The Day We Fight Back!

Oooh, you probably think I'm going to talk about the impending release of "Independence Day" on video. But no, even though millions of people in the U.S. will rent it, I actually want to talk about something that less people will do... going out and voting in the upcoming elections.

Tuesday, approximately 4 out of 10 eligible voters will show up at the polls and elect a president as well as a number of assorted senators and representatives. It's a time when the balance of power could shift to the Democrats, even more in favor of the Republicans, or most likely stay just close enough to center so we can maintain the bickering and the status quo with no real movement because no one really has the power to do anything but frustrate the other side. Regardless of who you vote for, a clear vision of leadership which can be implemented seems about as probable as me praying for wings tonight and flying tomorrow.

Let's look at the major parties:

Then we have the parties everyone knows have no chance:

Of course there are lots of other organizations and parties vying for your vote or trying to tell you how to vote on Tuesday, and this bleak picture I've provided may convince you that it's useless to vote at all. Well, that's not my message. I just tried to attack everyone equally. But I'll tell you one important fact. The way evil people will take over the world is through good people standing by and doing nothing.

Whatever your philosophy, whatever your ideology, whatever your dogma, you have to believe in something. If you haven't already, you have a day-plus to find a candidate or candidates who support what you believe in, and it is not just your right, it is your duty to vote for them. To paraphrase Albert Einstein's comments on the McCarthy hearings... If we do not act, we deserve nothing better than the slavery that is intended for us.

Good luck!
