Uncle Irvin: Circle Nov. 6
By Richard Gaw
America must stay great as a beacon of morality, freedom and liberty, and as the leader of the free world. But America is only as great as our elected leaders' wisdom. If our elected leaders fall short, America will lose its influence. If our elected leaders make the right choices, America will stand tall.
In order for America to have the right elected leaders, citizen-voters must choose them carefully by voting for the best candidates to carry out our destiny, and voting out those who fall short.
Election Day, Nov. 6, is especially important for Pennsylvania. We will elect a U.S. Senator, every Congressional seat in the U.S. House of Representatives, a Governor, half of the State Senate, and the entire State House of Representatives. This upcoming election is second in importance only to the next presidential election in 2020.
If our citizen-voters go to polls in large numbers, we the people can control our own destiny and stand the best chance of electing leaders who mirror the majority. If you are not registered or don't vote, you are letting someone else choose our leaders.
So, make arrangements now to register, obtain an absentee ballot, or go to the polls on Nov. 6. Remember, America is only as good as our elected leaders, who are chosen by enlightened voters.
