My blog is not political, and I'm not going to make it political. Occasionally I will post about us watching a debate (see tomorrow's post) or some fun election t-shirt we wear, but my blog is not intended to share with you my personal political beliefs or for me to try and convince you why my candidate is the more "qualified" one.
Lately, I have heard so many people say "I'm not voting" or "This election is a joke".
While I, at times hate the political atmosphere, I think that we would do good to remember and acknowledge how very blessed we are to live in a country where democracy is a cornerstone and we are able to vote. Nothing irritates me more than people who complain all the time about how the government does nothing for them and they aren't taken care of or they "hate the current administration", but the DIDN'T BOTHER TO VOTE or even educate themselves.
Of course it would be great if one candidate could pacify all of the needs we have as a country, but I agree that people who don't vote or take the time to learn about the candidates has no right to complain or gripe when someone they didn't care for makes it into office (or a proposition is passed they didn't agree with).
You have a few days left to register, so fulfill your CIVIC RESPONSIBILITY and vote.
Hey–take your kids with you. Make it a learning tool for them. Teach them about the great country we live in.
