Time to Vote

Today is midterm elections. And midterm elections have low turnouts. I know a lot of people don't feel these elections are important since we're not voting for a president.

I beg to differ. The president doesn't make the laws. Our representatives do. I don't care if you're conservative, liberal, Republican, Democrat, Tea Party, Green Party, male, female, young or old. Just go vote!

To NOT vote is a slap in the face to the men and women who fought and died to create this great nation and to those who have fought since to preserve our freedoms. People actually laid their lives down so we can vote for those who represent us. Why then do we dishonor them by not educating ourselves on the issues and choosing a candidate who best represents our views? How many millions of people in this world would love to have this opportunity that we take for granted?

So take the time today to vote. Honor the past. Impact the future.
