Just listening to CBC’s Early Edition. Two guest bloggers talking about why we should get out and vote. One of the bloggers admitted she gets kind of weepy every time she casts a vote. Me too. I am always struck by the privilege of it. Get out and vote in your civic election tomorrow. Here are some inspiring quotes to motivate you.
To make democracy work, we must be a nation of participants, not simply observers. One who does not vote has no right to complain. – Louis L’Amour
Bad politicians are sent to Washington [or insert your town] by good people who don’t vote. – William E. Simon
