Remember Who's Boss

 

Tomorrow, Tuesday,November 8, remember who’s boss. YOU ARE THE BOSS. This is your chanceto make your voice heard. You get to decide among your fellow Americans who youlike, dislike and who you really wish would just get hit by a bus. But sadly,far too few people turn out to vote. I hear excuses like…

  •  “I have to work.” FACT: allemployers must allow employees to vote, and in some states, they have to payyou for it: http://www.findlaw.com/voting-rights-law.html;or,
  • “My vote doesn’t count.” FACT: if your community is turning out well below otherneighborhoods, elected officials will pay less attention, make fewerappearances and fewer appeals to your neighborhood; or, in my opinion, theworst one:
  • “Congress doesn’t really affect my life.” FACT: YES, IT DOES!



There is not a single aspect of daily life that isn’t affected byCongress and often more directly by state and local government.  The roadsyou drive on, the air you breathe, the water you drink, the food you eat, theschools that teach your children and grandchildren, and the freedom you enjoy –are all a function of government.

When I hear these excuses I’m reminded of the quote most attributed to President Lyndon B. Johnson: "A man without a vote is a man without protection."

Don’t go unprotected. Whether you are Democrat, Republican or Independent, get out there tomorrow and make your voice heard and remember, you are the boss.
