February 5th - Super Tuesday: •Vote•


One word: Vote.

Whomever you vote for, Democrat, Republican, Independent, etc., go to the polls and make your voice heard and make that voice count.


Pictured right Super Tuesday Map, courtesy Wikipedia: "Twenty-four states are holding caucuses or primary elections on Super Tuesday, 2008. Blue denotes Democratic-only caucuses (3), Red illustrates Republican-only contests (2), and Purple represents states holding elections for both parties (19)."

To quote from MuthaWit's recent blog entry, "Bullocks or the Ballot?":

"If you don't have health insurance. Vote. If you work your butt off but still find it difficult to make the rent or mortgage each month. Vote. If you want to insure that your children have a quality education no matter your economic status. Vote. If you don't think anyone should be able to tell a woman how to manage her body but a woman. Vote. If you want to know that your parents are going to have a check to live off in their later years...not a gimmie...but a check based upon money that they put into the social security system. Vote. If you think teachers, fire fighters and police should be rewarded WELL based upon the quality of their service. Vote. If you want to be able to breathe clean air(relative in NYC I know LOL) and drink fresh water. Vote. If you feel like you are spinning with no direction in life. Vote.

"Don't give up or give your choice away.

"Let the figureheads of this country know that we are watching, writing and wrestling them out of office if need be. We are the people...the government... and those figureheads are granted the privilege to represent our varied voices. If we don't tell them what we NEED they will give us what they want. This is not the time to be simple or silent."

AMEN!

And to keep the funky citizenship vibe going...

From Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings (with a bit o' help from Freedom Fries Productions): A lecture for George W., tips on active citizenry, and a call to vote via the funky throw-down, "What If We All Stopped Paying Taxes"(2004, but still completely relevant) :

A tax-paying, jury duting, sickening patriotic, generally good guy, but Independent co-worker of mine was denied his right to vote because he was neither Democrat or Republican.

What sad state of affairs allowed that to happen? (rhetorically speaking)

Samuel, that is seriously wrong. Therein lies one of many problems with the dominance of the two-party system. I think Massachusetts is one of the few states where you can register as Independent but still vote for whichever candidate you choose come election time. Or at least that used to be the case.
