As We Prepare...

...To exercise our democratic right to VOTE, we must remember those who made the ultimate sacrificed so that we may continue to enjoy the greatest Country in the world - AMERICA.

So many people today take for granted...our right to VOTE! And for one reason or another decided not to VOTE, forfeiting their duty.

We must remember - there was a time in our great Country that:

Blacks "legally" could not VOTE. Technically, they had the right to vote since the 1870's when the 15th Amendment was passed. Unfortunately, it took until the Voters Rights Act in 1965 to remove many of the unfair methods of testing and intimidation that prevented many Blacks from voting. Today we have seen a tremendous increase in the Black VOTE. This is great for AMERICA.

Women vote in Oklahoma CityWhat about Women?

Well, passed by Congress June 4, 1919, and ratified on August 18, 1920, the 19th amendment guarantees all American women the right to vote. Achieving this milestone required a lengthy and difficult struggle; victory took decades of agitation and protest.

Today women have also taken an active role in the political future of our great "Nation Under God". And that too is awesome for our AMERICA.

The TRUTH today is that People from ALL walks of life such as, Latinos of all regions of the world, and Asians of all regions of the world, and the blacks and women we have already discuss, as well as all the other nationalities of the worlds, help make up the fabric which encompasses all of AMERICA.

Sadly, we have a right and duty - provided by sacrifice, which many still do not exercise...but when things are not to their liking, they seem to feel they have a right to do not!

Unless you take part - you are part of the problem...complain you may not!!!

We certainly will not tell anyone who to vote for. We will however, suggest our preference and choice with explanations to illuminate the best candidates in any given election. But ultimately - it's your decision at the polls (considering that you VOTE) that will make a difference.

Don't concern yourself if together "We The People" make an incorrect selection, because we can make a correction when their term is up, or recall them with reason.

What is critically important is that we exercise our duty, our privilege...
...our right to VOTE!!!
Beginning on May 21...

...God Bless America.
