You need to vote. In this crazy election, there are people who are fanatical about either candidate and then there are some who are kind of okay with one of them-- but then there's people stuck in the middle who feel as if they absolutely cannot bring themselves to vote for either of them.
I don’t care what your political affiliation is, if you care about what’s happening in this country – and in the world – you have to do something about it.
As a civilian, you may feel powerless to the endless corruption of government, but it is your right and your civic duty to vote – in fact, this is your main source of power.
With the ever growing presence of the media and social media, it’s easier than ever before to become informed and even over-informed, about current events and political happenings. If you want to have a say in what’s happening in your world, you need to vote. If you don’t think you like either candidate, but feel strongly about certain issues, you need to vote.
If you think that we need to “Make America Great Again,” think about what that really means and how we need to get there... and then vote.
Voting is a privilege we see as our right as civilians but think of the decades where people who weren’t white men because they had to fight for the ability to vote. It’s hard to think back to a time where not everyone would have this opportunity once they turned 18, but that’s the sad reality of history.
As a plug for Hillary Clinton, a bunch of celebrities came together to make this (**vulgar, but hysterically true**) video, “Holy S**t, You've Got To Vote,” and while it is biased towards one of the candidates, it only stresses the importance of coming out to the polls.
So please, make your country and yourself proud. Think about your future and your children and grandchildren’s future-- do the right thing. Go out and vote this Tuesday.
