The above cartoon I thought was pretty appropriate, especially given the recent amusing hoopla over national voter registration day. I mean, even if you spent only five seconds on google, twitter or facebook, you probably encountered at least one of their annoying ads “evangelizing” on why it’s SO important to get registered to vote for whoever you happen to think the lesser of two evils might be. Yeah, BIG choice there.
I’m not sure who all these people think they’re fooling. Just like this other ad featuring a bunch of movie stars pleading with us peasants to get out the vote and make sure that either the Left’s Wallstreet Candidate “A” or the Right’s Wallstreet Candidate “B” keeps a firm boot planted on everyone’s back. It’s almost as if they think that special interest groups pumping millions into political parties, media bias, the weight given to urban districts over rural districts, and that funny game called the electoral college isn’t already over-riding that little thing called individual voice.
But in the end, while national elections might be prone to leave one feeling frustrated or excluded, I do think there’s a lot of hope for getting involved on a local level. By educating yourself on local leaders and issues that have real potential to impact your community (including you as an individual, your family, local economy, private business, local taxes and much more) your voice has the potential to make a positive difference where it really counts!
