Your Vote Counts In 2020
I am not going to lie. We’ve been through hell and back this year, and it is only June! So much has happened, that it seems almost impossible to turn away from the news. I get that. Truly, I do.
I’m not here to post my political agenda. I am neither a democrat or a republican. I’m not a socialist either. I am not a liberal, nor part of any other ism you want to ascribe to me.
But I can spot liars when I see them, and I can certainly use my voice for the purpose of good. That purpose has always been to help US grow (I grow with you) as individuals. I don’t want YOU to be like ME. I want YOU to BE YOU! Can we agree on that? What else might we agree on? This perhaps…
You can vote. If you can paint a sign and march on the streets of Los Angeles, Chicago, New York, Berlin, Utah, or Minnesota… YOU can also vote. Don’t let the rhetoric in your own mind about the #brokensystem deter you from the very action that will cause change! YOUR VOTE.
To help you, I’ve created a small video art piece, consisting of 7 videos that you can use to spread the message of change. They are not-partisan. That is, they don’t say who to vote for, nor are they going to. At least not from my end. That decision is yours to make.
What can you do with the videos? Whatever you want. Sample the audio, twist them around. Play them loudly from your phones through a loud Soundsystem, and even send them as emails to your elected officials. I don’t need credit for it, I did not put any logos on them. That’s not the goal. The goal is to spread the idea that VOTING MEANS POWER.
That’s it. Just vote. If you want to do nothing else, just vote. You don’t need to go and march if you fear for your safety. You need not worry about your social standing in the community if you speak out. You can do it quietly by voting out those you want out!
