Why Should We Vote?
Voting is not being forced upon us is it? It is not a responsibility, so why should we vote? My vote doesn't count and it won't change anything. For many years these are the things people have been thinking about and that may be the reason they do not vote.
However, here in the United States Of America, we have the power to vote. It is not just a responsibility, it is a source of power. Our politicians may think they have the power, but they are wrong. It is true, that they are the ones making the laws, deciding the rules. For one example, they decide how much a person gets taxed.
But what they need to know, is we are the ones in power. Yes we have set up tent in Wall Street. Then we were sent home with just a little tear gas, wasn't that funny? We voiced our opinions in small protests, but not much attention was paid to that.
The problem we have now is only 58% or so of the people here in the United States ever vote. And that is on an important election day. Why is that? We argue, we complain, we protest, but we don't vote. That needs to change and it needs to change now if you want your country to be a better place. Then get out and vote. Our politicians are more interested in making money for themselves, then helping you, your children, or your elderly parents.
Some people say " I cannot vote because the polls close before I get off work, or I can't drive anymore". Did you know you can vote online? Go to google and type in " where to vote online" then put in the name of your state. Then you don't have to to drive to vote, take time off from work to vote, you can even register to vote online.
Another important reason to vote is to make our politicians do the right thing. When more of us start to vote, they will begin to understand we are not children. You can find online a record of what they have done and what they have not done. Write this down, make a list. Call the person running for office. It does not matter if the person is the town mayor, or a senator, representative. You can contact them and let them know if they did not do what they said they would do. And since they did not do what they said they would do, you will vote for someone who will do the job correctly. There is an easy way to do that also. An example is to Google Rob Portman. That gives information about who he is, Issues and Legislation, Commitments, Assignments, and CONTACT. The more people who contact the better. Then the politicians will know we are paying attention to what they do and we will vote for or against them.
We have more power then they know we have, but only if we vote. Please remember " We The People Of The United States In Order To Form A More Perfect Union".......Need to vote!
