Please take the time to read all of this. I don't care if you are conservative or a liberal. Read and understand the implcations of your vote with the lack of understanding how it affects each and every American, regardless of political biases. Stop acting on the premise of what you will think you will get. Those in power can change their positions if they think it will improve their causes.
I think this article is excellent. Please read to the very end and I think you will find it helpful. Please send to anyone you think might want to consider the good points within it.
