Having just recently gone through our own election here in Quebec, I can’t help but talk about the US presidential election.
Today is the day. Today is the day that you have to go vote. Great in theory. Simply end your second shift (also known as your DAY JOB – whatever that may be) and head on over to give in your ballot. Of course we all know that theory is NOT reality.
Reality is today will be just as long as every other day. You have the kids to take care of. You have supper to prepare and possibly a load of laundry to do because you’ve made it your mission to find the bottom of the laundry hamper during THIS life time. Oh and homework. Let’s not forget one of the biggest challenges of a parent’s day: our kids’ homework. (Which I think SCHOOL IS FOR but that’s another topic.)
Reality also dictates that it would be soooo easy to just blow off the whole voting thing all together. After all, what difference does one little vote make, right?
Actually, one little vote – YOUR little vote – is the most important of all. Have you considered what happens when we don’t exercise our right to vote?
Have you seen The Hunger Games? THAT’S what happens. Morons – also known as eccentric control-freaks – gain power and then we’re stuck watching our kids live in an unconstitutional society.
Okay. I’ll shut-up now.
PS. If this is your first time here, this is not a political blog. In fact, I barely know what country I live in. My occasional use of words like “unconstitutional” and “voting” does not make me political. It makes me observant. Plus I’ve just recently watched The Hunger Games.
