Sunday Gratitude: The Vote

I hate to admit that I have not voted in an election in over nine years. I swore I wouldn’t ever again, because I feel that we are only led to believe we have a voice. But, after this post and Willie’s song, I will be at the polls in November!

Thank you to the men and women who fought for and won my right to vote this November 6.

Thank you Victoria Claflin Woodhull, the first Woman to run for President, 1872

    1. I couldn’t agree more, Mark. When are we ever going to recognize that our two-party system is completely and irreparably broken? It is sad to me and yet I don’t see how I can do a darn thing about any of it.
