From Mon Nov 03, 2008 3:00 am to Wed Nov 05, 2008 2:59 am (included)
|So now that we have come to the end of a campaign that has been going on forever.
The candidates will pull out all of their dirt tricks over the next 24 hours in a last ditch effort to sway our decisions.
And then it will be up to us to decide.
Unfortunately many of us will not even bother.
Some will look at the polls and decide their candidate doesnít have a chance so they will not bother to vote.
Others will think just the opposite and feel that their candidate is so far ahead that their vote is not necessary
Whatís worse is that many of us will just enter the voting both and just vote straight down our party line.
This has become standard practice with many Americans.
It has also contributed to the current state of our nation as well as the condition of our states and cities.
On election day the country will not only be deciding who will be guiding the country for the next four years but in many cases it will be deciding who will be making decisions closer to home.
On Staten Island decisions will be made in the Assembly and the State Senate.
We will also be selecting our new Congressman.
Decisions such as these will be being made all over the country.
But again many will not vote and others will be selecting candidates for no other reason than the fact that they are on the same party line as their choice for president.
This is the real problem facing America today.
We need to be more involved and voting is just a part of that responsibility.
We need to know who we are voting for and we are not going to get that information from advertisements, lawn signs or mailings.
Have you ever once gotten information from any candidates stating what promises they didnít deliver on?
So on Election Day do us all a favor.
Take a little time and put some thought into what candidates you are selecting.
They will have a job for the next few years.
Letís make sure that they will work to assure that we can say the same.
I have said it before and I will say it again ďWe need representatives not politiciansĒ at every level of government.
On Election Day we can make a difference.
Letís see if we will.
