Why vote? In one word—FREEDOM!

VoteFreedom

Yes, that is the simple answer, but WE have a tendency of complicating things and may completely miss the simple. Perhaps the word “freedom,” needs some explaining?

If you have ever met, know someone or may one day meet someone, for which the following applies, then maybe this will help persuade them? If the shoe fits, then maybe the following will help persuade you?

I have heard and know people who didn’t vote or have never voted. There have been a few times that I did not vote, so the following is, for me as well.

Because of freedom, each of us are free to vote and we each have the freedom not to. But before continuing, I would just like to point out some very important facts about freedom.

We are NOT the first republic, but we are the oldest still in existence. Search the history of US and you will discover that what made our meteoric rise possible, as both an economic and a military world power is due to, FREEDOM. It is very simple. Where there is the freedom to think and dream and produce the things we have and have produced, for the world is because, WE the people are free! Therefore, WE have the incentive to produce, innovate and develop technologies, products and services and even produce food, like no other nation on earth! This freedom is NOT free. Men and women have paid for it and are still paying for it, to keep us FREE! If there were no other reasons than for them, each of us should vote! Freedom is NOT FREE. Someone(s) has to pay to protect it and WE should pay by voting to keep it!

I have selected the following videos, for all of us.

Dom Roso, a former U.S. Navy Seal, begins with a very somber wake-up call. Look beyond the sponsor of this video (the NRA – National Rife Association) and focus instead on, the message by someone who knows what he is talking about. He lived it on the front lines!

“Do We Deserve the WWII Generations Sacrifice?”

The next video is also, very sobering. As you watch it, think too of all the wars our soldiers fought before those on the video. Think on the Civil War and all others before it and then where our Country began, during the Revolutionary War, around 1776. FREEDOM has been fought for and paid for, for as long as the heart has cried for FREEDOM!

As many whine about how hard it is to sing or remember the words of our National anthem, listen to this five-year old little girl and behold her enthusiasm singing, The Star Spangled Banner.

As many may now grow up without ever learning and saying the Pledge of Allegiance because, it is thought to be ‘separation of church and state,’ due to just two words, “under God,” think about this next video from 1969.

Red Skelton, 1969 CBS television

To learn and sing our National Anthem, to recite the Pledge of Allegiance and to vote, seems pretty simple and the least WE can do, for those that pledge with their lives, to keep US FREE. What can they fight to protect, if we will not fight to keep our nation FREE?

And for them, what more can we do? If you see a soldier, thank them, help them, drive them to a polling place and ask them about why you should vote! Feed them and support them, where ever they are!

Our big holidays are coming up. Many of our soldiers will be far from home while we be in comfort, during the holidays. Would you like to bring a taste of home to some of those serving, far away from home? Check out and donate to the GI Bar-b-que. see:

And finally, we’re almost done here. The Day is Done. Our last videos are familiar to every soldier and to many that have ever heard its powerful and meaningful sounds. As this plays, read the lyrics!

Taps

These many soldiers buried at Arlington National Cemetery and all over the world, were often given a recorded version of their beloved TAPS. These 33 buglers believed, every soldier deserves a ‘LIVE’ playing TAPS over their brow as they rest, having given the ultimate sacrifice for you and I. FREEDOM is NOT FREE! Every soldier believes freedom is worth dying for. Can we not honor them and believe and vote that freedom is, worth living for?
