“Nobody will ever deprive the American people of the right to vote except the American people themselves and the only way they could do this is by not voting.”-Franklin D. Roosevelt
We too often hear that our vote doesn’t count, that we can’t really make a difference which leads us to become lethargic and disheartened when it comes to voting. Please understand that to do nothing is to give permission to the few to do whatever they want without a single thought to what is best for you and your family. Mamas, please find out where to vote and vote responsibly because you have a voice and a responsibility to use it. Let it be heard in order to impact your family and the world.
3 Reasons You Need to Vote Today:
1. Because your freedom came with a great price.
This is certainly not news, but it is easy to take for granted the cost of our freedom– freedom that others have bought with their lives and their fortunes. We must not forget the privilege we have and the right to ensure that it continues.
2. Because through your vote, you can protect not only your own rights, but the rights of your children and grandchildren.
When you vote, you are choosing someone to speak for you. Do you know where they stand on issues of importance to you and your family? Please don’t vote for who your friends or family think should be in office. Vote for who stands for your values. It will make a difference for you, your children, and your grandchildren.
3. Because one vote really can make a difference.
Don’t think so? Check out these statistics. Sure, one vote often doesn’t swing a decision, but in some cases they do, and in all cases, the collective votes of the individuals speak volumes.
Election Day 2014 is upon us and you, Mamas, have an opportunity to change the world yet again. Please don’t miss it.
See you at the polls!
