I know everyone’s been hearing that they should go out and vote, but I’ve got a different message…
If you are only voting with your party lines, and haven’t even looked at the issues, please don’t vote.
If you watched, read or heard a political ad & believed what it said without looking up facts from reliable sources, please don’t vote. (political ads are a HUGE pet-peeve of mine since hardly any of them are 100% accurate, and some I’ve seen this time around are 100% lies… why is this allowed, and more importantly why do people actually believe them?!?)
If you believe any of that “he-say, she-say” nonsense about the candidates’ lives without knowing the truth, please don’t vote.
If you received an email forward about a candidate and thought to yourself “Hmmm, that’s interesting, let me forward this on to all my friends”, really people… please don’t vote.
And, if you don’t know the true records of the candidates & haven’t looked at both of their plans, my goodness, please don’t vote.
It’s great that we live in a wonderful country who let’s everyone vote, but the idea behind that is that all those who vote can actually make an informed decision… can you?
This election will determine so many aspects of our lives for many years to come. So many important decisions that will affect you, your children’s & grandchildren’s lives are going to be decided by the next President. Think about where you will be in 20 years, and what you will be dealing with. Raising a family? Sending a child to college? Caring for your elderly parent? Caring for yourself? Based on the facts, which candidate will serve your best interests? Do you know? If so, then VOTE!!!
