If you don't think your vote counts, or that elections matter, check this out...

FREMONT, Neb. -- A 12 year old girl who wears a Rosary necklace was banned from wearing it by her school district after police told officials it's also being worn by gang members.

So, let me get this straight - if a criminal decides to wear a cross, the cross must be banned. If a criminal decides to have pierced ears, then pierced ears will be banned. And if someone else misuses the American flag, then that, too, would be banned. This is exactly the absurd, warped mentality of officials who ban the Rosary necklace from being worn by a religious person for no other reason than it is also worn by less desireable folks.

So, what does this have to do with voting and elections? Think about it - in NO case have conservative officials ever banned religious items. In NO case have conservatives ever taken away a Christmas tree or a Nativity display, or banned Silent Night from a school Christmas concert, or ban public Christmas decorations, as was done in certain liberal-run communities lately.

It is not conservatives who try to tell you how to live, what to eat and whether or not you can have salt on your food. It is not conservatives who try to dictate whether or not you can pass on having health insurance. And it is not conservatives who tell you that you cannot grow herbs because they look too much like weeds (as was the case in a liberal Colorado community). And it was not conservatives who fined a Georgia man for giving away his extra veggies from his garden to his neighbors, or closed down a child's lemonade stand. Or prevent Girl Scouts from selling cookies, or Boy Scouts from using a public area.

Yes, voting - and elections - matter. And we see proof of that every day, in every community. Not just national elections, but also state and even community elections.

Only you can decide whether or not you want others directing and controlling your every move (liberal nanny state), or whether you prefer to have the freedom to make the choices that are right for you. No matter which side of the street you are on, you need to get out and stand up for your beliefs by going to the voting booth and casting a ballot to protect YOUR interests. If you do not, you will end up at the mercy of SPECIAL interests that will make your life miserable.

Just one thing - regardless of actual issues, when you walk into that voting both, think about ONE thing - do you want to be free, or do you want to be a drone? If you answer that question honestly, and vote accordingly, you will automatically be voting for the  issues that are right for you.

/Yes, voting to be free does have consequences. As a free person, you can win or you can lose. You can get rich, or go broke. You will starve if you refuse to work. Such are the possible outcomes of FREE CHOICE. By the same token, voting to be a nanny-state drone also has its consequences - the loss of freedom being the biggie. Maybe you won';t "lose" in the classic sense, but you will lose. You will lose the opportunity to win. You will lose the incentive to excel. You will lose self-esteem. You will lose individual rights in exchange for group rights.

You decide. But do so at the voting booth, because that is the only place it matters.
