A Brief, Final Motivation to Vote Today

Today is Election Day, and if you're sitting there reading this and you still haven't voted, you're doing it wrong.

Polling stations are open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. If those hours don't work for you, leave work early, take a sick day, take a vacation day, whatever you need to do. A few hours' worth of pay is not nearly as important as voting to prevent your income from falling even more than it already has under Obama. If you work at a job that requires at least a week's notice before you take a vacation day, you should have done that a week ago. Leave work now (well, after you finish reading this), and go vote. If your boss tries to stop you, tell him you'll be back in an hour and you'll stay late or come in early the next day.

If you are a Christian and you plan on either sitting out the election or voting for the Jesus'-name-covering Obama, you're doing it wrong. If you believe God puts rulers into power, you're correct, but He uses people in order to do that. The reason Christianity-attacking Democrats win elections is because Christians don't vote in as large of a number as they ought to. It is not God Who gives us the notion that we should not vote, but the Devil. If you're a Christian, it's your duty to vote.

If you're a Libertarian who refuses to vote, or you are voting for Gary Johnson, you’re doing it wrong. Know that you are allowing a pro-Obama vote to go through without being canceled out. And as a Libertarian, you probably know you're pretty smart (I would agree), and so you should also understand, then, that Romney and Obama are two very different candidates. There is a stark contrast between not just most of their policies, but in their respective worldviews. A vote for Romney is one small step closer to Libertarianism, however small it may be. A vote for anybody but Romney is a giant leap away from Libertarianism, because if Obama wins, kiss Libertarianism goodbye for good; Obamacare will be here to stay.

Remember, keep your eyes peeled while you're waiting in line at the voting station. If you have a smartphone or any phone that can record video or take pictures, have your finger ready to press the Record button if you see or hear anything suspicious. With all of Eric Holder's successful efforts to block voter-fraud-prevention measures, and with the voter-fraud history of the Democratic Party, you can be sure there will be shenanigans.

And just for the record, my Electoral College prediction: Obama 243, Romney 295.
