The Gay Vegans


Nothing new from this blogger. An elections looms in the near future and I am taking to my blog to ask you to vote.

Regardless where you live in the US, there are important issues on the ballot. Whether you decide to vote for Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump or another candidate for President, there are dozens of other candidates in other races whose outcomes will affect your life and our lives.

The US Senate could be taken by the Democrats. No difference you say? Perhaps. Yet with all things being equal and if there is no difference I would still prefer that the US Senate be controlled by Democrats.

Although there is no talk about the Democrats taking over the US House, imagine the craziness that would ensue if they did?

From university regents to local school boards and city contests, our votes can rock the world. A bit naive? Maybe. I truly believe that whatever your fight is, engaging with the candidates that will represent you in whatever forum will help your fight. I’ve experienced this myself.

Please vote, and vote all of the way down the ballot. If you are unfamiliar with candidates, check them out. Same with referendums.

I work daily for a safer, better world for all living beings. I work to support the voiceless and to by an ally or comrade to those fighting fights I agree with. Certainly there is a candidate in every race where my views match higher than the other, even if just a pinch.

Thank you for reading!
