America’s Character is on the Line

On Tuesday, November 6th and everyday thereafter, America’s character, values, and morals will be on display for the entire world to see.

Each voter, no matter their party affiliation, will help shape the view of this nation’s character next week.

Put yourself in someone else’s shoes or someone else’s socioeconomic status when you go vote. Would you want your neighbors to care for you if you lived differently? Well, vote like it.

I don’t want anyone to give me anything except a helping hand from time to time, and I don’t want anything for free. I don’t want to take anything from your children and grandchildren, and I don’t want you to take anything from mines.

I just want to live free from duress. I don’t want to be hated or scapegoated. I just want a chance…an equal opportunity to pursue the desires of my heart. I wish the same my neighbors.

I want to be safe. I want to take care of my country, and I need for my country to take care of me. I don’t want any trouble from America, and I don’t want cause America any either.

So when you go vote next week if you haven’t already, please keep these things in mind as you cast it.

This is a vote of a generation.

Your vote will either highlight the true America, or create a new America. We are either going to move forward, or we will continue to go backwards.

Vote wisely. Vote thoughtfully. And vote as if your life and freedom depends on it, because it does.

You see, everybody here in America ain’t really for Team America. Some people here are only out for themselves, their bank accounts, and/or their privilege. They always are, and they always will be. I hope they become a powerless majority next week.

Your. Vote. Counts.

Think of it this way, when it comes to deciding our national character, understand your personal character and the nation’s character are one in the same.

Each American voter’s character is on the line too.

Money can’t buy you a good character. Neither can a great PR firm (Well, not for long anyway). What you are inside will come oozing out of you eventually.

I hope we choose to give America good character next week.

The choice is yours, so please make your vote count.

America, her poor, her sick, her hungry, and her broken are counting on ya. Today it’s them. Tomorrow it could be you.
