With all the problems facing our country, the Republican Congress last month passed a $275 billion tax cut for the top 5,500 of the wealthiest families in the United States. At the same time, 12 million Americans struggle to have enough to food to eat, and the Republicans call themselves deficit hawks.
Thanks to the low information voter, misinformed voter, and the Citizens United decision, these insensitive, hidden agenda-driven congressmen get elected and re-elected to shape our future to the detriment to all. Political apathy and low voter turnout heavily favor a kleptocratic agenda. As Marco Rubio, a strong climate change denier, stated so clearly in a recent interview, it is your right not to pay attention to political issues or to vote!
The biggest problem facing our future is the absence of critical thinking in our fellow Americans, along with political apathy, among eligible young voters. Nothing in the world is more dangerous than willful ignorance and conscious stupidity. Pay attention to the issues, register to vote, and vote your conscience.
It’s your right and obligation to vote. Rich man, one vote; poor man, one vote. True equality exists only at the ballot box. Make the democratic process work for you. Stand up and be recognized!
