“America, if eligible at all to downfall and ruin,
is eligible within herself,
Always inform yourself;
always do the best you can;
Walt Whitman, 150 years ago
Tomorrow is the day you can have a say in our government. Our government is a government of the people, by the people, and for the people- you are the people of this country, so don’t let others decide for you. Don’t let this opportunity pass-get out and vote. This is your opportunity to let your voice be heard. Vote your conscience, vote for the right, become informed so you can make a good decision.
The over riding force for me in voting is said so well by Elizabeth Worden Bixby-
First and foremost I vote for life.
Without the right to life any other liberties
I always vote pro-life.
Are you planning to vote?
You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body
and knit me together in my mother’s womb.
Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex!
Your workmanship is marvelous-
how well I know it.
You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion,
as I was woven together in the dark of the womb.
You saw me before I was born….
