If you made certain your voice was heard at the polls today, good for you! You matter. Everybody matters. A crowd can’t create of wave if two-thirds of the fans sit it out. Here are some of my favorite takes on voting from people much wiser than I:
“We do not have government by the majority. We have government by the majority who participate.” –Thomas Jefferson
“One of the penalties for refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors” –Plato
“Someone struggled for your right to vote. Use It.” –Susan B. Anthony
“The ballot is stronger than the bullet.” –Abraham Lincoln
“The future of this republic is in the hands of the American voter.” –Dwight D. Eisenhower
“If you don’t vote, you lose the right to complain.” –George Carlin
Rock on citizens, rock on…..
