Why Voting Matters

Who you vote for makes a difference in your daily life, whether you realize it or not, and if you don’t even bother to vote, the ones who support people like this, do. The Trump supporters vote, the haters vote, the insurrectionists vote. To avoid the last four years and now this year as well doing a repeat performance, your vote is necessary. You have to vote in every election, too, not just the big ones, because that’s how they weasel their way in, they start small and work their way up until they are in the highest offices of government. You’ve seen the results of that. We need to fight to dismantle the Electoral College, we need to fight for mail-in-voting, we need to make election day a National Holiday to facilitate voting. Things need to change, and we are the ones who need to change it. This is what complacency has brought us. Thousands and thousands dying because of a mismanaged covid crises, Texans freezing and starving in their homes, people trying to overthrow the government because of so much false information they have been fed by Fox News and Facebook’s algorithms. We need to step up, and we need to do it now. Please. We forget that we have power. We leave it to those in Washington or state governments, and think we cannot change anything. We can. We just have to vote, for one thing. All of those senators who are aiding and abetting the insurrectionists and their ilk, who are keeping us from getting stimulus checks, who are blocking every thing that will help us and facilitating every thing that will benefit them, we put them there. We did. We can vote them out. We have the power. We just need to use it.
