What Happens When you Don’t Vote?

Dear Friends,

If you’re like me, you have become increasingly frustrated-even angry-with the dysfunction and deafness of Government.  The President and the US Congress have let us down.  Politicians in Washington simply don’t listen.  How can we have representative governance when the government neither governs within their constitutional limits nor represents us with common sense policies?

It is time for a change.  Really.  Some would say “well, just vote them all out; Republicans and Democrats alike”.  I would suggest that would be completely unhelpful.  To be sure-as a Republican-I recognize that many in my own party are guilty of failing to represent us.  But I also know this: If the US Congress is placed firmly back in the hands of Democrats like Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi, there absolutely will be NO change at all.  Moreover, a liberal US Senate will be there to assist President Obama as he increasingly moves toward unconstitutional “rule by executive order”.  We must put the US Senate in conservative hands and build on the Republican majority in the House so that they can advance policies we must have to get the country back on the right track.

For me, I plan to vote for my Congressman Rob Wittman http://www.robwittman.com/and my friend Ed Gillespie for US Senate http://edforsenate.com/.  That’s my choice.  But what about you?  I hope you are not among folks who say “it doesn’t matter”.  It does matter.  It matters because of two words:  Harry Reid.

Reid has bottled up over 300 bills the House PASSED in the US Senate to “protect” Democrat Senators from voting one way or the other.  He has turned the US Senate into one of the most dysfunctional bodies in legislative history.  He is a partisan beyond words and completely out of step with you and me.

So please, do not stay home.  Do not succumb to cynicism.  Don’t fall for the line, “It doesn’t matter what you do, things won’t change”.  That is precisely what liberals and so-called progressives WANT you to do.  Please vote.  And vote Republican because when you vote for third parties you are actually helping the liberals, like it or not.

Finally, for those of you who are motivated to vote-like I am-please go to a neighbor or friend and enlist them to vote too.  Tell them that this is a key moment in the history of the nation.  Let them know that inaction IS action that will keep us on the same horrible path we are on today.

This Election Day must be known as the day America said “Enough!”  The way we do that is simple.  VOTE!
