In America, we have the opportunity to elect our political leaders. Our founding fathers considered voting not only a right but also a duty. At the founding of this country, 100% of the citizens voted. Today, around 25% vote in general elections, and around 15% vote in primaries. And to think that our founders pledged their lives, fortunes, and sacred honor to establish this great country so that Americans can sit on the couch watching American Idol. Many of these same, non-voting Americans even have the nerve to complain about how the government is run! It’s time to get off of the couch, register to vote, and fulfill our duty to actively participate in the election process!
Today, Tuesday, January 3, is the last day to register to vote in the upcoming January 31 Florida Republican Presidential Preference Primary. Of course, you can register for any party of your choice or no party, but if you wish to participate in selecting the presidential candidate for the Republican party, you must be registered as a Republican no later than end of business today. Don’t stand by and let someone else choose the candidate, and by all means, don’t complain about the candidate if you don’t participate in the election process! Register to vote today! Educate yourself on where the candidates stand, and then
