Why Minorities Have to Vote in 2014

Are you one of the many strange creatures I've heard of that has never voted? Have you been deceived into believing that your vote doesn't count? Well, it does. Did you know the best way to control a person does not involve force? Discouragement will keep a person from ever trying to do better, despite the fact that they know better. It takes a lot less energy to keep you from trying to vote than it does to stop you by force, doesn't it? Take the shackles of your mind and let your voice be heard.

If you have ever complained about the current state of affairs in this country (Travon Martin Verdict, Health Care, Education or Tax ) then by all means, either vote or shut up! The time to speak is at the polls. Vote now or forever hold your peace.

If you're a parent, then this is more of an issue of privilege for you. It's an absolute obligation. A good parent leaves an inheritance for their children. What will your choices pass down?


Voting is a privilege that was hard to come by. It was many years that women and minorities could not let their voices be heard in the political arena. People were brutalized and murdered so that you and I can have the luxury of going to the polls to vote, free of charge and without anyone standing in our way. Come to think of it, we don't even have to physically be there. Have you ever heard of the term, "absentee"? The state of affairs is out of control in this country.

Here's the take-home message: we need change, and we need it yesterday.

Every election all we hear is, We Need Change. I thought when Obama was elected that was the big change everyone was talking about.
I guess we need to change back next election.
