Get Your Vote On!

November 6, 2012 at 11:40 am (Day to Day) (, , , , , )

It’s election day! GO VOTE! If you don’t, you have no good ground to stand on when getting into political arguments with all of your friends. Whatever your beliefs may be, if you don’t take the opportunity given to voice that opinion, then you do not have the moral right to bitch about the system and how this country is run. Sorry, but this is your chance to have your vote counted. And don’t give me the argument that it doesn’t matter either way, or one vote can’t make a difference, so that’s why you don’t even bother. It’s a flawed world with an imperfect government and no one will ever be happy 100%, but that’s the beauty of America. You have the unalienable right to pretty much do and think whatever you want, but you have to flex that muscle when the heavy lifting presents itself. Every person matters! If you want to make the big changes, you have to start small. Think globally, act locally. Success works it’s way up to the top, not the other way around. Is that enough poster-board rhetoric for today?  Besides, voting is super easy and quick if you use the paper ballot. Pick up that black felty marker and connect your lines for the future. I was number 92 today at 8 am. I wish I was a higher number but at least I was counted.

So that concludes today’s post and the lecture on freedom and democracy. Just do it! (Ha. One more line.) In honor of government and election day, and to all the high schoolers that have or will be, taking that dreaded Constitution test to move on to the next level of education,  I would like to end this post with my favorite School House Rock tribute to: The Preamble. You know you have to memorize it right? How many of us sat in those little one armed desks singing this song to ourselves to remember the words?

Anyway…one more time for the cheap seats in the back…GO VOTE!!!
