I don’t wax on politics as much as I used too.
But the power of voting can not be understated.
One thing I absolutely despise is apathy. Tell me you don’t like the choices. Tell me you don’t feel they represent you, just don’t tell me that you are not going to use the blood paid right that hundreds of thousands of people from the Revolutionary War to present day died to give you.
Back in 2004 I wrote that voting is effectively making a choice as to the type of world you want you and your children to live in.
We, as a race see many things in our life that our children will never see. But in their time we must remember that they too, will see changes.
What those changes are, will be decided not only by our actions, but by our stances we choose, and the votes we place on our elected officials in November.
It is easy to cast responsibility to someone else. To say it is up to our government. It is up to our leaders. it is up to our neighbors. It is not my job.
We delude ourselves with that thought.
I don’t care who you vote for. I just care that you go vote. Make a legitimate decision regarding your life.
Instead of approaching it as “If it happens it happens” impose your will on your own destiny.
But don’t sit on the sidelines. Don’t be apathetic.
