Election Day is fast approaching and is a day all registered American voters should step up to the plate and vote for the candidate of their choice. But there are many who believe their vote doesn't count or the candidates elected will only maintain the status quo of the rich and powerful and line their pockets.
Well, there are those who are running for office who want to make a difference and honestly want to help those who are hurting. This is not going to happen if we don't vote.
Whatever happens and whoever gets elected will affect all of us. When the wrong person gets into office this could mean an increase in taxes, cuts in public services and a decline in all we hold most dear.
So please get and vote, for every vote does really count.
