Back in 2012, nearly 4 million eligible American voters did not vote in the Presidential Election. While their reasons varied, they lost their right to complain about the end result of that election by not voting.
I am hearing from all across America from voters who are upset and angry with both political parties. This comes as no surprise as there's enough blame to go around for many of the things we've seen the past several years when it comes to Politics. The main objection seems to be the "my way or the highway" approach coming from the leaders of the Democrat and Republican Parties, as well as by President Obama's same approach. To put it simply, this is getting America "nowhere."
There has to be a compromise of some sort if the politicians Americans elect can do the business of "We the People." Gridlock, stalemate and just not getting along with each other are not The time has come for all eligible voters to get out and vote for the candidates of their choice! what we send our elected officials to City, County, State and our National Capitols to do.
Some will say it's been a good thing for Congress to have not achieved much of anything in the way of new legislation. Others wonder how we can't balance our own federal budget when most States and every home in America must. The wasteful spending at the national level has gotten way out of control and must stop! The consequences of not doing so are too great to consider.
So what I plan on doing this 2014 Mid-Term Election is to take my "one vote," granted to me under the Constitution, Declaration of Independence, Bill of Rights and by law, to the voting booth.
The time has come for all eligible voters to get out and vote for the candidates of their choice! If you don't want to remain the "problem" America faces, but want to be part of the "solution," use your rights to exercise your opinion by voting.
May God continue to bless America always in all ways...
Editor's Note: In addition to exercising your right to cast a ballot, it is equally important to both familiarize yourself with the facts of the issues and not just what the politicians and political parties want you to believe, and to understand that faction (read: partisan party) politics is the reason our country is suffering today. To the latter, Pres. Washington, in his farewell address stated it quite plainly:
"However combinations or associations of [factions] may now and then answer popular ends, they are likely, in the course of time and things, to become potent engines, by which cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the power of the people, and to usurp for themselves the reins of government – destroying afterwards the very engines which have lifted them to unjust dominion..."
