Vote: That’s All That Matters Today

Posted by on Nov 2, 2010

I’ll be talking the mid-term elections tonight on FBN with Cavuto. There’ll be discussion of Republicans, Democrats, gains, losses, international perspectives… But it comes down – for me at any rate – to this.

I do not care who you vote for. However if you are lucky enough to have the vote, you must vote. It is quite simply a moral crime for you not to. In America, universal enfranchisement is still less than a hundred years old. I truly believe that countries such as Australia, where it is compulsory to vote, absolutely have it right. If you dislike the choices, spoil your ballot paper, register your disgust.

In my view, unless you get yourself to a polling station today, you have no right to have an opinion. You think you won’t be making a difference so there’s no point in voting? Well you certainly won’t be if you don’t exercise your right at the ballot box. What you do today will impact not just your hometown and state, not just the rest of the country, but the world.

The world needs America to lead. It is still the world’s only superpower. It still represents freedom in a way that is impressive to all.

So exercise that freedom for those who still don’t have it around the world. Vote.
