We have liberty, do we? How can we make sure we continue to have it? How to make sure that the government really represents us? We have to make our voice heard and the easiest way is by voting. We take for granted the liberty that we enjoy in our Country and for that reason many citizens don’t vote, others feel that it does not matter because things won’t change. Government don’t change because we don’t make it change, we don’t make our voice heard.
As responsible citizens we have to get involve in the voting process so our government does not become an autocracy. Part of getting involved is to know the candidates, make sure you know what they stand for, their background and the people they relate to. If this is the type of person that you want to represent us vote for him or her. Make sure that you don’t compromise your values and integrity.
