Choose

Image result for choose

Different people vote differently.

Some vote based on past performance.
Some vote based on future promises.

Some vote by facts.
Some vote by feel.

Some vote because of charisma.
Some vote because of potential.

Some vote due to similarities.
Some vote despite differences.

Some vote the person.
Some vote the party.

Irrespective of how you choose to vote, it's your right, even if someone else thinks you voted for the wrong reasons. Who's to say their reasons are the right ones?

If someone insists you follow how they vote, it means you have the right to insist they follow how you vote too.

Vote for someone who shares your values.
Vote for someone who shares your race.
Vote for someone who shares your religion.

Vote for someone who you've never met
Vote for someone who is your friend.
Vote for someone who is your enemy.

Vote for someone good looking.
Vote for someone good speaking.
Vote for someone good moving.

Vote for someone you think is stupid so you can control them.
Vote for someone you think is smart so you don't have to teach them.

Vote for someone who will bring change.
Vote for someone who will keep things the same.

Vote. Don't vote. It's your right.

If you do, your voice will be heard. If you don't, your voice is muted.

It's your choice. Choose.
