Taking a quick break from fiction to share a few thoughts on the upcoming election.
The apathetic and nihilistic will tell you your vote, your voice, doesn’t matter. Nothing changes. It will be status quo no matter who is in office. I tend to be that voice. It would be foolish not to confess Congress is bought by wealthy special interests.
It would also be foolish not to confess that we the people are not part of the problem. When we allow our apathy and nihilism (and cynicism) to move us to inaction, we allow the status quo to continue unchallenged.
What if I told you that you have a nation changing super power? What if I told you that the magic to disrupt the current paradigm was in your hands? You see we don’t have to be the slaves of special interest owned media talking points.
Your vote matters. It gives the powers that be notice of your vision for our nation. Even if we fail, if enough of us fail together, it gives warning to those who pull the strings that change is rising on the wind. It lets them know that more and more of us are waking up to their games, and we have had enough.
This election isn’t just about POTUS. There are Senate seats up for grabs, and that is powerful! Congress, as we have seen the last eight years, can halt or promote the change you want to see! Look at who is up for election. See who represents your interests over their own and their donors!
I’m not going to tell you who to vote for; that is not my place. I am, however, going to plead with you, that if you can vote, do so. Your voice matters! This election matters. Make your voice heard!
If your choice doesn’t come to fruition, that’s fine, but see how many other voices stood alongside yours. This could indicate what change is on the wind.
