Today is Election Day in the US: Have a Say! Cast Your Vote! It Does Matter!

In Politics on November 7, 2006 at 6:54 am

How sad it is to see so many who live in the United States of America and enjoy the freedoms that God has provided her — freedoms that most other countries do not have — and yet they refuse to exercise their right to vote.

Does the concept of being able to choose the leadership of our federal, state, and local leaders ever stagger you?  It does me.  2006 is what is called a ‘mid-term election’ because it falls right in the middle of the presidential election cycle.  So some may view this as an election that is ‘not as important.’

That’s not the point.  The point is, we have that God-given freedom that few in history have ever possessed.  So let’s be a responsible citizen of this country and vote and have a say in the matters of the state.

Otherwise, we have no room and are uber-hypocritical for lodging any complaints toward our leaders.

Have a say!  Cast your vote!    It does matter!
