Tomorrow is Super Tuesday. Do you know where your polling place is?
No? Well, follow this link: Vote411.org.
Then, tomorrow, go and vote in the primary.
Because it's important. Because voting is the single most important thing we can do, on the individual level, in politics in this or any nation. Vote for who you want, not for the person you think everyone else wants. The primary is your chance to take a stand, instead of voting for the person chosen for you, choose yourself. I will be.
The twins will be right there with us.
Colorado will finally get a chance to make a difference instead of not mattering at all. Last time, the primary winner had already been selected by the time CO got to cast a single primary vote. Realistically, kinda makes it pointless to caucus then, doesn't it? This time, however, we're going to be in there with 21 other states and I want my vote to be counted.
You should, too.
Why? Because everything is political.
If you haven't noticed, the price you pay at the pump? Politics are involved to determine those prices: high or low. Who receives subsidies and who doesn't? That air you breathe and water you drink? Politics are involved to determine how many pollutant parts per million are allowed to be in it. That meat you like to eat? Politics determines the fact that less than 1% of all cattle raised in the US is ever tested for Mad Cow Disease. Those vegetables you eat? Politics are involved in allowing genetically modified crops to be produced and used in the foods you buy. Like organic food? Politics are involved in determining the very definition of organic. You don't think cloned animals or veggies raised in sludge (treated human waste) should be called "organic"? Then guess what?
Get out and vote.
There's a lot more at stake than you probably realize.
