your vote counts

Spokane, WA

#1 Oct 23, 2012
This is a copy of a letter i sent to several editors around the country. Read it and see if you agree or not.

I am extremely worried about the direction that our country is heading. We are losing our rights, and the federal Government is taking over our free enterprises, at an alarming rate. What can we do about it? Well the first and easiest thing every American over 18 can do is VOTE! I get so disgusted when I hear someone say,“What can my one vote do, what does it matter”. Your one vote may be the one that brings this country back on the right track! Your one vote may be the difference between living in a Republic or a Socialist nation. One vote, One vote, YOUR VOTE, may be the difference that assures your children of a better future. If you don’t have the enough love for yourself, or this country, at least think about what your children will have to endure, because you were to lazy, or apathetic, to lift one finger and put a mark on a piece of paper!
You say these things will never happen in our country; we will never lose our rights. Wake up, it’s happening right now and it will only get worse if the current administration stays in office. You say,“Even if Obama stays in office it will only be for another 4 years and then he will not have any more effect on the direction of this country”. NOT, THINK AGAIN! Whoever wins this presidential election will shape the future of this country for years if not decades to come. How will he be able to do that? Simple, several Supreme Court Justices are old and ready to retire. After this election whoever wins will be able to appoint several new justices’ to the Supreme Court. They will decide the direction of our county, and the fate of your children, for at least the span of their lives; which could be 70 or 80 years.
One of our current rights under attack is the Second Amendment. This would not ever be an issue if the 150million gun owners, in this county, didn’t sit back and have someone else carry the load for them. What does it take to wake you up? Do UN troops have to show up at your doorstep to seize your weapons before you pull your head out of the sand? You say,“They will never take my gun until they pry it from my cold dead fingers’. Why don’t you try protecting your rights before it comes to that? Haven’t you ever heard that the pen is mightier than the sword? It’s so easy to register and vote. Why do you depend on other Americans to fight for you? If you are so lazy, empathetic, or ignorant of what Hillary Clinton is currently doing at the UN to take away your rights and guns, that you can’t protect your rights through the simple act of voting, then someday they might be prying your gun from your “cold dead fingers”. If it comes to that, don’t blame anyone but yourself, for not stopping it when you could. YOUR VOTE DOES MATTER!!
This is the most important election I have seen in my lifetime, and perhaps the most important election in the existence of this country. If you are unhappy with the way this country is being run and the direction it is heading:

-23 Million Unemployed or Underemployed
—47 Million on Food Stamps
—5.5 Million Homes in Crisis/Foreclosure
—$4500 Drop in Household Income
—$5.5 Trillion of New Debt
—$716 Billion in Medicare Cuts
—$2.6 Trillion for Obamacare
—$1.9 Trillion in New Taxes in Obama’s Budget
—100% Increase in Gas Prices (gas was $1.88 a gallon when Obama took office)

Do something about it. Instead of just complaining and whining, do something about it, while you still have the freedom to make your voice heard.

GET REGISTERED AND VOTE. Even if you have never cared enough to vote before, please do it in this election. Please vote to honor all the Americas that died protecting that right. Vote for the future of your country and the sake of your children. Vote to ensure that they have the freedoms that you have enjoyed in your lifetime. Please cast one vote for the sake of your freedom…it may be the last chance you get.
