So here we are, heading into another Presidential election.
I've said it before, and I'll say it again: I don't care who you vote for, but please go Vote. I know who I'm going to vote for and I know WHY I'm going to vote the way I am, too. I'm very solidly founded on those facts that form my opinion. I strongly suggest you be solidly founded on facts, too!
As for the rest, it's irrelevant. I have had people attack me about political views they believe I'm holding when, in fact, that's not at all what I believe. That's ok. That's their mistake. They didn't know that wasn't the case. But I have to wonder how people come up with outlandish ideas about what they think other people believe...
And it should be done away with. Because it's usually rooted in things that are not facts.
But voting is a right and a duty for Americans. And I'm a firm believer in the research done that shows that a higher rate of voter participation gives better election results. So, I'm going to encourage folks, even if you have never voted before as an adult eighteen years of age or older, go ahead and go vote. We all pitch in and do our part, and that gives us an accurate result.
See you at the polls, in person.
