This Midterm Election is depressing me more than

This Midterm Election is depressing me more than any election I have ever participated in –  the violence, the mysterious blackouts, the stupid political ads, the fact that I know who to vote for but I’m not too excited about any of the candidates – but I will still go out and vote on Monday. And I know you’d rather go to the mall or stay home with your family – it is too hot, and year after year we wonder what difference it even makes – but we’ve seen what clamor can do. It can overturn a court decision, it can put the spotlight on horrible legislation that gets passed without the public even knowing it. One vote usually doesn’t make a difference, but several hundred votes do. Go out there and be with the crowd, just this once. Please, please cast your vote.
