Seventy-five years old today.

I don't know where the time went!

Do hotels in major cities

still have orchestras?

August 5, 2023

An honest question for this group:

I belong to a local group of Democrats that is loosely affiliated with Indivisible. We do have a lot of autonomy and we are able to make our own decisions. We are involved with a lot of local activities. We are precinct leaders, members of our central committees across three or four counties. We write LTTEs and we GOTV. We phone bank, circulate nominating petitions, etc. We walk in parades. We are all ages.

At one of our recent meetings, we had an honest question from one of our youngest members. She deserves answers. I have given her some answers from personal experience, but I am only one person. I would like answers from all kinds of Democrats. I don't care if you supported Bernie or Hillary. I don't care if you are gay or straight, religious or an atheist.

The young woman in question attends our local community college. She runs into this attitude at school: Why vote? Our vote does not matter.

Any sort of an honest answer, from personal experience, or from your own thoughts will do. Why vote?
