QUOTE on the WHY IT'S HARD TO VOTE FOR THE BEST MAN
Ive been going to vote with my Mom and Dad since I was about 4 years old. My parents always told me its a privilege to vote and you respect that right. My Dad taught U.S. Government and my Mom is a Political Buff. I think if my Mom wasnt able to vote she would lose her sanity. My Mom says if you dont vote then you dont have a right to complain about who gets into office.
Not too long ago, we were voting for the governor of Kentucky and we werent supposed to tell my grandmother and sister who everyone else in the family was voting for. When November came, I went to the polls with my parents and Grandmother Aaron. While we were in the voting booth, I asked my grandmother, Do you really want to vote for Chandler after all you are a Republican? Well she went ahead and voted for Chandler.
My Mom and Dad famous words when I go into the voting booth with them are Dont tell anyone who I voted for. The moral of the story is vote how you want and dont let people pressure you to vote any other way. Ive been going into the voting booth since I was about 4 years old and some day I will vote on my own. So when May rolls around, whether youre a Democrat or Republican, get on a bike, 4-wheeler, call a taxi or get in your vehicle and go VOTE. - BLAKE AARON
CRITIQUE of GREAT POLITICAL WRITING

QUOTE by JOHN F. KENNEDY
I just received the following wire from my generous Daddy - "Dear Jack, Don't buy a single vote more than is necessary. I'll be damned if I'm going to pay for a landslide."

- TIP O'NEILL, former speaker of the the U.S. House of Representatives. Submitted by CYRUS
The perception of being a winner is so important. So many people vote for the person they think will win, regardless of how they feel otherwise. They want to be on the winning side, whatever it is. -Former Adair County Republican Chairman GAYLON YARBERRY.
Some day the people of Louisiana are going to have reform government and they ain't gonna like it.-EARL K. LONG.
If I'm elected I won't do a damn thing. I just need the money.
-JINGLE WOOTEN, running for a Russell County office a few years back.
Jingle was the only honest politician I ever knew. - CYRUS
The ignorance of one voter impairs the security of all. -JOHN F. KENNEDY
We mean by 'politics,' the people's business: The most important business there is.
-ADLAI E. STEVENSON
You don't vote, you don't complain. When you vote that gives you the right to complain. - An Adair County voter who stays informed
