According to: thebestcolleges.org:  9 REASONS WE NEED YOUNG VOTERS MORE THAN EVER.

Young voters

Young voters notoriously neglect the importance of voting, but their voice is an important one on both sides of the aisle. Key issues in every election increasingly relate to the concerns of students and professionals between the ages of 18 and 29, making it essential for members within that age group to educate themselves on political issues and take to the polls. While millennials represented nearly 50% of the entire voter population in the 2016 election, they were further divided along race, gender, and education lines when considering key issues from both candidates.

Why is it important to vote, especially if you fall within a crucial age demographic? Below are some of the most compelling reasons that young voters are needed more than ever in local, state, and national elections.

  1. YOUNG VOTERS ACCOUNT FOR HALF OF THE VOTING POPULATION, MAKING THEM A POWERFUL POLITICAL FORCE.

The youth vote has the potential to be extremely influential in this country. While young voter participation in 2016 declined by 2% from a record 52% at the 2008 election, today the voting population includes almost equal

parts millennials and baby boomers. As the boomer electorate decreases in size, experts suggest it is merely a matter of time before millennials become the largest and most powerful group driving future elections in the U.S. Unfortunately, not all who can vote will, meaning that fewer young people get to directly influence issues that might affect their lives for years to come, including college tuition reform and federal job programs.

  1. YET OLDER AMERICANS ARE MORE LIKELY TO VOTE.

    45-64-year-olds accounted for the largest electorate last year

While young people make up a large portion the voting-eligible population, they’re much less likely than those who are older to get out and vote. In 2016, only 19% of people aged 18-29 cast their ballot in the presidential election; at 49%, 45-64-year-olds accounted for the largest electorate last year.

Some reports have attributed the outcome of the election to a “missed opportunity” on the part of millennials to affect change en masse: while the majority of young voters actually cast ballots for Hillary Clinton, their low turnout was not enough to counter the ballots of older voters. For this, researchers are increasingly interested in methods of successfully mobilizing young voter groups. Duke University recently initiated an innovative project designing policy reform to increase turnout among the youth.

  1. EVERY VOTE COUNTS.
Millennial’s reported feeling especially disillusioned

Many young people cite feeling as though their vote doesn’t count as their reason for not participating in elections. Millennials reported feeling especially disillusioned by both presidential candidates before the election in 2016, and many chose to sit out altogether as a result. In an America divided perhaps more than ever, every vote counts, especially those from one of the country’s largest voting groups. President Barack Obama’s election in 2008 is an example of this theory in motion, as his popularity with youth voters was one of the key elements of his campaign, giving him a large margin over competitors in a number of strategic states. Other elections in recent years have come down to just a few votes (Minnesota senator Al Franken won by just 312 votes in 2009 as one example), proving your vote does matter, maybe more than you realize.

  1. YOUNG PEOPLE WERE HIT HARDEST BY THE GREAT RECESSION
    USE YOUR POWER: OUR VOTE, OUR GOD OUR DOLLARS, AND OUR LOVE

    College debt and a lack of jobs dealt some of the most crippling blows to the financial futures of many young voters after the Great Recession in the late-2000s. Though unemployment rates have declined and millennial’s have found their footing in a new economy, policy change and reform in areas affecting college students, such as debt forgiveness and healthcare, are as crucial now as they were in the 2008 election.

The situation won’t be changed by sitting idle while others make major political decisions. Youth voters who want to inspire change need to show their support for the candidates whom they feel best represent their needs. No one else is going to vote in the interest of young people except young people.

  1. YOUNG VOTERS ARE AN INCREDIBLY DIVERSE GROUP.

    LIBERALS, INDEPENDENT,
    DEMOCRATIC, GOP OR LIBERTARIAN

The divisive nature of partisan politics is alive and well among young voters in today’s world. So much so that the millennial electorate is expected to be the first demographic group with the ability to challenge the basic two-party system, potentially driving the need for alternative political parties whom millennials feel can represent the needs of a diverse population through a more inclusive agenda.

The same young adults in 2016 who were more likely to identify as liberals were also less likely to identify as Democrats. Currently, millennials are the most diverse voting group. Also of note? At 35%, a higher percentage of young voters identified with independent political views, rather than Republican or Democrat, than in the past three presidential elections.

  1. YOUNG PEOPLE NEED TO CONNECT WITH POLITICS EARLY ON.

    Participating in politics is a hard-won right in our nation

Participating in politics is a hard-won right in our nation. Some experts argue that young Americans with such potential for affecting political change don’t exercise the right to vote as often as they should. Many even suggest that the voting age should be lowered in an effort to promote earlier voting among teenagers and young adults. Building a relationship with the political process as early as possible is key to making voting a lifelong habit: you may already be familiar with the phrase, “Vote early, vote often.” If you’re historically a repeat voter, you’re much less likely to skip a trip to the polls in the future. This sort of habit-forming participation is key to driving policy and electing leaders who represent the needs of voters of all ages.

  1. IT’S EASIER THAN EVER TO BE AN EDUCATED VOTER.

    today’s tech-savvy world,

In today’s tech-savvy world, there is no excuse not to vote because you don’t know enough about the candidates. In fact, one might find it harder to escape day-to-day political news than subscribe to it. In an era in which Twitter is preferred means of communication for the President of the United States, Instagram, YouTube, and Snapchat have become as crucial as the candidates’ own websites for disseminating information about relevant issues. As this type of civic education in everything is typical for most Americans today, it isn’t just beneficial in the months leading up the election but also on a day-to-day basis. The current online climate allows young voters to form a fuller picture of the candidates and their platforms in a medium they’re familiar with

  1. THE YOUTH VOTE CAN
    “youth vote” could actually sway the election.

    SWAY THE ELECTION.

As mentioned before, your vote does matter, so much so that the collective “youth vote” could actually sway the election. Millennials have been credited with the decisive vote in the 2012 election of Barack Obama for a second term as president; Obama won 67% of the national youth vote, proving more popular in crucial states such as Florida, Virginia, Pennsylvania, and Ohio, over his opponent Mitt Romney. In 2016, candidates campaigned hard for the 18-29 set, singling out initiatives to target millennials as a powerful electorate group. Why? Because they understand the necessity of winning approval from this voting majority.

  1. YOU MAY NOT CARE NOW, BUT YOU MIGHT IN FOUR YEARS.

    For many Millennial’s, adulthood brings many new challenges,

You may feel that choosing a president or a senator just isn’t something that affects your life right now. You might not yet be struggling with issues like college debt or finding a full-time job. For many millennials, adulthood brings many new challenges, like college, marriage, buying a house, paying for your own health insurance, and/or starting a business, all of which could radically change your perspective on political issues. While you can’t predict who or where you’ll be in four years, you can be sure that the political officials elected into office and the policies they implement will impact your life in the coming months and years. Why not have a say? Speak up, make a choice, and take part in the election to protect your interests in your first few years in the real world.

Another Mass Shooting

A 2nd Amendment Right
Another Crying mother The Benefits of Assaults Weapons

IF CONGRESS DID THEIR JOBS: The FBI Would Not Be In This Position, Because 17 Persons Would Be Alive. This Buck Stops With Congress.

GMW in particular and America in general, we’re the hands that rocks the cradle which is now

speaking so that the hands that’s burying our children can be put to better use; the problems our children face are huge, the price is high and non-refundable, the currency is their lives. The magnitude of their problems scares me half to death but I would gladly give my life if it would eliminate any one of the problems they face

The last 10 years the GOP has had a majority in the House and Senate. with the Legislative authority granted by the constitution to enact legislation, declare war, confirm or reject many presidential appointments and substantial investigative powers. They make the laws.

With the aforementioned facts, I think each of us has to take responsibility for the proliferation of guns in general and Assaults Weapons in particular.

Only One Qualified To Use AR-15

Congress have refused to enact sensible Gun Control Laws and replace the band on Assaults Weapons, and we have continuously voted to keep them in office.

So who’s the perpetrator of the gun violence that destroying  our children, families and country?  The ban on Assault Weapons should never have been lifted. There is no valid reason for civilians to have access to Assault Weapons.

If we keep voting for the same people, we’re going to keep getting the same results. We have the power, why don’t we use it November 6, 2018.

GMW and America we can either fix this problem with our Power of: Our Votes, Dollars, God and Our Loves, or continue burying our children and spend time complaining about what should have be done; Or, what congress  should do, the people we gave power to enact legislation that prevent atrocities caused by our lack of sensible guns controls.

Mental Health is just the scapegoat for lack of sensible

Abuse of 2nd amendment  Gun Controls. America we’re better than this.  United we can fix this.

In the name of Jesus I’m praying for good to triumph the evil that permeating our country.

1791 2nd Amendment Musket Gun of choice

GMW, The 2nd amendments  to the United States Constitution protects the right of the people to keep and bear arms was adopted on December 15, 1791, as part of the first ten amendments contained in the Bill of rights. The weapons of 1791. 

It’s states A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.

The 2nd amendment only applied to muskets

GMW (grandmothers, mothers and women) The AR15’s are Assault Weapons of the 21st Century, how is it they are protected by the 2nd amendment rights.

GMW, we are no longer asking  why we are losing so many of our babies and adults to the violence of gun in general, and Assaults weapons, AR15 in particular.

For our politicians, who are in the pockets of the NRA, we’ll leave them there, but we are going to get them out of Washington. For every GMW who’s sick and tired of the gun violence, do something about it. Use the power of your Vote and Dollars November 6, 2018.

GMW, we are not helpless nor powerless,  some of us might be spineless but, we have each other’s backs, and we all have access to the same power: Our God, Our Love, Our Dollars and Our Vote.

GMW isn’t it sort of strange, we have not seen or heard, or I haven’t  heard our President acting as leader of our country addressing the tragedy In Florida. It appears he’s just happy the media is not focusing on his new Breaking News Story.

Ladies, this year we’re going to make the country duplicate what happened in Va. in 2017. All 435 members of the House and 33 of the 100 in the senate is up for election in 2018.

We have an opportunity to send 468  New Politicians to Washington, who will do what we want. We need gun and prison reforms. We have more guns in our streets and people in prison than any other country in the world. We can make a difference!!!

We are going to get commonsense guns laws. Our men in the House can no longer legislate  without us and The Senate can’t serves as a “check and balance”. or ratifies treaties, tries impeachments, and elects the vice presidents when necessary.

They can no longer be at the tables without us, who knows how to be bipartisan with principles, integrity, decency, and values.

 

The sleeping giants are awake and standing. Our power is going to be speaking for us from now on, if we’re serious about change.

Putin Or Trump?

Who’s Running Our Oval Office

Grandmothers, Mothers and Women (GMW), I’m quite sure each of us is realizing our country, and way of life has been compromised. It has been manipulated by Vladimir Putin, with Donald Trump as his vehicle of choice. Those GOP’s in leadership in Washington has lost their way, along with some democrats, like Chuck Schumer.

GMW, We Marched 2018 NYC. Now We Use Our Power OUR DOLLARS AND OUR VOTE!!!!

From the time Mr. Trump entered the presidential race in 2015 until now, our standards started eroding. We have been infiltrated by the Russian, we’re in a cold war. Our values changed. Good people started looking away while evil triumphed. Political Leaders and our main stream media has lost their minds, from the time Trump became a candidate, he has been in the news every single day. Garbage sells.

His divisive rhetoric has divided our country, like nothing has before. Mr. Putin could not have been more effective if he was given carte blanche to destroy our democracy and everything we stand for. He has succeed in having our POTUS denigrating, and has turned on the very branches that are responsible for keeping us safe and helping police the world, The FBI, CIA, the Attorney General and our Military has been put danger and  devalued by Donald Trump/Putin.

The two(2) branches we have in place for check and balances on the Oval Office has proven to be null and void. Our government has ceased to function. They managed to repeal several issues that were not debatable. and used those issued to stop our government, because they were inept and unable to orchestra a budget consisting of real issues. instead they reinvented the wheel, with Chip and DACA, things the American People are in support of already.

GMW, we can’t prove it but, our common sense, discernment, logic, wisdom, principles, values, integrity and our God given intuition, is prompting us to open our eyes and really see and smell the stint that permeating our country in general and those charged with running our government from the highest offices of our country. From the Oval Office to the House and Senate; the heads of those branches, are infesting the rest of those we trusted, to act on our behalf and do what’s best for our count, when we sent them to Washington.

Grandmothers, Mothers and Women, we’re better than this, our men have forgotten  how to be objective.

2017 We Marched  DC: Now Lets Use Our Power . 
OUR GOD AND OUR LOVE

But, we know for a fact, beside every successful honest man, is a Great Woman and we’re going to prove it. We have the power,  ready to use it. Please stay tune.
