Vote! Go Vote! Vote!

Sadhvi

I just “Googled” the “US Constitution” and found out that women got the right to vote in 1920.  I didn’t know that!

Amendment 19 – Women’s Suffrage Ratified 8/18/1920. 

The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex. Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.


You know I don’t really talk about religion or my spiritual practices.  I mean, I rarely post a comment on FaceBook (although I do like to share!).  I am also not someone who would try to convince you to change political parties, or to tell you that what you felt was wrong because I feel that we all have a right to our own beliefs.  And that also means I don’t want anyone to tell me what I should do and whom I should vote for.  Like the man who was waiting outside the place I went to vote a couple of weeks ago, who offered me a conservative cheat sheet, in case I forgot mine!  Ok, so we are all different, and, we all need to vote.  So consider this a loving reminder to do so, in case you haven’t already!

About Sadhvi

Sadhvi's trying to find the balance in life over 50 without having any surgery, taking any pills, or killing anyone. She doesn't want to look or feel the way she felt when she was 20 or 30. Trusting that everything is really OK unless you think about it helps her make it through each day. Also realizing that nothing can be done, and, that nothing matters really helps. Gardening (and weeding), poppies and flowers, painting on things, baking, and sharing on Oops50 helps to make it all right too.

  1. Sadhvi, Thanks for reminding women that they have a right to vote. We should never take that for granted.

  2. We did early voting here in NV. My husband Geo will work the voting day from 6 to 6 – well not till they tally all the stuff so it is about 8:30 P.M. when he get home. He has done this ever since we have moved here. He do not do the 2 weeks of early voting as it is just a bit much for an 80 yr old man.

    Me – I am all for the democrats and Harry Reid.

  3. Sadhvi,

    Thanks for posting. Considering how polarized this country is, and how ugly politics has gotten, I commend you for acknowledging our right to vote for whom ever we choose. I remember when I worked in DC at the World Bank, and we just had finished voting for (then) President Clinton. A Pakistani colleague of mine commented how great this country was because we could vote for anyone we wanted to and didn’t have to worry about getting killed. We are so lucky we have this choice. So, like you, I encourage everyone to vote, just vote.
