VOTE!, VOTE!, VOTE!

Democracy is based on the idea that the people who are covered by this form of government will have an equal say in who the people that govern them will be. If you don’t vote, then the democracy will stop working and eventually fail. If the people, in general, don’t vote, then who will determine who will make the decisions.

Also if the people making decisions about who will run the government don’t have their own independent ideas about this and are not well-informed about the issues being considered then they will be easily led by people who want to run the government and who essentially don’t believe in a democracy. Then the government might eventually become a dictatorship so if you don’t register to vote and exercise your right to vote and do so judiciously by being well informed about the candidates and the issues, this can happen.

If you remember, there was a post written here about “The Little PEOPLE” previously and the former presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton, used the term, deplorables (oops I initially thought it was the despicables, in one of her speeches referring to the people who supported the opposing candidate. She sort of stuck her foot in her mouth didn’t she?

Now I am asking you to consider the opposing candidates running in your state for various offices. Do they take your vote for granted? or do they think that you might change your vote to vote for them if they would put you down if you voted for the opposing candidate or candidates?

VOTE, VOTE, VOTE! Although it will be a little awkward for me because of my handicaps. I will also get myself there. If you can, take someone with you. Don’t let a friend or neighbor have an excuse for not voting. Also if you can. help a friend or neighbor register to vote if they haven’t.

This is a very crucial election. Think about what the Democrats might do if they get a majority in the House or Senate and think about as well what the Republicans might do if they get a majority in the House or Senate.

Consider the source of your information. Most major news stations take a standard Democratic line and to hear the reverse you have to listen to Fox news stations. Few newspapers give anything but the standard Democratic line. Sometimes I feel that Obama has never left office in the Democrats’ minds. Also, I think that Trump is still campaigning to stay in office. Why don’t you consider both sides?

Finally, I am considering voting for neither the Democratic or the Republican candidate for governor in my state. I kinda think that both are well acquainted with the swamp. They might be very surprised on election day if an independent candidate made a large showing. Also, one slot for state representative on the Republican side was filled by had a newcomer who won the primary.
