Ok America, let's get busy.

People if you have not registered to vote, I urge you to do so. This year is a landmark in political history for this country.

While that is a good thing and very exciting and a positive step for America that certainly shouldn't be the reason that you all run out and register or vote for that matter.

What is important is that this country is drowning in a government that for far too long has catered to the rich corporations and the health care system to the point that the people are suffering.

We suffer from unending fees, taxes, uncontrolled credit companies that call the shots and rising health care costs that are simply outrageous.

Everyone talks about America being such a great country - you can go get treatment anywhere... they never turn you away.

Horseshit. They have, they can and they do.

Get a copy of the movie Sicko by film maker Michael Moore, watch it and then tell me with a straight face that America is the best at health care for its citizens. NO WAY.

We Americans that have to deal with the health care system on a monthly basis know that things are not as they should be.

As bad as it is, there is more going on in the USA than failing health care that is definitely there if you have the money to pay for it. If you don't, then you are most likely out of luck.

The changes we need to at least give ourselves a fighting chance to catch up to the rest of the world are in Washington D.C. - not just at the White House but at the Senate and anywhere else our politicians debate our futures.

See, you aren't realizing those crucial words - "our politicians debate our futures" That is exactly what they do. We give them that right when we either vote or we don't vote, stay at home announcing that it is "someone else's problem". Actually, it ends up being every one's problem.

This is why it is so important for everyone to get out there and register to vote then DO IT! CAST YOUR VOTE!

And ladies, never forget Alice Paul and the other women who fought to give women the right to vote. Don't waste your right to be heard!

If you don't know who Alice Paul is, watch the movie, Iron Jawed Angels and it will explain who she was and what she went through to win our right to vote.

Come on people, don't sit this one out. Be part of this history making election. An election that will hopefully help our country take positive steps toward a better future.
