After hearing all of the advertisements of the various candidates to polical office, are you satisfied with the results? If you did not vote, you have no right to complain. The will of the people has shown itself through this election. We have elections for the purpose of having people vote for us while holding down a political office. If we do not like the candidate chosen, then we have the right to elect somebody new to that office the next election. Voting should not be taken for granted. Many people who have served our country in the military service have given up their lives that we might have the right to vote. Be happy that you live here in the United States where we have free elections, without the government ordering us to vote for only one candidate of their party. Remember not all people have the same freedom that we have here. It will help in future elections, if you register to vote before the election and not on election day at the polls. Now you have the right to complain that your candidate did not make it into political office, if you have voted at this election. Do not vote and you deserve no right to complain. Feel proud to be an American citizen who has the right to vote. God bless the United States of America.
