Why is it important to vote and on this year especially.

Voting has always been important it shows how we the people can cause change in our society, it shows that we have a voice in government. This year is special since the country needs to change its policies on Healthcare and Social Security since it has the country in debt because it gives out more money than what comes in it making the government spend more money than what they dont really have there are other issues like gay marriage and the war in Irag and gas prices, these are problems that need to be solved too.
