Vote for our Families and for our Country

New York Primary Election 2018

The New York Primary Election is Thursday, September 13, 2018.

Primaries decide who will run for the major political parties. Many think primaries are not important, but they are. Many political districts have been gerrymandered (rigged) so that one party or the other almost always wins. In this situation, the Primary is the main vote because whoever wins the Primary will win the General Election.


General Election 2018

The General Election is Tuesday, November 6, 2018.

The last day to register to vote in the General Election is Tuesday, October 9, 2018.

This election is very important because our country now has an unstable president. Congress is supposed to be a check on this type of character, but the Republicans who control congress have fallen under Trump’s spell and failed even to follow their own stated policies.

I don’t automatically believe that we should vote for one party or another. Party politics are corrupt. Given enough time, both Democrats and Republicans become corrupted.

However, it is important that we vote Democrats into power in at least one of the houses of Congress, the House of Representatives or the Senate.

Democrats will then provide a reasonable check against President Trump’s worst impulses.


What Happened to America in Election 2016?

The entire country expected Latinos to play an important role in the 2016 elections.

We did, only didn’t vote.

So we got racists like Donald Trump and Jeff Sessions running our government, Republicans trying to take away health care, open hatred like the White Supremacist Charlottesville, and throwing paper towels to victims of Hurricane Maria.

Now some of our friends and family are disappearing. Families are being torn apart just to be mean. This used to happen under dictatorships. Now it’s happening in the United States.

Basically, if we don’t vote, our rights are taken away. And we have no one to blame but ourselves.

It’s simple, just register to vote and show up on election day.


We must Teach our Children to Vote

Some of us can’t vote because we are not citizens.

Even if you can’t vote, you can teach your children. They are citizens. Teach them that voting matters and how it works. Follow the election with them.
