Sunday Gratitude: The Vote

Thank you to the men and women who fought for and won my right to vote this November 6.

Thank you Victoria Claflin Woodhull, the first Woman to run for President, 1872

    1. I haven’t been this anxious since the AIDS epidemic. If this is what life in a tyranny feels like I hope the rest of America is as pained by it as I am and will vote on November 6 to put an end to it.

  1. Reblogged this on Writing and Music and commented:

    I hate to admit that I have not voted in an election in over nine years. I swore I wouldn’t ever again, because I feel that we are only led to believe we have a voice. But, after this post and Willie’s song, I will be at the polls in November!

  2. Hi Robert,
    Believe it or not, I’m originally from Texas. Willie has been a hero of mine for years. This video as great as it is, it pains me because it shows Willie is showing his age (85). You’ve got to love the song “Vote em out”.

Don't be shy, I love comments
