C-NOTE JOURNAL- GOTTA VOTE.... DUDE

We are now in election season, not just for the midterm elections but there are municipal elections coming up in the spring and after the midterms is the unofficial start of the 2012 Presidental campaign season. Many people will say that they will not vote because they feel that our public officials will do what they want anyway but we are a nation of by the people and for the people. The real power of our country belongs to the hardworking, regular folks and not the special interests that try to influence the process. Our soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines have fought hard for this right to vote by keeping people like Adolf Hitler, Benito Mussolini and the like from taking that right from us. Go to any U.S Military cemetary in the United States or around the world and one can see the sacrifice made firsthand by our armed forces to keep us free and to keep our right to vote in free democratic elections possible. In countries like Iraq where the voting process is relatively new, people risked their freedom and their very lives for that right to vote. In 1989, countries of the old eastern bloc took to the streets and toppled oppressive governments and instituted democracies that are still flourshing today. In some of these countries, the communists were voted back into power but they can also be voted out and not keep power forever. The right to vote is a very precious thing because you determine who leads your government whether its federal, state or local. Voting is a very simple process and is done in a matter of minutes. Before you vote, inform yourself about the candidates in all the races so one is making an informed decision. This is not hard to do, just watch TV news or listen to radio news, read newspapers, watch political-type shows and the like. It is not time-consuming to do this, just a bit here and a bit there helps. If you not registered to vote, make sure you head down to your county elections office( In Illinois that is the County Clerks Office) or you City Election commission and exercise your most precious right as a citizen of the Greatest Country The World Has Ever Known. People, you have the power to make things happen, Vote on November 2nd and in all elections after. There is no such thing as a unimportant election. They affect all of us in one way or another. No More Excuses about not voting, as the Godfather used to say in the pizza commericials..... DO IT.
