Please folks, vote. With the upcoming election, it distresses and saddens me very much indeed that there will most likely, as in past elections, be a high number of people who will not be voting and a larger portion of those who have never voted.
We are all guilty of complaining about the politicians for whatever reason – some justified and others maybe not as justified, but living in a democracy sure beats that of living in a dictatorship with terrorism at every turn.
I feel very strongly that those who will not be voting this election - in particular, those who have never voted at all - should think real hard about what people have done to give us a democratic country and our freedom, especially the people who never came back home. I hope at least some of these people will vote. It would certainly be the least they could do.
