In 2008, there were 12 million more voters who voted than those who voted in the 2012 election.

Many people in the world cherish the right to vote and to select the direction their government will go. As a nation, we have a history of very low percentage turnout compared to other nations around the world.

Apparently those 12 million who didn't vote couldn't care less where our nation is headed.

Shame, shame, shame on those 12 million — and many other millions — who didn't vote and apparently couldn't care less. You let the politicians call the shots, but when you don't like what is going on, you don't care to vote.

You should either stop complaining or get out and vote.

    Yes Vote....
    Just remember to vote NO..
    Think about this......How often does the name of the 'Bill' NOT reflect what the new law says, and You and I do not have the time or education to inspect every sentence in a new law !

    Vote yes if you trust our politicians to do the right and honorable thing.
    Vote No if YOU can't understand the new 'law'.
    Vote NO until new 'laws' are drafted so that the usual high school graduate can understand them.
    Vote NO until You feel You are in control.
