Why You Must Vote!

DanPictureTLC20062-768x1024From AMAC’s President, Dan Weber

YOU WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN MOST STATES IN THIS ELECTION!

Seven states are so close that the control of the senate is in balance.

Many governors are running for re-election and the control of state legislations hangs on the outcome of this election. Think of this….there is a real possibility that a future president will win his or her first election for a much lower position this year. If we don’t elect good young candidates – we won’t have great candidates to lead our nation in the future.

SO VOTE…AND BRING YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY WITH YOU!

I drafted a “Why Vote” document, but life interrupts – largely to the Recession!! You may be interested in draft below: ALL U.S. CITIZENS SHOULD VOTE IN EVERY ELECTION, ESPECIALLY ON NOVEMBER 3RD, TO: 1. Thank the God we worship and trust and/or the principles or ideas that motivate and sustain us, for our amazing country – a country so good that immigrants yet come in droves, risk their lives, pay their life’s savings, climb giant fences and walk for weeks to join in our “American Dream”; 2. Remember that the USA was the first country ever organized based on… Read more »

Well, the decision to limit commenting this week just got blown out of the water after reading all the comments on this article, so here goes: To BOB BARD and all those who vote Libertarian, do you not understand that Libertarians are not all alike? Some follow the CATO line and advocate for those positions that are often anathma to mainstream (or what was mainstream) sentiments, like open borders, gay marriage, abortion, trade agreements that are but regional unions that can and will be joined to other regional UN sponsored inititives, while others are of the Paleo-Libertarian or Classic Liberal… Read more »

Voting is not only a Right but a Responsibility. I would go as far as to say a Requirement but that would be infringing on your Rights whether or not you want to vote. The Right and Freedom of Self Expression includes the option to vote, to express yourself or your opinion. Today, there’s no excuse not to vote as there are numerous opportunities to vote, by mail, early voting, more places to vote, transportation assistance, voter photo ID assistance and others. The participants in the politics are well publicized, mud slinging and all, and should be visible to all… Read more »

How does one become informed on what the Supreme Court candidates stand for? I try to be an informed voter, but I’m having trouble locating this particular piece of information.

We early voted this morning. There are times I think “why bother” to vote – but then, if there’s a shred of hope that my vote might help remove some career moron from office, I rush to cast it. I do know that every NO VOTE is a VOTE for a person you don’t want — so vote your party even if the guy is a confessed serial rapist. (well, maybe don’t vote for that one!) All I do know for sure is, if there isn’t something or someone to turn this country in a different direction soon; we’re all… Read more »

WOW! All these complaints. How many of you have gotten involved? Not many, I’ll bet. You sit there and spout off, but don’t do a thing about it. How are your representatives supposed to know how you feel if you don’t tell them. On top of that, your complaining has discouraged others from voting. So, a lot of this blame is squarely YOURS! Yup, I’m a senior, and handicapped, and yes, I have ALWAYS voted and contacted my representatives when I disagree. You know what I’m told? They didn’t know how people felt about some of these issues. No one… Read more »

Even though it’s a choice between Tweedledum and Tweedledee, I’m still going to vote. Since we still get to pick our poisons, I pick the less poisonous viper.
Besides, since liberalism is a form of criminal-level insanity, I vote for the candidate who doesn’t qualify for confinement in an institution.
I often wonder if it really matters, since ALL candidates MUST be approved by the New World Order gangsters to ensure that THEIR agenda is the ONLY agenda…….

Why bother to vote? This is not a democracy and whomever is elected will be or soon be just another unethical thief. Human nature. You can only hope for the less of two evils Even I fell for the OBAMA promises (somewhat), after the damage Bush did and the damage(s) I knew McCain would most likely do. As for OBAMA, he has fulfilled all of his wishes. He has done what Hitler, Tojo and Stalin were never able to do. He has destroyed a once great nation. It will never escape or recover from all of the polices and social… Read more »

What really disgusts me of our so-called representatives is the predominance of law school educated buffoons that get elected! That’s 38% of the House and 57% of the Senate! These practioners of “reasonable doubt” are what’s wrong with our elected representatives. Of course, we don’t seem to have much choice when both party’s candidates are attorneys. I will always vote for the Republican, but it certainly leaves a bad taste in my mouth when the candidate went to law school! To me, this is the biggest problem I have with our elected officials today. These attorney politicians never seem to… Read more »

Unfortunately most common sense conservatives get wiped out by the rigid party line group in the primaries. So no reasonable candidates need apply. Voting for what’s chosen takes away all interest to vote. I don’t need an extreme conservative any more, than I need a liberal . So I do my duty, but with no interest.

Thank you AMAC. On the voting, I know everyone should vote, but sometimes it seems it doesn’t matter, the same crooks just keep getting in, you know the ones, the career politians. It gets very disgusting. And now that election time is here, you hear from every politian you never even heard of, “Vote for me”!!

It would be helpful if you would publish the names of the “SEVEN STATES” that you referred to where the election is so close that control the senate will be affected. (I think that is what you meant by the leading statement?!) That way, conservatives in those states can work extra hard to spread the word and get out the vote. It certainly would be a good idea if only the votes from legitimately registered voters would be counted.

We only have a one party government with two branches, Both branches stink as they vote the same way. We have been following the path of decline like the Roman Empire most of the last century and it is getting worse. We can not stop this decline because both Rep and Dem got us in the mess on purpose and neither one has enough integrity to even try to get us out. I see no reason vote for a rep or dem. For the last 30 years I have been voting a straight Libertarian ticket as my protest to bad… Read more »

HEY RIK,
WHEN CALIMEXICO COLLAPSES UNDER THE WEIGHT OF THE COMMIE-SOCIALIST REGIME,
COME TO OHIO WHERE THE 2ND AMENDMENT IS STILL RESPECTED AND THE STATE IS STILL
GOVERNED BY SANE REPS. THE COST OF LIVING HERE IS REASONABLE AND THE STATE IN-
COME TAX WILL LEAVE YOU WITH ENOUGH MONEY TO BUY WARM CLOTHES FOR OUR LESS
THAN WARM WINTERS. WE ALSO SPEAK ENGLISH.
GOOD LUCK, JOE

To RIK: It is estimated that four million Republicans stayed home in 2012 for the same “my-vote-don’t-count” reason you stated. So Romney lost, Obama won, and you now have the rest of the problems listed in your comment. Go vote RIK … lots of people died to give you that privilege and you already know the consequences of staying home.

Rik

Jeez, I live in the glorious, state of euphoric CALIMEXICO. Do you really think my vote counts for anything here? My state is overrun with jackasses and donkeys on steroids. I truly expect Obama to reside here after his reign ends in Washington and then become our next governor … How could he lose?
