WHY VOTE?


Its hard to miss that we are coming up closer to November and once more voting is an issue. In many states (of course GOP states) voting rights have been curtailed or made harder to vote. Yet in the states with no restrictions, the turn out for primaries was quite sad and such little turnout.

 

In fact in our state where we vote by mail, it was the lowest turn out in decades- why?

If people choose to not vote in the upcoming November elections, we could see a repeat of 2010 and another wave of the tea-party fools. If that should happen, it will be horrendous for our country.

I take the time to read the bills and so am quite aware of the bills that the house has put through and so far the democrat held senate has been able to deflect those bills and protect we the people from the avarice of the GOP-gods of poverty and their allegiance only to the few elite and large corporations.

So-why vote? Vote because that is the only way we continue to have a democratic republic. It will be important this election to ensure that all you know both online and offline  are aware of the issues and aware of which candidates will govern for we the people and not govern for the corporate dollar.

 

If we want to continue to be the United States of America and not the United Corporations of America with its own American Taliban- we have to vote

 

Peace and may your voice be added to the outcry against the tyranny of a corporate owned government and be the voice needed to reclaim democracy and to silence the voice of the corporate dollar/

 

Peace and may joy, harmony and love surround you

  1. Reblogged this on Coastcontact and commented:
    It appears that many Americans have given up on the electoral system. Grid lock in Washington makes us all wonder “what’s the use?” I too am reaching that point. We just don’t have an alternate.

  2. Its sad isn’t it? One thing to remember is that its not the president with the power, but those in congress. We need to have a congress full of ‘fighters’ like Sanderson and Warren and Merkley and a very few others.
    Then we would see a government that works for we the people. Unless we vote, that will never happen
