We have the privelege to live in a republic where we can cast our votes freely for those who we choose to serve us, not the other way around. This should not be counted lightly, as many people throughout this world have no choice- there are regimes who put on the appearance of allowing elections, but the people are subjugated, nonetheless.
Adherance to, and protection of, our Constitution is the only buffer we have against a regime. Our Founding Fathers had it correct so may years ago. Anything less, we become subjects, not a free society.
Vote...vote well...and vote for those who WILL uphold the Constitution, not just pay it lip service for their own gain....
