I wish I had something pithy and profound to post today about all the political hoopla–and I just realized I was alliterating, so we KNOW that’s not going to happen today, right?! (grin!) ANYWAY! Here’s the short version:
- live in the United States of America
- are a CITIZEN
- are a REGISTERED voter
- are alive and of sound mind (relatively–because I am aware that’s kind of subjective for some of us!)
then you need to get yourself to your local polling place and cast your VOTE TODAY!!
Responsible citizenship is work and it is worth it! WAY too many lives have been given for you to sit home and not participate in the process!
Remember: The right to go vote is a serious thing, so make sure you pray before you vote and then give thanks that you had the opportunity–there are SO many people in the world who wish they had this blessing!
And, by the way, if you choose not to cast a ballot and let your voice be heard during the election process, then you need to be prepared to live with what the “others” chose for you and you’ll really, REALLY need to keep quiet when you’re around me and something happens that you don’t like.
