Man, voting is awesome. When I was a wee little Awesome, maybe Corporal- or Private First Class Awesome, I used to think, "Heck, why should I vote? It's not like my vote is going to change anything."
Boy was I wrong.
The reason you vote is because your vote *does* matter. We live in a country run BY THE PEOPLEº. I mean, sure, America is a REPUBLIC, not a Democracy like everyone says, but it's still REPRESENTATIVE GOVERNMENT!
The reason we vote is to have our voices heard. You might be a little Awesome, a little Chuck, or heck, even a little Morgan. But if all the little Morgans of the world get out there and vote, then guess what?
The little bearded guy in all of us gets Free Pizza Fridays (or whatever it was the half-pint furball was campaigning for)!
Me? I'm supporting a measure to mandate National Awesome Awareness Day. If you don't like it (or you think there are too many government imposed holidays already), vote against it. I don't mind; it's your choice!
Majority rules in this country, bro (or sis). If you don't vote, you don't have a voice. And I don't wanna hear you complaining when the Jeff Barnes of the world pass their ballot initiative for No Pants Tuesdays.
So make yourself heard. Go to the polls and VOTE AWESOME.
*at least most of us do, but I'm guessing if you're reading this someplace where voting isn't allowed, you're probably not supposed to be on the Internet either. That's not awesome.
