I exercised today. Shocking, right? Not really. I exercised my right to vote.
I like following politics, especially in an election year. My philosophy (as a US citizen) is that you can’t complain about the state of your government if you don’t vote. Today is Michigan’s GOP primary, as well as Arizona’s, which means I have been BOMBARDED with phone calls recently. I think I got 12 yesterday alone. I know there are a lot of commercials on TV as well, but thankfully, I don’t watch much TV. Even then, I’m very glad today is finally here to give me a small break from the heavy campaigning. Living in a swing state, I’m sure it will be bad come November.
However…I have to remind myself that it all serves a purpose. They want us to care, to listen, to get involved and make an educated decision.
So if you happen to live in Michigan (like me) or Arizona and are a Republican, please go exercise this amazing right and VOTE. And for those from the next 20 states who will vote in the next month, be ready. We’ve been given a voice. So let’s use it. :)
Republicans: If you aren’t sure when your primary is, check out this list here.
Everyone else: November will come soon enough.
