To vote or not to vote...that is the question..

To vote or not to vote...that is the question..



The big day is here! 

We've endured a long and draining campaign season, but today that comes to an end as you cast your ballot for the next president of these here United States of America! 

Should you vote? 

Does your vote REALLY count? 

I'm inclined to say yes...for a number of reasons. I'd like to encourage you to vote with the candidate that champions the issues that you care about most. I'd encourage you to vote for inclusion and not divisiveness. I'd like to encourage you to make your voice heard....but most of all I'd like to encourage you to vote with your conscious. 

I'd encourage you to vote for the fighters before you. I'd encourage you to vote for your family after you. I'd encourage you to vote because you know someone who's not allowed to. I'd encourage you to vote for for someone who isn't here to vote...


I won't tell you who to vote for specifically, because that's something you have to decide for yourself...but I encourage you to ask yourself why loads of career politicians are crossing party lines to vote for the other side. I'd encourage you to ask yourself why none of the living former presidents are supporting a certain nominee, some going against their own party.  I'd encourage you to ask yourself do you think it wise to vote for someone who economists,military scientists, and even some of his own lawyers wouldn't vote for? I'd encourage you to ask yourself, do you want the ugly underbelly of america to reign supreme in the near future? 

With that said, I encourage you to make your voice heard on this day. I'm aware of the electoral college, but I still encourage you to do your part. Let me appeal to your logic...If your vote didn't matter would politicians cross party lines and risk career suicide? If your vote didn't matter would campaigns spend millions upon millions of dollars to influence your vote? If your vote didn't matter would there be voting suppression & intimidation? If your vote didn't matter would people have died for the right? 

 


Vote or don't...it's up to you. I won't shame you.....However, if you don't vote....certainly don't complain!

P.s. You still have time!
