Well, you have all the information you need about this election. And you're powerless to affect the outcome on grand scale. But you do have control of one thing: your vote.
If you choose not to cast your ballot or if you decide to vote for someone you wouldn't otherwise vote for simply to "send a message" to people you're unhappy with you may look back on this time with the realization of what a mistake that was.
You might look back from a recession because Democrats raised taxes and threw the brakes on this strong economy.
You might look back from a ridiculous Constitution-gutting Supreme Court ruling based on a 5-4 decision because Stevens or Ginsburg retired and the President couldn't get a decent nomination out of the Judiciary Committee.
Or you might look back from a devastating terrorist attack because Democrats took away important tools from our military and intelligence services that would have stopped it.
Will you look back from any of these scenarios and realize that you did nothing to stop this? Maybe Republicans will lose control of one or even both Houses of Congress anyway. But do you want to look back with the regret that you helped that happen?
I don't. And I won't.
This election will be fought in every State and every district and it will come down to turnout. And that turnout starts with you and me.
What do you say, Bluto?
Hat Tip to The Colossus for the clip.
