I can honestly tell you the last time I voted it was for Gore.
What can I say. I'm a Republican. Err I was. I was a straight ticket Republican.
Watching the elections that year something deep settled inside of me.
My vote doesn't count.
When it comes down to a Presidential election my vote doesn't count. Your vote doesn't count.
I don't believe in the electoral college voting system.
So I don't vote. I haven't registered to vote since Gore lost.
Do I care about what goes on in our country? Yes.
I don't withhold my vote because I don't care about who represents me. No I do.
I don't vote because I'm standing behind up for a belief that my vote counts. And each vote for President of the United States should count.
You see I'm from Indiana and Indiana is a Republican state. But say the Democrats are in power. Everyone in Indiana votes for a Republican but the Democrats have power. So thus all of Indiana electoral votes go to the Democratic President Elect. Even though the Republicans have said they want a Republican.
If the state is mixed you can't split the vote.
And don't get me started on those who paper vote and mail it in...
I don't vote because I don't believe we truly live in a democratic union where the people get the say of what they truly want.
We don't truly have a free country.
We may have certain freedoms I am grateful for.
I suppose you can say this ends with "I have a dream".
I have a dream one day my vote will count. And when it does. I'll vote.
