“I didn’t vote cause I know both candidates would ruin this country.”
If you do not vote, you do not have the right to complain about the way our nation is going.
I was seeing posts like this all night from many different people. “Both men are evil.” “Why would I vote for a liar?” Statuses like this flooded my news feed all night last night in between all the happiness and sadness. It really makes me sad to see people complain about something they didn’t even make their voice be heard. When we turn 18, whether we are white, black, Hispanic, Asian, Straight, Gay, fat, skinny, man or woman, we get the right to vote in an election that will affect our lives. I was brought up around a lot of people who loved history of this country and voting was not just a right it was a privilege. One of the first things I did when I turned 18 was registered to vote and I was so proud to cast my first ballot.
It doesn’t matter who you voted for, it’s about if you voted or not. So now I turn to you the reader. Freedom of Speech is one of the great things about the nation that we live in. If you didn’t vote do you have a right to complain about how our nation, states, and cities are being run? Comment and let us know what you think.
