Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert. Isaiah 43:19 KJV
“Science investigates; religion interprets. Science gives man knowledge, which is power; religion gives man wisdom, which is control. Science deals mainly with facts; religion deals mainly with values. The two are not rivals.”
—“A Tough Mind and a Tender Heart” sermon, August 30, 1959
The time of the year is upon us, where citizens across The United States of America now have the chance to exercise their rights and vote into office the candidates they believe will best represent them as Mayors, Governors, and congressional representatives in both The House and The Senate.
This Tuesday, November 6th 2018 is Election Day. Commonly referred to as The Midterms, this marks a day where we’ll essentially see either The Republican party maintain their dominance across the country, or The Democrats gaining much needed representation and control in The House or The Senate, to begin their process of amending many of the decisions Republicans have made.
For The Democrats, it is crucial that enough representatives are elected to seize control of either The House or The Senate, or both. If not, and if their campaigning fails as it did during the Presidential Election of 2016, where Donald Trump managed to seize victory over long-time Government server Hillary Clinton, The United States of America could begin to see policy implementation by The Republicans ramp up. Americans could also see the eradication of The Obama Era Healthcare Plan, an end to Birthright Citizenship, and tremendous cuts to spending on Social aid (Medicaid and Social Security).
It is important to vote.
Regardless of your party affiliation, if you feel concerned about a topic, or wish for change in your neighborhood and society, it is important to vote. As a registered Democrat, I am eager to vote, and I hope to see The Democrats pull off significant power grabs in Congress. As someone who voted in 2016 for a Democrat to be President, I’ve learned that polls are are no longer a trustworthy source to grasp voter turnout demographics. This year, the message is clear: go out and vote.
Come Tuesday, we decide the direction our country moves in. Vote for what you believe in. If Donald Trump does not sit right with you, and if you demand change right now, go out and vote. Your voice can be heard, and your power to vote can and will change the entire course of this Nation. It is of utmost importance, and I urge anyone who reads this, to go out and vote.
