A longtime friend, former Wyoming Sen. Alan Simpson, once said that putting one's name on a ballot is a deeply personal decision. I also think it's an incredible patriotic thing to do. Let's face it, most of us sit it out on the sidelines but some do step up, state their positions, place their name on the ballot and "We the People" have the final say.
It's a good system. There is none better in the world. So vote for the candidate of your choice, but vote! Let's have as many people as possible vote for the candidate of their choice. Every vote does indeed count and our ability to vote is a most precious thing.
Don't waste democracy.
