My memo to errybody: vote!
Last month, I wrote a post "My memo to blacks: vote!" The basic point was to tell African Americans that in certain races today, their participation could mean the difference between their Democratic representative staying in Congress or being replaced by a Republican. What's required is for them to show up, which many pollsters believe -- and history suggests -- will not happen. Not in the numbers needed to stave off a GOP stampede of the House, anyway.
But on this Election Day, I want to expand my declaration to include all those who care about this country. Democrat, Republican or Independent. Straight, gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender. Liberal, conservative or libertarian. Mad as hell, mildly perturbed or just plain weary. People fought and died for you to have the right to exercise your franchise. So exercise it. Vote.
