I was so proud to vote today. Why? Because I saw people from all walks of life. I saw Muslims, Somalis, Mexicans, South Americans, all skin colors, all faiths, in wheel-chairs; I saw first time voters, elderly voters, immigrants, people dressed in suits, shorts, flip flops; all patiently waiting in line to vote. No fighting, no screaming, no pushing; just proud Americans choosing and using their right to vote. I cannot lie, I had watery eyes with emotion and strengthens the fact that I am proud to be an American no matter what issues of race, culture, economic means, sexual identity, religious background, crime, drugs, and terrorism that we are faced with every day. If I could have filmed my wait in line I would have because this is what being and American is about. Please vote and feel the pride and experience. I could care less who you vote for, I do care that you vote. Please do!
Four separate Amendments – the 15th, 19th, 24th, and 26th – even use the same powerful language to protect it: “The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged . . . .” Of course, like every other constitutional right, the right to vote is subject to reasonable restrictions. Nevertheless, it’s just as much a constitutional right as any other embodied in our Constitution.
