I received my absentee ballot a couple of days ago and today I mailed it.
I vote for all of the patriotic reasons; I vote because I take personal responsibility for who is elected to office; I vote because I care about what is in our food supply; I vote because I care about our environment; I vote because I care about my neighbors; I vote because I want to continue to live in a democratic and free nation; I vote because I am privileged to be an American; I vote because I believe in the rights of the individual; I vote because MY VOTE DOES COUNT; I vote because I want elected leaders who care about the future of this earth, who care about the individual as opposed to the corporation, who hold a vision of what the United States should be. BUT MOST OF ALL I VOTED BECAUSE OF MIA. That she, her sisters and cousins and all of the children of this earth have the God given right to become the people that they were destined to become at birth.
Please vote; vote for your own reasons; vote for the candidate you feel will guide us to a strengthened relationship among nations. Stand up and be counted or forever hold your peace.
