"My one single vote won't matter anyway, why bother?"
"This district always goes red anyway, not worth my time."
"It's all rigged, they are all the same, what's the point?"
These sentences may seem of no consequence when you say them to yourself. But these sentences represent you AND everyone else who came to those conclusions, all of you who then ALL DON'T VOTE. That's one big voting block of people like you, who then go unrepresented. So if you don't vote because you talk yourself out of it, and neither is the entire block of people who share your mentality and logic streams...that's why the winner of every election is "did not vote" in this country, and the actual winners are left to those with vested interests. If you want the world to be a better place, you need to recognize that your perspective matters because your single actions ripple and compound and are representative of the world around you. AND we can outnumber people and entities who pay millions to manipulate the system for personal gain, but you have to start realizing you are part of a larger picture. We need YOU.
Please help put our politics back on a path of decency, sanity and love, not hate. Please use it as an excuse to leave work or take a half day.
is a thirty-something guy who hasn't been able to look away from politics since 2008. Around the time he got tired of staring at religion.
