Time to Make a Difference

05 Nov

Tomorrow, millions of Americans will go to the polls to vote for their candidates of choice… and if you’re not of a mind to vote, well, maybe you should give some serious thought about doing it.  I’ve often found it interesting that the people who do the most complaining about politicians are the people who never vote, who do not believe that their one, single vote can make a difference.

Whether your candidate of choice wins or loses, your vote does matter; either way, you have had your say in things and, to me, that’s always been an important part of being an American.

While a lot of the focus this election year has been about who gets to sit in the big chair in DC, it’s important to remember that a lot of the decisions that might affect your life are not made in Washington – they’re made right where you live.  Governors and mayors, along with state and local legislatures, have great impact on your life; they determine what state/local services will be available, what roads and other infrastructure gets repaired or built and, importantly, how hard you’re gonna get hit with taxation (depending on where you live) so it’s important to choose those people running for office at the state and local levels with as much care and conscience as you’d vote for a Senator, Congressman, or even President.

Do your civic duty and invoke your right to vote!

    This will be my third presidential election. I voted Democratic in my first two. Tomorrow, I’m voting for neither of the big parties, and I couldn’t feel happier or prouder about it.

    I don’t think there’s much of a difference between either candidate this time around, and I want a third option. People keep asking me why I’m voting for someone else, and they keep reminding me that my candidate won’t win. While I completely understand that, I think that if more people chose to opt out of the corrupted two-party system we’d see actual change.

    At least, that’s my hope. I think I’m too optimistic.

      The whole point is to get out there tomorrow and vote your conscience – then cross your fingers. I forget where I heard it but someone said, “If you don’t vote, you don’t matter.” I’m doing the math in my head; I registered to vote when I was 18 and I’m 57 now – a year short of 40 years ago, which equates to ten presidential elections – wow, that many? I have never failed to vote and to vote my conscience. I’ve voted for Democrats for some offices, Republicans for others – even a few Independents I knew didn’t stand a chance of winning… but, again, that’s not the point, is it?

      I am an American. I have the right to vote. And I will vote!
