What can I say, I am a fan of R. Lee Ermey. I believe that people should exercise their right to vote, and I enjoy my rights as a US citizen (1st and 2nd amendment rights being at the top of my favorites, followed by the 9th). Now the NRA has brought all of these things together in a new effort called Trigger the Vote.
The premise of the site is simple, if you want your voice heard in government you have to vote. It doesn’t really matter what you believe in, or what party you belong to; voting is a good idea and registering is a necessary step in that process. If you want to keep your rights, protect them by voting.
If you haven’t been getting enough of the Gunny since Mail Call was canceled, check out the link above. It’s not a Full Metal Jacket tirade, but I never get tired of watching my favorite drill sergeant tear into someone. If you haven’t registered to vote, take a few minutes to square that away at the site as well.
