Come on people, Vote!

I know, I know, you're getting it from all angles. If you turn on the tv you are blasted with it. Head out of your house and your neighbors have the signs in the yard. The bumper stickers, billboards, buttons, radio ads - the message is everywhere - Vote! And here I am adding to the onslaught of it all. Well, it's because it's crazy important. Okay, so not only is it important, but it's super cool too if you think about it. If you are old enough you get a say so in who the next LEADER OF THE NATION is. That's huge! HUGE! So many of us have become so complacent. We seem to have forgotten that not even that long ago women couldn't vote! If you were black, you couldn't vote! Only white men could vote - how insane is that? Now, we can all cast our ballot. I never want to forget all of the people before me who fought for my rights. The best way we can honor those people is to take advantage of the rights they fought for. So vote. Vote. Educate yourself and vote. If you are sick of all the news shows and the commercials and don't know who to believe, visit this web site It's great. It will ask you a bunch of questions and show you which candidate shares your views. It's cool and pretty fun and interesting even if you already know who you are voting for. Now don't forget to vote! :)
