Well. It’s that old first Tuesday after the first Monday of November. In the ol’ United States of America that can mean only one thing. Politicians are scrambling to get you to push a button with their name on it.
Whether you count yourself a Democrat, Republic, Moderate or even a member of the Rent is too Damn High party (yes, it is real), many consider it your civil obligation to go out and push a button. Maybe even 2. The point of the matter is no matter your leanings, short of running for office, it is the easiest and best way to make your voice heard. Before 2008, my voice went unheard as an apathetic youth voter. Say what you will about our current President, but at least he got me off my butt and out to the polls along with a strong number of youths disillusioned with the current nature of politics in this country. I vote now, and shall continue to vote. I urge you to do the same.
