This morning I asked someone who was he going to vote for and I was shocked by his response:
“I am a Republican, I don’t like Trump, so there is no reason to vote,” he said.
“Are you out of your mind” I replied “Can’t you see how important this election is?”
“Well, I have been here for 40 years and I always voted Republican, and I don’t feel right voting for Hillary… neither deserve my vote!” He said.
“Do you understand, not voting is giving the vote to Trump, it is accepting his bigotry, you as an immigrant should know better!
I want to see your ‘I Voted’ sticker on the 8th,” I responded.
_Anyway, I do have a thought:
When people believe that no one is good enough for them, believing that their vote is far too precious to give to any candidate is when we have a problem.
A vote is an instrument not a formality; it is a tool used to ensure that we get the government we prefer or the one we dislike the least. A vote is the only opportunity to have a voice. A vote is not about you, but about the good of the country and the people. It is our obligation to the freedoms bestowed upon us by living in a democratic country that gives us this fundamental right to vote.
Always remember before wasting your vote: A vote is a right and today there are millions of people around the world who would be willing to risk their lives to have the right to vote so don’t diminish this right!
