John Edwards on the importance of voting in this election.

 

Democratic Party LogoThis is what’s at stake in this election. We have two major parties in the most powerful nation on the planet. One of them has been running this country for the last 6 years. Look at what we’ve got. I mean beyond the scandals and corruption. Look at what’s happened in the world. Chaos, danger, and insecurity. It is not too much to say that the future of the world’s at stake in this election… That was said by John Edwards, and he’s exactly right.

Each person out there knows what must be done. If you have read  the posts on this site since June, you know why. Tommorow sets the path this country takes for 2 more years. Do we the voters swing it back from the edge of the cliff, or do we stay the course until our nation is driven right over the edge. The choice is up to you.

Get out and vote on November 7th

 

A Microvote Infinity voting machineIt’s really great that 20,972 people early voted in Montgomery County Tennessee, but a total of 74,843 people are registered to vote here. That leaves 53,871 people who have yet to vote! I want to strongly encourage each and every one of you to do so, on November 7th. Your party and who you will vote for doesn’t matter, your participation in the democratic process does. No excuses. Your vote does make a difference, so get out and VOTE!

A video used to be embedded here but the service that it was hosted on has shut down.

From then on I considered myself a proud independent, sort of in the middle. You know what I mean?

It was not until I attended a race relations summit, and I heard Tennessee Rep. and black caucus member Johnny Shaw speak these words that my political lifestyle would be forever changed. He stated:

When it comes to politics you are either on one side or the other, people who straddle the fence are just afraid to make a stand on anything.

Tennessee State Democratic Party Designated Early Vote Dates 2006

 

Democratic Party LogoWith fewer than 20 days remaining until the beginning of early voting, Tennessee Democratic Party Chairman Bob Tuke would like to remind everyone of the importance of turning out voters. “The ground game is where the rubber meets the road this fall,” Tuke said. “We have to work hard, work together, and work smart to win these elections for our candidates. You are the best defense against the baseless attacks that will be leveled against our candidates.” And you don’t have to wait for the campaigns to contact your family, your friends, and the other voters in your neighborhood. «Read the rest of this article»
