In my mind, there is only one thing that really makes this nation a true democracy—our privilege to vote in free elections.
Yet, if you look at an NFL stadium full of people, know that less than 43% voted in the last election (and that is based on ‘registered’ voters, so the real number is worse when you count all people 18 and older). While someone is exposing their world or national views, know that there is a better chance that person doesn’t vote.
That is not a good showing of our “love of country.” So tomorrow, please vote. More voting (and less talking) will show Russia and other developed countries that people actually care about and respect this great democracy.
Nothing sends a stronger message.
