If You Don’t Vote….

September 12, 2012

I recently read a quote by our President, Barack Obama.  I like the thought, but I reworked it a little for my own purposes.  I will include both of them for your reading – his first.

Why Barack Obama wants you to vote

“If you give up the idea that your voice can make a difference, then other folks are going to fill the void – the lobbyists, the special interests, the people who are writing $10 million checks, the folks who are trying to keep people from voting, the politicians who want to tell you who you can marry, tell women they can’t have control over their own health care choices.  Only you can make sure that doesn’t happen.”

Why I think you should vote

“If you give up the idea that your voice can make a difference, then other folks are going to fill the void – the lobbyists, the vocal minority interests, the out-of-touch Hollywood actors writing $10 million checks, the folks who are trying to keep our military from voting, the politicians who want to tell that you can’t openly believe in God, the politicians who openly support the mass murder of unborn children.  Only you can make sure that doesn’t happen.”

If you don’t speak up, someone else WILL speak for you.
