I’m not one to rant about trivial things, therefore election day is not a piece of fluff decorating the cake of democracy. The right to vote was one of the fundamental virtues this country was first empowered with. “Taxation without representation” was what the first patriots fought against. It’s easy to get caught up in the hype and propaganda, or the insults and the bad behavior. That’s NOT what I’m talking about. Wars have been fought, millions of people have died, lives have been proudly given for the dream of democracy. The fragile idea that began our origins has blossomed into the most powerful country in the world. Today, make the Continental Congress delegates proud, let them know that democracy’s blood flows strong within America’s veins even after 236 years. Exercise the right given to you by God and not by any government. Make your voice heard today. Vote!
