Recent editorials and letter have discussed the virtues of not just voting but becoming an informed voter.
Thousands in our armed forces have died or suffered serious wounds to protect our freedom to elect our representatives for all levels of government. Therefore, we owe to them as well as ourselves and future generations an obligation to cast our votes in a rational manner.
You would not let your boss tell you what vehicle to buy or allow a neighbor tell you which person to marry or what church to attend. Neither should union leaders, talk show hosts or biased TV ads dictate which candidates will earn your votes.
You have a moral duty to read objective literature, watch televised debates and take opportunities to meet and ask questions of those people seeking to earn your votes for the upcoming election.
Yes, be sure to vote, but make an effort to become as well informed as possible.
