Just 537 people decided the 2000 Presidential election. 537. Imagine what a huge difference those votes made. Image how different the world would now be if 537 more people had voted.
Climate change may have been addressed. The Great Recession may have never happened. Laissez faire, Enron may have all been avoided.
Your vote counts. Don’t let anyone or anything — not a TV station or a newspaper or a person you may know — let you believe otherwise.
Democracy is important. Precious. Perhaps, it is the thing that is most vital about America — the fact that we all have a voice. The greatest and least among us are all equal come election day.
So if you are one of the meek, the oppressed, the down-trodden. Lift your voices and be heard! If you are one of the hopeful, those who believe that a better future can be achieved when we work together. Lift your voices and be heard! If you are one of the concerned, one of those who can see what is happening to our climate, who is dismayed at one political party’s complete and utter denial of the problem. Lift your voices and be heard! And if you are one of those under threat of losing your rights — immigrant, woman, worker. Lift your voices and be heard!
This is your chance to shine. This is your chance to make history and decide the course of our still great nation.
