I read the letters each day and see complaints about our government. Whether you are a Republican, Democrat, Libertarian, Independent or even belong to the Tea Party, first and foremost I must ask if you voted. It amazes me after an election to see how low the percentage of registered voters that turned out. Regardless of your party, the only way to make changes is to get out and vote. We all have the freedom to complain, but we need to exercise our freedom to vote as well. Only the people can make the real difference and the only way to have our voices heard is getting out to vote! Perhaps then the changes that need to be made will happen.
