ELECTION DAY

TL 11-4 ELECTION DAY

 

YOU CAN'T COMPLAIN IF YOU DON'T VOTE

Bad officials are elected by good citizens who do not vote.   – George Jean Nathan

Everyone in my realm of influence (it’s a small circle, believe me) seems to think their vote will not count, so they have decided not to go to the polls at all today.  All of these good people happen to be women.  Immediately I think, “So the women’s suffrage movement of the past were in vain?”

I, as a woman, will not take my right to vote in the United States for granted.  What if women had not gotten the right to vote?  No, it’s my right to vote – and I will continue to vote as long as I live.  I encourage you to do the same.

There are always too many Democratic congressmen, too many Republican congressmen, and never enough U.S. congressmen.   – Author Unknown

Today’s post is not about Republican or Democrat – it’s about freedom and exercising your basic right to vote.  Sometimes we take the freedom we have for granted – we’ve all done it.  But today is the day to wake up and realize that the rights we have today could be taken away if we don’t exercise them.  It’s a lot like muscle mass – if we don’t use those free weights on a regular basis, we can become flabby and weak.

 People often say that, in a democracy, decisions are made by a majority of the people.  Of course, that is not true.  Decisions are made by a majority of those who make themselves heard and who vote – a very different thing.   – Walter H. Judd

Here in Kansas we have a very interesting Senate race and if for no other reason, show up to vote for our next Senator.  That one will be a real dandy!

You KNOW how I like cakewrecks.com and this one just cracked me up!
