I’m not going to hit you over the head with political spiels. That’s for another blog. But I am going to say vote if you haven’t already. This is the one way–the only way–to insure your voice has been heard. If you are eligible to vote and you don’t, then don’t bitch and moan over the next four years because things didn’t go the way you wanted. If you did or will vote, then make sure you don’t do anything to invalidate your vote.
Our Republic is founded on the idea that we, the People, get the final say in who sits in government. But over the years, it has been the few deciding for the many. Too many people stay home and think their vote won’t count. That is a trap. Don’t fall for it.
Thank whatever diety you look to that we live in a country where we can still vote and have a say on what our government does. Look at the canidates and the issues. Which ones are for continuing our freedoms with the least amount of government interference? Which ones are more determined to work for your best interests and the best interests of their constituency and which ones are more interested in building a power base?
Get up tomorrow and go to the polls if you haven’t already voted. Vote your conscience, vote your principles and vote for the candidates who will be best for this country, not just in the short term but in the long.
