The people of the United States will vote today. This election cycle has been the most contentious in modern times. Mud slinging from all sides of all campaigns, and so many insults and innuendo coming at us we can’t even keep track.
Get out there and VOTE! If you don’t vote you have made your choice. This isn’t just for four years, this will affect our country for generations.
No matter which candidate you support and vote for, all of them have faults, as we all do. I am not one to judge. History will do that.
Please remember this, anyone running for political office makes promises. Mayors, alderman, supervisors, sheriffs, congressmen and women and presidential candidates. Whether for better jobs, schools, infrastructure, military or lower taxes, they all make promises.
We as citizens of this great country must hold those elected officials accountable, from the local level, to state government to Washington D.C. If they don’t keep their promises ask them why. Hold their feet to the fire and vote them out of office. For far too long we have sat on our hands and refused to do anything when an our elected officials don’t do the job they were elected to do.
Please get out and vote for the person you think will do the best job.
God save America, God Bless America.
Pray often, be prepared and do a good turn daily.
