I’ve been seeing a lot of “Not voting IS my vote” and “Voting is Surrendering” posts floating around on social media lately.
Everyone is (
not really) indeed entitled to their ( misguided) opinion on this, but I urge you to vote. Beyond that, go volunteer for whatever cause you believe in, rectify what you think is wrong in our country, and you know, make a difference. Let clicktivism be your teether and get on out there and lick envelopes or something. Yeah, that’s it, from clicktivism to licktivism. Whatever works for you.
I realize that we all feel smothered by the inundation of negative political campaigns, misinformation and sheer volume of paper wasted on mailers, but consider this: people died for your right to vote. People in other parts of the world are dying to GET the right to vote.
I think you can take the time to exercise your very costly, very important right.
