Not Elective

Rather than coming up with a clever song for today, one that adequately showcases my, at times, impatience with our current democratic model, I’m simply going to use one word: Vote. It’s not a song, it’s not even a lyric. It’s not anything worldly or deep. It’s simply your right. Use it.

Today, I use my voice, not so much for singing loudly in the shower to myself, but, rather to express my thoughts and beliefs in the form of walking into a public arena and checking a box.

Do you know how many people have said, “Bad politicians are elected by good people who don’t vote”? (or some variant of that quote) Enough of the ambivalence and excuses. You can’t affect change if you don’t even show up.

Don’t rock the vote, rock YOUR vote. Besides, all the cool kids are doing it.
