The sixth of November is coming and American needs all of its registered voters.
Not Obama or Romney, America needs them.
America needs for her citizens to get off their collective arses and vote.
This means you….
Vote and let your voice be heard. Even if you think that both candidates suck, vote. Choose the lesser of two evils if you have, too, but vote! Your life, my life and the life of everyone in this country depends on it. We have become a nation divided and we can not stand any longer with hate following through our veins.
We have become a society where if we do not get what we want, we lose. Life is not about winning or loosing, it is about living. And many of us can not continue to live the way we have been. I work four jobs to pay my bills. Four, not out of choice, but out of necessity.
You see I was raised believing in the American Dream. I believe that if I work hard enough it will be mine. But, somehow my noble profession doesn’t pay enough for me to live on my own, pay my bills and support my family. So I work. And work and continue to work. I would apply for seasonal work at one of the local retail stores near me, but I fear that I won’t be able to handle another commitment. I am not lazy, I do not believe that society owes me. I just want to live and do what I love which is teach and write.
I don’t expect the government to take care of me. I do expect it to take care of its responsibilities.
Educating the young is among those responsibility.
Maintaining the separation between church and state is another.
Protecting the rights of the minority is yet another.
We are not a nation of victims and it is about time that we started acting in accordance. We need to stop blaming each other and work together to solve our nation’s problems.
So, vote, pretty, please and thank you,

I agree that you need to vote. So many people around the world don’t have the same right to vote. When you do you should exercise that right.
I have been begging one of my students who is nineteen to vote. We all need to do our part, but a lot of folks don’t see the relevance.
I always vote, even though I often feel it makes no difference. Maybe my vote doesn’t. But if it doesn’t, then voting doesn’t hurt me. But if it *does*? Then not voting does hurt me and others. So, I vote.
