(Newser) – A man who nearly died while casting his ballot Monday had only one concern upon being revived: "Did I vote?" A nearby nurse rushed to the elderly man's aid when he stopped breathing at a township office in southern Michigan, reports the Detroit News. After CPR, he came around, managed to take a few breaths, and asked his bewildered wife only about his vote. "She told him, 'Your life is my concern,'" said the nurse. His reply: Only two things matter, "that I love you and that I finished what I came here to do … vote." The man had, in fact, voted—and was taken to a hospital for testing. (Compare that to the woman in labor who preferred voting over going to a hospital.)

He could be dead 200 years in Chicago, and his Democrat vote would still count. ------- REALLY
