After months… nay, years of campaigning and non-stop ads and placards, the day has finally arrived… Election Day! I don’t give a crap who you vote for (that’s not completely true… but… you know), I don’t care to hear any excuses why you can’t or won’t vote… people have died and will continue to die in order to have the right to vote for their leaders and laws, don’t squander your right!
Do you want to bitch about the next two or four years? Vote!
Do you want to be part of your community and a member of society? Vote!
Do you care abut the people in your life… people like your grandparents, parents, children, and spouses? Elections matter… Vote,dammit!
The only caveat I may have for this admonition… if you are still undecided in the presidential election, or if you don’t understand the propositions and measures up for vote today… perhaps you shouldn’t vote… and perhaps you need to actually read sometime, because you folks boggle my mind. Apathy is not a road to a better citizenry, it’s a road to idiocy… don’t take that road… and chances are, if you are reading this, you aren’t apathetic.
That said… do your duty… vote today!
