In his 1989 farewell address, Ronald Reagan stressed why the simple act of voting makes our nation unique:
Ours was the first revolution in the history of mankind that truly reversed the course of government, and with three little words: “We the People.” “We the People” tell the government what to do; it doesn’t tell us.
Your vote is important to the future of our country, The Heritage Foundation’s David Addington says:
On behalf of your fellow citizens, we ask you to choose carefully in deciding upon the Representatives, Senators, President, and state and local officials who will make our laws. Your choice, along with the choices of your fellow citizens, will determine what America is to become. You, your fellow citizens, and future generations will live in the America you choose.
Today, it is your civic duty to vote. Tomorrow, regardless of the election’s results, it is Heritage’s duty to do as we have always done:
We will continue to formulate and promote conservative public policies based on the principles of free enterprise, limited government, individual freedom, traditional American values, and a strong national defense. We know our principles and we adhere to them. That is our public trust. The American people can count on us, just as we count on the American people.
Are you voting today?
