    Do you think your vote matters?

    Lately have heard many people say they did not vote in the last election because their vote would not have made a difference. Or their views were not represented in any of the candidates. My question is do others feel the same? Did you look at the two choices (ok there was more than two but let’s be realistic) and could not decide which was the lesser of the two evils?

    It is frustrating to know that we are not voting for someone right, but voting for someone who is not quite as wrong...

    My vote, in Texas, likely did not count in the big picture but I voted because I have the right to vote.  If one does not exercise their rights--whether it is voting or keeping a gun, or having an opinion opposite to others--it is easier to take it away.

    I voted for the lesser of 2 evils, but I also voted for people who would make changes--and they are.  To not vote is to allow those you totally agree with to get the upper hand.
