It’s finally Election day. Today, we elect our next leader of this free world. God knows that I am so ready for this day to come and go. This election cycle has been very stressful. It’s brought out so much ugliness in this country. What used to seem like a peaceful process has turned into reality television. Like a cross between Game of Thrones and Real Housewives. Whoever you’re choosing to vote for, vote. Your vote speaks volumes. You care enough about your country to cast a vote in this very important election. Don’t boo, vote. Not sure what I’m talking about? Keep reading.
Earlier at this years’ Democratic National Convention, President Obama delivered an inspiring speech. In it, he mentioned Donald Trump’s name. The crowd started to boo, but then he stated so eloquently…Don’t boo, vote. He’s right. The most powerful voice in this election is ours; we the people. Regardless of who you are voting for, make sure you use your voice and vote.
Democracy is not just the right to vote, it is the right to live in dignity. ~ Naomi Klein
We live in the greatest and most powerful country in the world. We have the right to vote. It’s part of our constitution. However, I’ve heard some people say that they will not vote in this election. Whaaaaaattttt????? Are you serious right now? They don’t want to vote for either candidate. Okay, I get that and respect the decision. However, you still have a voice; use it. Don’t waste your vote. Use the write-in portion if necessary, but don’t walk away from the responsibility of voting. You’re taking that “right” to vote for granted.
There are people in our country that wish they could vote. For whatever their reasons are, these individuals cannot. They wish that they could be part of our election process. This election is so important that I can’t understand why anyone wouldn’t want to vote.
Every election is determined by the people who show up. ~ Larry J. Sabato,
Tomorrow we will have a new leader. Whatever the decision turns out to be, we must accept it. The world is looking at us and how we are handling this election. It’s too bad that we’re seen as laughing stocks to some countries. Consider taking the time to vote tomorrow if you are still wondering if you should. It’s your right. Should you decide not to vote tomorrow, your right to gripe is invalid too.
So, with all that said, don’t boo, vote.
Until Next Time….
