Into the Frayed ends of Sanity...

SparksNation

As we enter the last stretch of the election season there is something that is vitally important to remember.... The thing that makes the United States exceptional...and I truly believe it is... is two-fold... first we vote on our choice of leader and enjoy the genuine luxury of a peaceful exchange of power every 4- 8 years... and we can protest without fear of disappearing or being tortured. 

That being said... if you don't vote or have some sort of "protest" vote planned for this cycle, personally I see that as and abdication of the duties of citizen of a democracy. If your answer is you don't like the choices... then vote for all the issues and candidates you CAN support and leave the others blank. If that's too much work then you have to ask yourself is this act of protest genuine or is it symptomatic of overwhelm or personal laziness? If you think the choice is always between the lesser of 2 evils then you must ask yourself, how much evil are you comfortable supporting and know that by not voting you automatically support the greater Evil in two ways... first you do not support the lesser and there for shore up the numbers of the greater and secondly you help create the illusion of a lack of mandate that is always used to undermine issues that progressives hold dear. 

Also, as ugly or uncomfortable as some protest may be, always remember that the quickest way to the solution the likes of which the Black Lives Matter movement and others are seeking is to listen to the concerns and seek to support the elements you have the most clever ability to effect. Calling your representative is one, social media is another...but ultimately educated voting is the long term solution... one that liberals and progressives have been far too quick to abdicate for far too long.... that list of judges that you kind of glaze over every election.. I say is the most important vote on your ballot...and the one most people ignore or randomize...

Thanks

Sparks

    Music brings people together. Why is there a need for every candidate to have a theme music? It is for people to associate a particular song to a candidate. But it should not be the only reason to remember or vote a candidate. Choose based on credentials. Look at their experience and qualifications at the resume center.

    In the event that you've never composed a lot, propelling straight into a novel likely won't work: it is possible that you'll come up short on steam inside a couple of parts, or you'll continue Management Essay writing however you'll wind up with a story that needs a dreadful parcel of work to make it publishable.

    I totally agree. Today, people are very closed in themselves and communicate little with each other, I believe that the more we communicate, the easier it is for us to experience problems. Lira, manager at papernow

    An omniscient narrator can quickly proceed too rapidly among story-lines, inducing emotional whiplash for subscribers. To steer clear of that, remember our trick about getting your outline at heart in any way times! Like that, even in the event that you've got an omniscient narrator, they must not get too much of course. Now we're becoming the process-based writing hints. Write as far as potential is just one of the guidelines you are surely fed up with hearing, however why it's very prevalent is because it works! The only real way you are going to finish writing a publication is by simply sitting and writing it, therefore focus on your own narrative as frequently as possible. Write whenever and where you've got a little downtime -- at the bus, even at a very long line at the food store, awaiting the laundry room, etc. By: Help With Dissertation
