Election Time

We have elcetions coming up next week. This is an opportinuity for us to participate in our own governance. A privilige that not everyone has. I know that in recent times(the last 10 years especially)it may feel like there is no point in voting. That it doesn't matter, nothing will change if I vote or not. It is very esay to get discouraged when it seems like you are only choosing between the lesser of two evils. But we still need to do it. If you don't use your muscles, they can atrophy and become useless. So it can with voting. It could even be taken away. If we don't exercise our right to vote, our leaders could be chosen by committee or by the government itself with no oversite, no discussion, with a complete disregard of the will of the people. If we don't use this privilage, then why di dour forefathers fight the revolution? Why did all of those American servicemen storm the beaches of Normady?

No matter which way you lean, republican or democrat, rmemeber to vote on Tuesday, November 2nd!
