Share and post your own! WHY DO YOU VOTE?
Like/reblog. Pledge to vote. I’M WATCHING YOU!
my girl Juliet right here she’s amazing
I struggle with this.
I contradict myself all the time and my opinion changes.
It’s important to vote, yes, because a piece of garbage like Romney should not get into office.
But at the same time, my people CAN’T vote. They can, have and will die for the U.S. and despite that, they still can’t vote. They are abused and forgotten and not even given equal rights. We can be drafted and set to other countries to die and we can’t even vote for the commander in chief.
That’s why I struggle. That’s not fair no matter how you look at it. My people die and can’t vote. And some people say that I should vote for them, but my voice…my vote is my own. My voice is not the voices of my people. The voices of Puerto Ricans are all distinct and every last one of them should have the right to express that.
But we don’t.
And that’s not fair.
