Go Out and Vote
I've been away for quite some time, but I see it fit to make my return today. It's Election Day. The day we've all been waiting for. Who is going to be the next president of our country? Will it be Hillary Clinton, or will it be Donald Trump? Personally I could care less. That doesn't mean I'm not going to vote. Essentially the task of voting is literally our duty as American citizens, and to not do your duty is a big disservice to the democratic process, to your country, and to yourself.
You may not like Hillary, and you might hate Trump, but I implore that you step up and do your duty to vote. Today's election decides so much more than who is going to be president. Landmark legislation will be decided with this election today. Many states will be deciding whether to legalize medical marijuana, and many other states will be deciding to legalize recreational marijuana. The senate house is up for grab, and the shift in power depends purely on voter turn out. Tonight many states will be using this election to make the choice to enact Obamacare expansion after originally opting out. Voting today determines so many things, such as school budgets, tax breaks, and in the case of California today's vote may ban the use of plastic bags.
Ultimately depending on your state you have a lot of decisions to make today, and not voting only means you've given up your right to an opinion. Remember people fought for the right to vote, there was years of protest for the right to be apart of the democratic process in this country. Don't take for granted the power we have today, and belittle the people that worked to make sure we all had this right today. Save the conspiracy theories for the Netflix documentaries. Use your vote as your voice today, and they even give you a cool sticker.
