Get Out And Vote!

Disclaimer: this post might ruffle a few feathers, might cause me to lose followers when I don't have many to begin with. I genuinely hope it doesn't BUT if it happens so be it,  because this is important!

The presidential election is less than 40 days away. Voting is very important. As easy as it can be to be fed-up with the politics of politics, we must vote to make our voices be heard! If we wish to have any say in what goes on in our government we must vote for the people we feel will best represent us.
  If you are not registered to vote, take the time and go to 

There are many reasons why I will be voting to re-elect President Barack Obama. At the core of all of those reasons is the fact that he cares about the entire population of the country, not just the well-off. He doesn't believe the government is a cure-all pill for its citizens but he damn well believes it should help the lives of ALL of the people of the country. 

I ask for you to take five minutes out of your day to listen to Eva Longoria's speech from the Democratic National Convention. I believe she does a marvelous job expressing why she is for Barack Obama. 



  1. I love this. In Australia, voting is compulsory and whilst I don't think forcing uninformed teenagers to vote is a perfect system, it's always bothered me that so few American's choose to. I don't get to vote in your election, but if I did I've vote to keep Obama in as well. Fingers crossed x

    1. Thank You! I agree with you, I don't think we should make it compulsory here but I hate that so many people choose not to vote. Often times the same people who don't vote are the ones complaining afterwards.

  2. I'm so glad you posted this! I really need to get more education on the election and the issues, so it's really helpful when videos like this are posted on blogs. (Maybe that shows that I should be browsing the news more than I browse blogs??) I'd love to hear more about why you are voting for Obama! I think I'm pro-Obama, but I feel like I don't know nearly enough to make an educated decision, as sad as that is.


I love reading y'alls comments! Let me know what you think : )
