To vote or not to vote?

There is no democracy without the vote. If you don't vote, you cast your vote against democracy.

Don’t just vote!

"Too often..., we elect people who we assume are going to make fundamental changes, and then we go home and do whatever we were doing before without realizing that an election is just the beginning of the challenge. They need all our help and support if they are going to succeed." -- Robert Reich, 10/21/13
