The Right to Vote: Don’t Take it for Granted!

Often times I think we get caught up in who our next president will be, however, during that time we often take for granted that fact that we have the freedom to cast a vote for the candidate of our choosing. This freedom is guaranteed as our right to vote.

The reason I’m writing this is because I just approved a comment a few minutes ago from a commenter originating from the country of China. The comment was as follows:

Great American Democratic System.I don’t care about who will be the new president ,only enjoy the process of American people’s voting that not exist in China.

– Zhou Sheng

That certainly put this entire election process into perspective for me, just the simple fact that not everyone around the world enjoys the same God-given freedoms we have been granted here in the United States of America is sobering.

Not to get sentimental on you all, but I thought some of you might appreciate this observation as well.

So the next time you’re ticked off about either candidate, just remember that at least you have a right to speak your mind and cast a vote for your candidate since not everyone around the world has that same opportunity.

The main message here is that if you don’t vote, you have no right to complain! End of story. Obviously most registration deadlines have passed, however, if you have registered, make sure you get out and vote on November 4th and do so for all the people around the world who aren’t given that same privilege.

This concludes my sentimental reflection, please wait until the ride comes to a full and complete stop before exiting.
