You better all be good citizens this Tuesday.
It isn’t that hard to vote.
It is sorta hard to figure out how to vote. If you’re not sure what to do, go here. Take a good amount of time and figure it out.
I did today, and I feel like I just climbed a mountain. I read through candidate positions, followed the money, and weighed pros and cons. And not just at the federal level nor even state propositions. Local government needs research also. I do recommend, however, if you don’t know how to vote, don’t vote just to vote. Skip that one initiative this time around. If you’re not going to do the research or have an opinion based on a strong foundation then move to the next grouping and vote. I believe everyone should vote, but I think everyone should also vote conscientiously.
Finally, for my California readers, America is founded on the principles that people are imbued with rights and freedoms by God and that Constitutions and Bills of Rights merely enumerate those rights and freedoms and not necessarily grant them nor take them away. Thus, modifying the state constitution to take away same-sex couple’s rights is fundamentally broken. Remember your own freedoms. Remember what makes America great. Vote No on Prop 8.
