Well it is finally here....election day. The chance to make your voice heard. The excuses that I have heard from people make my head want to explode." My vote doesn't relly count anyway." "He's just going to get assasinated in office anyway why vote for him?" "The lines will be too long." I've never registered to vote ...who wants to be called up for jury duty?" " Not registered, don't want to get drafted if they reinstate the draft." Really, people really???? Are these reasons not to vote? this election will change history as we know it. If one side wins(the side I'm on) we will have the first African American president. If the other side wins we will have the first female vice president. Anyway you look at it this is history in the making and as for me I will not be standing on the sidelines making excuses. I will be casting my vote, making sure that those who came before me fighting for the right to vote did not fight in vain.
