities just behaving badly. Mainly Donald Trump. Regardless of your feelings toward the winner or loser of this Presidential Election, inciting revolutions, calling our election process unjust, and just being downright disrepectful was so uncalled for. I wonder just how proud his wife and children were of him.
Here are a few celebrities who cast their vote and proudly let their followers know via Twitter they voted and encouraged them to cast their vote too :
Mother-2-Mother doesn't get political, but I am proud to be an American and I am thankful that I am allowed to vote for the candidate of my choosing win or lose. From the words of our President Elect, "We will forever be the United States of America". Should celebrities be allowed to move ahead of hundred of people who have stood in line for hours to cast their vote? Why should they be given such a privilege? Let me know what you think.
