I’ve heard it all before.
“My one vote doesn’t matter.”
Florida was won, a Presidency decided, and a future set because 537 Americans honored the sacrifice of their forefathers and voted. Just a scant handful, in a nation of 300 million.
Your vote matters.
Perhaps you remain unconvinced of the power of your one vote. Fair enough. If that is how you feel, don’t vote for yourself. Vote to honor your family members who have worn the uniform of you nation. Vote to honor the thousands of Americans in combat outposts right now that may not be able to vote, because they want to protect that right for you.
Millions of Americans have put their lives on the line to ensure your liberty. Hundreds of thousands of them died. Ten of thousands of them never came home, and lie in sacred ground on foreign shores or in the black of oceans deep.
Vote for those who fell at Lexington, Tripoli, New Orleans, Gettysburg, Belleau Wood, Normandy, Chosin, Hue, Beirut, Fallujah, the Korengal Valley, and Benghazi.
Vote to honor the fallen.
Vote for the broken.
Vote for those who have seen the worst in man, but would do it all again, for you and this Republic.
Validate their sacrifice.
Prove that you were worthy.
