I just received my absentee ballot in the mail. My 18th birthday fell on an election year and I am proud to say that I have voted in every presidential election since then.
It is my belief that if you don't vote you have no right to complain about the government. So pretty much I vote just for the right to complain. *snicker*
Being in Korea I am greatly sheltered from the political media frenzy going on in the U.S.
But now that my ballot is in front of my face I have a great deal of research to do to catch up on the topics. So research is what I am doing. I have no idea how I will vote...but I WILL vote because it is a great privilege that I do not take for granted.
So no matter what your political leanings are I encourage everyone to get out there and VOTE!
It's your right! It's your privilege!
