I am the son of Cuban immigrants who had to leave their home, their culture, their family and friends in the search for freedom. Cuba, like many other countries in the world, is a place where you are dictated what you can say, what you can eat, where you can go (within your own country). Voting and politics? Non-existent.
Whether you believe 1 person can make a difference or not, I believe it is our duty, and our privilege, to vote. However, voting can do more harm than good when this responsibility is taken lightly and the masses vote in ignorance. In a democratic country such as ours, the government is a reflection of our population. We voted for them. Or many cases, refrained from voting for something better.
There are basics that everyone should be aware of. It is your responsibility as a citizen of a civilized and free country to be aware of the issues. The article below details the differences between the Democratic (liberal) and Republican (conservative) political parties. This article is written in an objective, factual, and unbiased manner. You form your own opinion. But please form an EDUCATED OPINION.
