(Or: A vote, like a sword, can save your way of life.)
In these last two days Rooster wants to impress upon you the importance of your vote. Do not waste one drop of it. Do what you can to make certain others around you vote, unless of course they are brain dead. In that case forget them, because there are plenty of that kind who will vote.
Always, in every democratic society, approximately 1/3 of the people are in fact brain dead. They do not think beyond their navel, and have little concept of who is who in the political world which surrounds them. They vote as they are programed. They cannot even tell you if Washington D.C. is a State or not. They probably will take offense if you suggest the government gives too much for too little. Why? Because most of them depend on the Government for sustenance. They fear change not for good reasons, but simply because it threatens their tomorrow.
Most of the 1/3 believe Government is Mom. They know enough that voting Democrat means Mom will be ok and no spankings will happen. Sugar and spice and everything nice. This 1/3 is the group who says Obama is doing a good job. No thought just mindless adoration for someone to care for them. When Obama’s approval rating falls to 1/3 this is the group who steadfastly supports him no matter what. Why? Because they do not think about “What”.
This is why you your vote is so important. Common sense people who think about politics are already down 1/3 from the get-go. When you and yours vote think about that. One/third have already voted against your hopes.
Good Luck. Vote.
