I said in an earlier post that I would endeavor to avoid discussing politics on this blog like a plague. But in this particular instance, I am going to bend my self-imposed rule. As most people know Tuesday is the Mid-term elections in the United States. We will be electing 36 Governors, 35 Senators and all 435 members of the United States House of Representatives. Not only this but legislators on the state level, and ballot initiatives that cover everything from Tax levies, Minimum wage increases, and medical marijuana.
That’s a massive amount of things. And even though the president is not on the ballot, many people on both sides of the political spectrum see the election as a referendum on the president’s performance. This election gives the public their first chance to respond to Trump through the ballot. Both sides seem pretty stoked about expressing their views and this is slated to have one of the highest participation rates for a non-presidential election in our nation’s history.
Which leads me to my big political statement. Here it is:
See, I even asked nicely. If you are an American Citizen over the age of 18, Please vote! This election is one of the most important elections in our history. I don’t believe that is hyperbole either. I don’t care if you are a Republican, Democrat, Libertarian, Independent, or anything else. (Alright, I DO care a whole lot but, I am keeping my opinions off this page) The main thing is that you actively participate in the direction our nation is taking during this vital junction. The next two (and more) years will be directly affected by how the majority votes. Do the right thing for our nation, me and yourself and get your butt to the polls!!
