Letter to the unengaged voters

This is a plea to those who think that voting is futile.

I understand your discouragement and disgust with the current political situation. I share that feeling. I also understand you may think voting doesn’t make a difference because you’ve lost hope in the system. But please, please, vote this November!

If you think our “reality show” president is ridiculous …. Please realize that the ridiculous man in power, and those in Congress who support him, are leading us in disastrous directions. We are on a cultural and political precipice and after 2018 things are going to get painfully “real” very fast if the current fascist trends are not put into check. Vote this November for progressive candidates.

Generation Z, millennials, women, minorities, disenfranchised poor and middle class, and the enlightened privileged – this country belongs to us all. This is your time. E Pluribus Unum. Vote!

Gary Jewell
