Power of the vote can change America

The bright light that shone across the world known as the United States of America for more than 200 years is starting to dim.

Almost every utterance from the president is diminishing all that is good about our beloved country. Those that voted for Donald Trump and do not admit to the failing should be ashamed. Those in Congress who standby, let it happen and say nothing, should be ashamed. Every eligible voter that does not vote should beware. Safeguards and protections built by honorable citizens for the benefit of all are fading away.

Our standing as a leader in the world is going away. How much longer are we going to tolerate this indecency? Do not just stand by and let it happen. Change it. Educate yourself! Speak out to the injustice. Be proud of yourself and your country.

Vote.

– Robert Widener
