Think about our privilege to vote

Dear Editor:

Like it or not, we’re into another federal election (too soon). When will we ever learn? When will the hotheads cool down and cooler heads prevail? Not any time soon, apparently.

What disturbs me is the apathetic response of “vox populi”: the shrugging of shoulders, the wry grin, the comment, “I’m not going to vote — what’s the use?”

What’s the use?

Think about it. If voting is too much trouble, think what trouble could ensue should an unwanted party come into power. What then, eh? Does that bear thinking about?

We are so fortunate in this country to have the privilege of voting. In so many countries voters have just one choice.

Well two — vote or get shot.

Think about it.
