The Importance of Voting

I found this today and just had to repost it here. In small town America, the local restaurants are meeting places for people to get together and discuss things with friends and acquaintances. Actually, most of these places have groups of people who come in and just sit and drink coffee in the mornings. I don’t know how many times I have sat in on some of these brain trusts and listened to them solve the world’s problems right at that dining table. You can hear ranting and raving about how bad the problems are in this country and what we need to do to solve those problems. After the speaker finishes his rant it is very informative to ask “Who did you vote for last time?” Many times you will hear “Ah, I didn’t vote, they are all the same, just a bunch of crooks.” Well, You’re right. If you don’t vote, all you get are a bunch of crooks. Most of those people sitting at that table think very similar to the way I think. If they would get out and actually vote, we could take over and control this government again instead of the government controlling us! And, if all of us voted, we might get some better candidates running for office. Many people who think like me are discouraged from running because they don’t think they have a chance of winning because people who think like us don’t bother to vote. If you don’t vote, you deserve what you get! Come on America, take back control of your lives. Election day is November 6, 2012, go out and vote!

    i grew up among communities of people who took great pride in having and exercising their right to vote. i was taught in school that it was one of my civic duties to vote. and i was one of the first to get to vote upon reaching the age of 18 and still have my letter from the governor of missouri congratulating me for graduating high school and encouraging me to vote. i have known women who remember when they finally got the right to vote. at least when we cast a vote there is a chance that who or what we are voting for will get elected. i find it difficult to understand why we have anyone against the voter photo i.d…..everyday we find ourselves having to have or show i.d. for one reason or another and i just do not understand what the beef is against it, and i am just not buying into the excuses given by by those who are against it.

      Caryn, of course, anybody with a lick of sense sees nothing wrong with requireing a photo ID to vote. The only people who oppose that are people who are in favor of voter fraud, and we know who they are, don’t we?
