GET OUT & VOTE..IT MATTERS

vote2

It’s no surprise that election day is 13 days away, it’s no surprise that many  are not really feeling the two presidential candidates & have said “I’m not voting, what’s the point.” Well let me help you out with that, contrary to popular belief every vote really does count & not voting is basically you silencing yourself & leaving you without the right to complain about anything for the next four years. Also you should know that it’s not just our next president you’re voting for it’s your county politicians, state legislators & other agendas that affect where you live & your kids schooling. We have 34 of the 100 U.S. Senate seats & all 435 House of Representative seats are all up for election. People need to understand that voting is an important part of our democracy that help put the people in office that we feel are right to represent us & make the necessary changes that are in our best interest for our day-to-day living.

Understand that on the morning of November 9, 2016 we will have picked our 45th president & you not voting is giving the vote to the candidate that has received the most votes in your state & it could very well be the one that you don’t want in office, but remember you didn’t vote so you have NO right to voice your discontent. You silenced yourself when you made the choice to stay home or stay at work on November 8, 2016 when you could have been out there making a difference in the world. Even if you don’t think so you should know that EVERY VOTE DOES COUNT!! Not only that, think of your constitutional right that your giving up by not voting all because you’re upset with the two choices we have running for president. Me being an African-American Female I refuse to have my voice silenced because I know so many fought & paved the way for me to have this right & I will honor them by exercising that right. Look not voting would be a monumental mistake because mounting a successful tide-turning effort against attempts to roll back 50 years of progress is not an either or proposition, it’s a must!! We cannot afford to sit home & let others make our choices for us, we cannot let them decide that women of color should make significantly less than every white man when we are doing the same amount of work, if not more. Your voice matters which means your vote matters, black voters especially black women have a pivotal role to play in moving this country forward…….. GET OUT & VOTE!!!!

Let me leave you with a quote from the late great New York Congresswoman Shirley Chisholm “You don’t make progress by standing on the sidelines, whimpering & complaining. You make progress by implementing ideas.”

I have been hearing this a lot therefore I decided to tackle this topic because to be honest it really makes no sense to me at all….

I don’t seem to understand it when women say “I cheated because he’s always at work, he works to much.”

Now don’t get me wrong I know there should be a balance between work and family but at the same time with the rising cost of everything, is there really a such thing as “working to much”? How can you say they don’t have time to take care of home when if they weren’t working then there couldn’t be a home to take care of. How can you say they work too much and that’s why you cheated when we know if they didn’t work at all or have anything to bring in you would use that as an excuse for cheating also. We know if he couldn’t help at home he would be all types of no good, good for nothing so & so and any other derogatory names you and your “friends” can come up with, you would start playing No Scrubs by TLC while you and your “friends” danced around the livingroom or the home his hard earned money is paying for. You would dance around playing music on a computer or radio that is using electricity that he is working hard to pay for. You would tell him once again “If you were taking care of home I wouldn’t of cheated”, which takes us right back to where we started how can he take care of home when there is no home to take care of.

Bottom Line: You can’t have it both ways either you want a man that will be a man and do what real men, which is work and take care of their families the best they can, or you want a boy to play house with because your son ain’t old enough to play and do the things you need or want done. Now that only leaves you with two choices, let the man work & you be faithful & stop complaining or you get your butt out there, get a job, let him sit home and you pay all the bills then tell me how tired you are at the end of the day and you get home and he wants this and that and everything else he feels he deserves by being your mate.

You don’t have to go out and cheat and use the excuse “He works to much” if you really feel that way then sit down talk to him about how you’re feeling and if you can’t come to a happy medium then maybe you need to find a man, my bad a boy that don’t want to work!
