No Vote, No Freedom

Let’s be clear: there is nothing more important than voting – period.
When people have full access to voting without cumbersome waiting, then we will live in a country on the road to a strong citizenry. Voting is more important than infrastructure, health care, education, and a host of other issues; because, the people will put in place those candidates who will be responsive to their needs.
I am tired of people calling the United States a democracy. It only tells me how little people know about this country. All one needs to do is recite the Pledge of Allegiance and it is evident we live in a “Republic”.
A Republic is a representative form of government. If we lived in a democracy, the majority would rule. Clearly, this is not the case here when a tiny fraction of the population can control important issues for all of us, in every part of this country.
Voting is everything.
