A quick interruption to the regularly scheduled blog

Have you voted yet? Do you plan to vote? 

Know your rights!

The law in 29 states requires an employer to give time off to vote. Some with pay. This link State Laws on Voting will show you the law in your state. In Texas, where I live, the law also requires the employer to give paid time off! Yeah!

The founding fathers, who wrote the Constitution of the United States, were pretty smart, They formed our government of 3 equal branches.

A fail-safe should a misogynist, xenophobic, racist, or bully, be elected as President of the United States, there are two other governing branches to keep him in check. Just like a 3-legged stool, if one leg breaks the entire thing tumbles over.

Our 3 branches prevent any President from becoming an autocratic ruler or dictator. What can keep that from happening?

YOUCongress and the Supreme Court.

It takes all three of these branches to make our laws.

It is imperative that you vote!

Vote to level the Congressional leg of our government.

Vote for those who fought to give us this freedom.

Vote for healthcare, clean water, education and a better future for our kids.

Vote your conscience. 

Your vote is needed and will count. 

Does your state give time off for voting?

Did you know that 29 states gave time off to vote, and some gave paid time off?
