C' mon peeps. Tues aren't so bad.
We just came off of Memories and Mourning. Don't mind the title. The only thing that you should be taking away from here if you care, is "McFote"..... or FoteDat. I'm trying to say Vote.
This may or may not be too long for you. I got to get it out, its my civic duty. My blog is free to read for all. No one is paying me to put anything on here. But I live here, so my music, my writing and my blog is where you would find my thoughts if I have any. Its possible sometimes I do. Like right now.
I can't be uninvolved. Neither can you.
I say "McFote" because voting is a little played out at times. Cliche if you will. It sounds like "Go do something you don't want to do," or "Go be forced to vote". That darned V word.
Anyway, to put it in context there are reasons I do it. Everyone has there reasons and you should too. Find one. Out of the possible thousands of reasons that exist you only have to pick one. If you can't bring yourself to say vote or vote, try to say Imma "McFoteDat."
Of course its kind of ridiculous. But so wot?
I have several reasons I do it. Some I'll say, some are personal.
Will never make it on here. I just can't say. Here are the ones I can say.
I McFote because:
1) I can.
You see, I had to take my kids to school this morning. No control over that. I had to buy gas, I be needing to get where I'm going, no control over that either. In fact...I don't have any control much, except what I eat as that's the most obvious one, how that's done up and tight, stored and stuff.....many other things I can't control....but I can vote? You mean....I get to pick? Someone? Anybody?
Who's on there? Details. By details I mean who be resonating at the very least partially. Minimal in its extremeness, because its really difficult to resonate.
2) What's it gonna cost me if I vote for you or you? By that I mean, can I get my stuff cheaper? by the way....where's that coming from? Why do I care where its coming from? Because it matters. To-me. For reasons I can't explain its too long.
3) Now....which one of you or you is going to get me a better price and negotiate that? Did you have student debt? like I did? Like I do? Oh....and that's just a verrrry "smol" piece of the pie. I mean little. Students are just one fifth of the category. No pun intended, but we got some stuff we need to deal with and that's not a secret.
However way, whichever way voting translates to me having a better life, I'm for it. That trickles down you know....my fam, your fam... Your friends, you should be wanting to know what-up? up there on the hill.
4) I vote because I want them to do it. Not me. You don't need me to tell you the reasons why its difficult to be a politician. I wish each of them luck. Art rocks yeah!
There are only two parties so don't kid yourself. I've heard rumors at times that we are voting to be controlled. Yeah.... we are, that's why its important to personally Mc dat. Fote. We all have differences of opinions on who we want in there.
My opinion is always going to be in favor of my womanhood. I'm quite impartial in that respect. I can't be swayed into abandoning my progressive values.
I'm of the opinion that if I'm well, we all are well by the grace of God. Why wouldn't you want to send someone to the presidency? Someone to represent us? I want to be represented. I want my president...(because I live here), looking fine at all times. I want my president to have his chin up....back straight sir/madame, we are watching. Okay....sometimes we are watching.
Clearing my throat now. Let me separate some more.
Okay. Continuing.... Alright I'll be more honest...we watch maybe 2% of the times, I personally watch on election day because my feet will take me to watch it all, by voting, that's more like 1 and a 1/2%... I don't think its enough. But its all I got. However way you want to interpret that.
I'm also impartial on who wins, because I won't put myself in a position to say I didn't do that duty, the one thing I can control in this country. Its a pretty big country. You can't control much but you can control who you see working that White House on our behalf. Who won is who you voted for. No one is going to like that I said that. I don't even like it. Smiling then pouting.....deep breath now.
For the non voters. I can't come on my blog and say all these things about voting, while not acknowledging the reasons some people don't vote. I do not fall into the category of a non-voter. Unless, we tore down our democracy, I will vote. There is so much power there. Why? because if you are displeased in any way...we are allowed to recast in four years.
Wow! look how that flew by. I thought we had, election just last year. Well, lets say if you don't vote....then you just don't. I can't say anything about that or even make a list of reasons. I can find only one reason, and that is....you didn't believe in your democracy and it failed to resonate with you. I want you to know there is nothing....absolutely nothing wrong if you don't vote. That one is personal too. I can tell you that foting holds them accountable or at least tries to.
For challengers and incumbents. Do you deserve to have the presidency? It can be such a thankless job...you must accept this thankless destiny and fight for it. Its a job that performs more like a service.
How do you even reconcile that? And that folks....has to be the hardest part of public service. This is truly where you see that money is worth absolutely zilch at times. Nothing you say can get anyone to vote for you unless they want to. So I wish all the best in an impartial way.
My name is Tracy and welcome to my site and blog page. Thanks for stopping by. On this page I will try to catalogue some things or pivotal moments I feel have made me who I am. There may even be moments that are not so pivotal but more like a muse, a funny memory or otherwise. Be warned though, I may take things off, I may re-edit or remove things. If you happen to read something and it isn't here anymore, its because I am either re-editing, or getting ready to add something else. Also, some of the things I say on here may be understandable and some may not, and sometimes I may not blog or add anything for a while. It's okay with me if you don't understand me or what I write, I mean no ill will in my words or what I write so don't take it personal if it offends you that's just not my aim. My blog or this page is created for me, and for my fans or anyone who wants to come on here and read what I write.
