Tomorrow, The Election

Posted on the 05 November 2012 by Anthonyhymes @TheWrongWing

Tomorrow the United States of America votes. At stake, the control of the most influential country in the world, and the application of a vision of how America the country should operate itself. One candidate has the possibility to continue the progress that has been made over the course of our history to keep our nation great. The other has the ability to take us back into that history, as if the past 50 years never happened. We cannot let ourselves make the wrong choice.

Political theory is abstract, disconnected from time. Political reality is linear, each year building upon the one that came directly before it. The only thing that we can do, that we can or will ever be able to do, is control what we do today. The past is gone, the future is our responsibility. What we do today is our character.

Millions of Americans will vote tomorrow, in an exercise of the greatest right that society has ever created. Around the world people sacrifice their lives everyday to get anywhere close to where democracy for America is today. We take it for granted, we often feel disenfranchised, that the mechanism is too big for our little arms, our singular voice.

But there is nothing without a vote. There is no progression, there is no adaptation, there is no collective voice that is not started by one, and amplified by many. The vote is not merely a bit of ink and stock paper. It is a decision, one that we make for ourselves, which determines the leader of our collective wills.
