10 Kinds of People Who I Don't Trust to Vote

Voting is kind of a big deal, so...

10 Kinds of People Who I Don't Trust to Vote
Rabbi Avi Shafran

1. People who are habitually fifteen minutes late.

I'm serious, you guys. If you don't have time management skills I just can't trust your judgment. Being late all of the time is unacceptable. You need to work on this before I give you your voting privileges back.

2. People who insist on eating outside at restaurants even though it's 100 degrees.

You are low key the worst at decision making. I can't eat when the sun is literally blistering my skin and it's too hot to breathe. I shudder to think of your rationale for picking a leader.

3. People who drive slowly in the fast lane and don't move over a lane even though I'm going faster than you.

You just need to have more respect for people. I can't trust you to pick the best person for this country if you behave like this.

4. People who think they're too cool or busy for social media.

I know you're all creeping in the shadows. I'm a busy adult, too, and it only takes three minutes to catch up on your accounts. I promise you aren't too cool for three minutes of your day. But if you think you're above it, then you must also be above voting so I'm taking that away from you.

5. People who post spoilers.

Just stop. You're ruining everyone's day. If you can't keep things to yourself, you are too much of a loose cannon and cannot take responsibility for voting.

6. People who get mad when people post spoilers.

You know it's going to happen, so stop whining. Whiners don't get to vote.

7. People who take forever to order in the drive-thru.

You have been to McDonald's at least 100 times in your life, so you should have a general idea of what you want. You're too indecisive to enter a voting precinct and the reason people are stuck in line after hours. YOU are the reason we have to wait so long to call the winner. No more!

8. People who have not seen The Lion King.

You just cannot participate in politics if you haven't watched the "Be Prepared" sequence.

9. People who insist they can't watch scary movies.

Not only do I not trust you to vote, I don't trust you to handle living in the United States. The stuff that happens here is way scarier than the stuff that happens in horror movies.

10. People who tell me that doughnuts are unhealthy.

You are the worst kind of person in the world. I KNOW, OKAY? Stop pointing it out and let me enjoy my delicious pastry. You're too annoying to be able to vote.

Obviously I'm joking. I actually want all of you to vote. It's your civic duty, so you better be out there in November!

I'm the child of a Marine Veteran. He may have been out of the service by the time I was born, but the Patriotic Pride he lived by has been my family's life line. I grew up with the American Flag hanging in my front porch. My dad has the "Proud to be a Marine" license plate in the front of his car. And red, white, and blue is a completely acceptable way to decorate your living room. But it doesn't end with just that. You need to know why we celebrate freedom.

According to Katy Perry, "Baby You're a Firework." I don't know if she was referring to the Fourth of July when she was referencing fireworks, but this song has allowed this generation to rejoice. The song "Firework" allows people of all ages to appreciate the lyrics, as the song brings forth a positive state of mind. Unfortunately, just like the song, not every knows what the Fourth of July is actually for. Many just assume it is that one time of year you get to spend time barbecuing and see fireworks light up the sky. Even though many are not aware of the American historical significance, this holiday has annually encouraged people to come together happily, which could very much be the importance of it.

10 Revolutionary Women To Remember This Fourth Of July

The patriots of the American Revolution aren't the only ones who gave us the rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

10 Revolutionary Women To Remember This Fourth Of July

Independence Day is almost upon us, which means that for most Americans, it'll be time to bust out the lawn chairs and grills, gather around family and friends, and praise our history through patriotic garb and grand fireworks displays. It's the one day of the year where everyone forgets their political biases or historic inaccuracies, at least for a while, to look back on the hazy, illustrious history of the United States.

But, while we celebrate what people like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Patrick Henry did for this country, they are not the only ones who embodied the very virtues that our nation loves to advocate for. This Fourth of July, here are ten American women who history tends to forget, despite the groundbreaking things they did for their country.
