I wanted to write something on The Vote - but I wasn't sure what.
And I wanted what I write about The Vote - to be intrinsically
mine - without rambling on and getting incoherent.
But darn it - if what I suspect is true - that no one reads my
blog anyway - what's the difference if I do ramble on - and get
So I said to myself, 'stidh - ramble away.'
I Believe that The Right to Vote is a Sacred Thing - especially
when ya consider that not everyone has always been able to do it.
Why even right here in this Great Country of Ours - there were
actually times when the only People who could Vote were white Men.
Well that doesn't seem Right - does it?
And even then - when Other folks were allowed to Vote - certain
restrictions were placed on that Vote - such as things that made
it HARD for them to Vote - oh you know what I mean.
And Women - they weren't even allowed to Vote - for a long time.
Why is that - do ya think? Aren't Women People too?
But now - folks - everyone can Vote - as it should be.
So what we're left with are two things:
Whether or not People actually get out and Vote
Now the first thing - is more ambiguous - but we can talk about it.
The second thing - can also be ambiguous - and things are being
done to correct Voter Fraud - and that is Good. Because Voter Fraud
is - in my opinion - pretty bad. Ya have to be a low life to be a
part of Voter Fraud. That is plain and simple. There should be a
nationwide crackdown on Voter Fraud. These People should be dealt
with harshly - AND THE SOONER THE BETTER. Kind of like how we should
deal with the problem of bullying. Harshly - and the sooner the better.
But about People who don't get out and Vote - well that 's a horse of
a different color - because there are those who would say that IT IS
THEIR RIGHT TO CHOOSE NOT TO VOTE. And ya know what - folks? They are
right. I know that - and you know that - and I know you know that.
Because since we live in a Country where we can choose our own Leaders -
that is our Right - we also live in a Country where we can CHOOSE
WHETHER WE WANT TO CHOOSE OUR OWN LEADERS. It's called Freedom of
Choice. And while I Believe that Every Person In This Country Who
Meets The Qualifications To Vote should Vote - I would be Willing To
March Into H*ll & Die for the Right of anyone to exercise this Right
Not To Vote - BECAUSE HERE IN THIS REALLY GREAT COUNTRY OF OURS - that
right of choice is called:
F R E E D O M
William Wallace knew the meaining of that Word - and we must protect
that Word - and make sure we never give it up.
But back to the Vote - I Believe that there is only one sure way to
convince People that they should get out and Vote in November. And
that is through the process of Educating them - on how important it
is to do just that.
Sure - it is not a quick or easy process. But the important thing is -
is that we try.
And ya can't do much more than that - folks.
