My Thursday’s Thoughts are political once again. It came to me after watching numerous rallies in Pennsylvania over the past week.

 

You may think that your vote is worth as much as any other citizen of the United States, but sorry I must “burst your bubble”.  I can’t allow you to continue living a lie and in denial. Unless you live in one of the designated “swing states”, your vote may not mean that much. If you do not believe me, ask yourself “how many times have the candidates been to your state campaigning?” How much money is being spent on advertisements and calls in your area? If that number is really low or maybe even zero, then you’re not worth as much as say, “a swing state voter or independent”, in the campaigns’ eyes.

I don’t understand why voters don’t complain when candidates don’t treat their vote as important as the next person. With the candidates spending so much time in every nook and cranny of PA, OH, FL, CO, NC, and probably a few others, I began to feel unappreciated. The electoral college makes this voting process seem unfair and makes it very apparent that my vote is not worth as much as a Floridian’s vote.

So I’m wondering: How much is your vote really worth?
