LISTEN NOW! Have you ever heard someone say, “I’m only one vote, it really doesn’t matter.” You may have heard it, or you may have been the one that has said it. What some may not realize is the number of Presidential Elections that have been decided by remarkably small elections. Just by looking at a few of the elections in America, would cause someone who has said the above statement, to register to vote and urgently do so.
In 1916, Woodrow Wilson won the Presidency with a margin of only 591,385 votes. It was under the leadership of Woodrow Wilson that the League of Nations was implemented; what is now known as the United Nations. It was Wilson’s perception that if you tie all of the nation’s economies together, there would be no war. Maybe without the leadership of Woodrow Wilson, we would be in a far different reality, and without a United Nations.
The 1960 election between John F. Kennedy and Richard Nixon was decided by a mere 118,574, putting Kennedy on top. If the elections would of presented Nixon on top, maybe Kennedy would still be with us today. Getting a little closer to today, George Bush was the President after the 2004 elections with a slim victory of 3,000,176 voters.
Think about this. When taking into consideration the total population of America, these major decisions of the next leader could of gone the entirely other way if it were not for a handful of votes. Every single vote matters. When considering voting this year, take this perspective into consideration; “The individual who is elected the next President has the power to send, or not to send, your sons and daughters, and even you, to war.”
