    On this special page goes this needed note
    to remind it’s time for us to get out and vote.
    If we just stay idle and watch this vote pass
    there is no doubt we’ll be kicked in the ***.
    Although it’s only one, your vote still counts;
    think Florida and you’ll see to what it amounts.
    This is your right and your duty paid in blood,
    don’t trample the fight into indifferent mud.
    Make a difference with this Tuesday’s ballot
    do what is needed and fill the election box.
    Don’t cop out with some indifferent excuse
    and then start to holler when you get the blues.
    Vote! It’s your voice, it’s your self speaking aloud
    Make a difference and vote, no matter which crowd.


    Vote!

    a bunch won't

    unfortunately--a bunch of our folks won't vote--some of our top entertainers, athletes and stars don't vote--one vote doesn't seem like much--but it is like a finger--it isn't much until you put five of them together and make a fist that anyone notices--get out and vote--vote!

    Thanks for this important reminder Ra. So many people died for this right to vote. If for no other reason, we owe it to them to cast a vote and be heard.

    Speak on it

    cause I will be at the polls when they open. hell i may even help em set up. It's a **** shame that people don't vote, but they be the main ones complainin bout this that and the other. I have heard so many lame excuses like "If I vote, I can get called for jury duty" if you have a registered car tag you can get called for jury duty.

    Yeah I'm voting cause I be damned if they gone keep letting all these people who "meet certain status" not pay taxes. Nawl dawg yo *** work then yo *** pay tax. just cause ya check gotta few xtra zeros behind it don't make you betta than me or anyone else.



    Just sayin is all
