Get involved in elections

I really don’t like politics. I dislike the phoniness, the nastiness, the lying and the talking out of both sides of your mouth. During the past several years, the political system has seemed almost intolerable both between political parties and even within the same party. It makes you never want to vote again.

What we all need to remember is that voting is a privilege as well as a necessity. It’s how we make our voices heard and how we can change what currently doesn’t work. Please take the time to check out where the candidates stand on all of the issues and don’t just vote on a single issue.

Volunteer for the campaign or send a small donation and don’t forget to vote Aug. 14.
