Vote


One of my favorite Calvin and Hobbes cartoons of all time involves Calvin and Hobbes sitting under a tree pondering deep mysteries, as they are wont to do. Hobbes asks, “Do you think that love is the strongest force in the universe?” Calvin thinks for a moment, then replies, “No, I’d have to go with stupidity.”

Let’s hope that America doesn’t prove Calvin right today.

It’s undoubtedly important to cast your vote, and I firmly believe that if you don’t take the time to vote, you have no right to complain about the outcome. On the other hand, if you are American and you still think that your vote is 100-percent meaningful, take a look at this op-ed in the New York Times. I’m not saying that you shouldn’t vote — you should, and you must. But clearly the American brand of democracy is itself in need of some examination.

I really think that one of the best articles is this one. It has everything. I needed this information to prove wrong my teacher. I knew this was happening. But my teacher did not agree with me. Now, he'll know I was right! Thank you!

Very interesting article. I would love to read the book “Start with Why”, by Simon Sinek. I think he has taken a great topic to deal with. Teaching leaders to inspire others is a good idea to bring up a civilized society. Thanks for sharing. Keep posting.
