Let’s face it. Americans don’t vote.
Why don’t they vote? I really have no idea. It defies logic. Why in the world would you put yourself in a position to let someone else speak for you in deciding our common journey?
I sit here in Missouri where we are on the verge of having two arguably psychotic US senators, and I cannot figure out why. Why would we let this happen? The St. Louis, Kansas City, and Columbia metro areas easily outnumber the rest of the state. There really is no excuse. We have the power to prevent this.
All registered voters must use any means necessary to get out to vote. Take advantage of your employer’s policies to take time off to vote, vote by mail, vote early on a non-working day, call a family member or friend for a ride – just make your voice heard.
