Good one Penny!
There was an interview with a reporter and a politician on the news one night here in CA. Voter turnout was the lowest in history on voting day. The reporter said to the politician,”Why do you think voter turnout is so poor? Is it ignorance or is it apathy?” The politician replied, with the truest words from a politicians mouth I have ever heard, about the general sentiment of those who do not vote. He said, “I don’t know and I don’t care!” Yup, that sums it up!
Don’t be ignorant to the fact that your single vote could be the one that makes the difference! And do not be apathetic either! Get out and vote!
Well Barb, I don’t think it went quite the way I had hoped it would go. I stay hopeful that our government will get a few more positive things accomplished, though. It would be nice if those who “represent” us. actually represented us!
I used to be the one who thought voting was too much of an inconvenience and that it wouldn’t count anyway. But that changed in 1992, when I finally registered to vote for the first time in my life. I’ve been voting ever since. Some people don’t seem to realize how crucial voting is to a fully functioning democracy. More importantly, they don’t understand the battles many of our ancestors waged to secure that right. It’s been less than a hundred years since women got the right to vote in the U.S. and only half a century since all restrictions, such as the poll tax, were eliminated.
Thanks Alejandro. Some great words you’ve written. I am very disappointed in yesterdays outcome. It will be an interesting couple of years, sigh!
