Happy Election Day! And it couldn’t come soon enough. I’m sick of the wasted paper flyers in my mailbox that ask me to vote for a candidate that isn’t even in my district… sick of the robo-callers… or the real ones that won’t leave you alone… and also sick of my Facebook wall becoming a battleground for my liberal and conservative friends.
However, I sincerely hope that people get off their asses and make their voices heard. Granted I live in a pre-destined “blue state,” there are still plenty of other issues, besides the Presidency, that should motivate people to go to the polls. And of course, there are your local, state senate and representatives to vote for. In Cali, we’re voting on everything from education, to labeling GMOs, to the death penalty. It’s a bit deal!
Apathy solves nothing. If you choose not to exercise your right, then you have no right to complain if you don’t agree with the outcomes.
And may the odds be ever in your favor!
