Every Voice Counts
I vote because I have the privilege of being born in a country where it is possible. Women have not had the vote for all that long, those who went before fought for the right, I have the responsibility to use it.
I vote because it is my right and my responsibility to do what I can to have a voice in our country. I am only one person but I have a voice with my vote. If I shrug that off or shirk my responsibility I am not only risking my future but the future of those I love and cherish. I vote because it is the right thing to do.
I vote because of the sacrifices made by those before me, they deserve more than our indifference. If we give in to our apathy we will leave a legacy of abdication to our children, don't let that happen.
Democracy is too important to be ignored. We need to challenge politicians who do not have the interests of their constituents at heart. Those who hold Parliament in contempt hold the people in contempt and should be voted from office.
