Today is the second tuesday in November which is general election day across the USA. Some places are electing mayors, governors, etc.... while others have no offices up for election at this time. BUT..... in one year we will elect a new President.
I'm not here to lobby for one party or one candidate. I am here to lobby against apathy. I'm sure there are many who do not know, or do not care what apathy is....
Ok seriously..... voter turnout seems to get smaller and smaller each year. Too many people believe their vote does not count. And, if they don't vote, they are exactly right. Your vote only counts IF you use it. Not happy with someone in office? Vote against them. Like what one particular candidate has to say? Support them.
IF someone posts a blog on illegal immigrants, the war, welfare.... take your pick.... it generates a lot of heated comments. People care. Until election day and then they can't be bothered to drive a few minutes out of their way to cast their ballot. Assuming they are even registered.
There are many countries around the world where people have NO choice in who runs their country. To speak out means death! Some emerging countries started having elections over the past 20 years and you will read where people will WALK dozens of miles or more to cast that precious vote. They know that if THEY don't decide who they want, someone else will decide for them.
Be aware, be informed..... be a voter.
