MY FELLOW COUNTRYMEN...Have You Voted?
I like the noise of democracy.
...So long as the people do not care to exercise their freedom, those who wish to tyrannize will do so; for tyrants are active and ardent, and will devote themselves in the name of any number of gods, religious and otherwise, to put shackles upon sleeping men.
For too long we've been told about "us" and "them." Each and every election we see a new slate of arguments and ads telling us that "they" are the problem, not "us." But there can be no "them" in America. There's only us.
I could think of no worse example for nations abroad, who for the first time were trying to put free electoral procedures into effect, than that of the United States wrangling over the results of our presidential election, and even suggesting that the presidency itself could be stolen by thievery at the ballot box.
It's not the hand that signs the laws that holds the destiny of America. It's the hand that casts the ballot.
Harry S. Truman
If you have not already done so...please exercise your right to vote today!!
Happy Treasure Hunting!
