Some Don't Care and Won't Vote! Some Care and Can't Vote!
If you don't care about the economy, education, the War in Iraq, or any of the multitude of issues affecting Americans, then don't Vote!
Many Americans, including myself will be voting on Nov 4th. I for one, am f*#%ing totally excited that my guy is ahead, way ahead, just take a look at the polls. Yet, despite the fact that my candidate is ahead, I'm still nervous about the next three weeks. Mostly, I worry about how Whites in the Mid-West and Southern parts of our Nation will vote. Can many of those Whites, get themselves to for a Black man as the next President of The United States of America? The question is valid and it remains to be answered on Nov 4th.
The historic moment is almost here and I'm grateful to be alive and able to participate.
Whenever, I'm in public I talk about the elections and ask how people plan to vote. It's surprising how many people I run into who don't plan to vote. Some are apathetic and believe their vote won't count. Some are not not registered and I'll try to point them in the right direction and ask that they register and vote.
Granted some people just can't vote, they can't vote because they are legal residents and not yet Citizens. Undocumented immigrants, the 12 Million or so no living in the U.S. can't vote, their fate hangs in the balance. Their fate is yet to be decided by Congress and us who can vote which will ultimately sway public opinion about their fate. So, those undocumented immigrants silently and hope that someone will speak (vote) in their favor and allow them to remain in this country.
If you are a Citizens and are registered to Vote, then it's both a right and your duty to participate in these historic elections.
See you at the Voting Booths! I'm voting for Obama.
