Can you vote? Are you willing to let others speak for you? Are you part of a self-fulfilling prophecy?
You may think that your voice or vote doesn't count for much. You may think that our politicians don't care about you and your concerns. Well, if you aren't voting, why should they?
If you pay taxes, you should be voting. If you use our streets and highways, you should be voting. If you want to be protected by our police and military, you should be voting. If you want to provide a safety net for all the disadvantaged in our society, you should be voting. If you want persons to be treated fairly under the law regardless of gender, socio-economic status, race, religion, or sexual-orientation, you should be voting.
