I heard yesterday, on the Mark Levin show, that statistics say only 1 in 5 voters actually vote in midterm elections. That's insane, and in an election like we're facing in November, every single vote counts. (Especially when dead people and cartoon characters are voting Democrat)
I said during the 2008 elections, and I'll say it again...Conservative women are the not-so-silent-anymore majority in America. We just need to act on it, and quit thinking our votes don't matter. Consider the fact that just after the election in '08, Smart Girl Politics--a growing conservative women's networking site--had 60 members (I'm proud to say I was one of them). Fast forward to September 2010, their membership is going strong and growing, at just under 18,000 members. That's no small matter, and points to the fact that Conservative women are feeling empowered, and letting their voices be heard like never before.
Funny thing, though. Turns out feminists only think you're allowed to speak up if you put a "D" by your name. You can't be conservative and have a voice, ladies. I could list links, but you'd be looking all day...they're never ending. Look how Sarah is treated, and you really need no further evidence. Men on the left, from the President on down to people like David Letterman, would have her sit down and shut up, and have used every trick in the book to make her do just that. (something that would have N.O.W. up in arms were it happening to their chosen ones) Thank God, unlike some of the wimps we have in the GOP, she's got guts and refuses to be silent.
So, I ask you. Are you registered to vote? If you are, have you encouraged others to register? Ask your girlfriends--you'd be surprised how many women there are that don't think it's necessary to cast a vote. There's never been a more important time in our nation's history than right now, this election. Your vote very well could make the difference, so don't stay home. Motivate others in your circle of friends and family to vote, or register to vote, and encourage them to do what you're doing. If we can even just get 2 out of 5 to the polls, we can make a huge difference on Election Day. Don't count on everyone else--your vote matters.
