The Last Day

One day until the BIGGEST election in our great countries' history begins.

I can't recall the last time I was this nervous about anything. Our entire country...our lives...our beliefs...our moral compasses are all at stake here. It saddens me to know that so many people have already gone to the polls and will go tomorrow and had no idea why they voted for the candidate the voted for.

Many will have voted for "their" candidate because what the media told them, what a co-worker told them, what a person driving the van taking them to the poll told them....yet they never took the time to educate themselves on the issues, the candidates' past, their beliefs etc.

I believe there will many people who months from now will be asking themselves "Why is this happening?". And the simple answer will be "We tired to tell you educate yourself. You didn't have to listen to us. All you had to do was go and educate yourself. Find out the information for yourself." You would have seen it coming.

It is not too late. Take the time before you hit the voting booth and make sure the one you are voting for lines up with your beliefs, your moral compass, how YOU want to see our country run and governed.

That's my two cents........
