This year's Presidential Election is one we should all seriously research and VOTE to decide who will be best to lead our country over the next 4-8 years.
The person you choose is certainly up to you and this is not a political post trying to get you to vote for one person over another but is to encourage you to get involved.
Get involved and look beyond yourself. Don't vote for anyone just because of their race or age or gender, political party or how many children they have. Take the time to get involved and vote for the person who has the ability, willingness and knowledge and who can lead the United States of America over the next 4-8 years.
