Get Off Your Ass and VOTE!

Standard

Today is a primary election day in Wisconsin. Here in Racine we can vote for up to 3 School Board candidates and 1 candidate for State Supreme Court. In some districts, there are City Council races as well – quite a few candidates in the 1st District (Downtown area) actually.

I have been hearing about the turnout so far and it is down right pathetic. The GAB predicted a less than 10% turnout – so we all know a February Primary will not bring in herds of voters. But it sounds as if the turnout is even lower than expected. Lame, people! Lame.

We have so little control over our government; so little control over our own lives. Why not exercise the once chance you have at making your voice heard – if even a whisper?

Do you know why we – and by we I mean Wisconsinites and Americans – are in the position we are in? Do you know why our Congress is at a stand still and why healthcare is being taken away from less fortunate citizens? Do you know why our cities, villages and municipalities are bone dry broke? Do you know why reproductive rights and protections for women are being stripped each day? Do you know why more and more money is going to corporate fat cats instead of green energy, the sick, the poor, the elderly, the veterans? It is because there are far too many democrats, liberals and progressives who sit on their asses on days like today. Perhaps it is YOUR fault.

Please do not put yourself in a position of being blamed for the ills of all society ever again. When you have the chance to vote – do it. Got it? Thanks.

Just HAD to add this photo of my friend, Rocky, with his playful love of Democracy
