Tomorrow (Thursday) is an important day in Blount County. It's when we vote. Voting is a right paid for in blood and a duty we must honor.

Voting is the only say we have in government. Wealthy businessman and lawyers seem to believe government is for sale to the highest bidder. Don't let them get away with it. All the money in Blount County can't buy your vote unless you let it by sitting idly by. Your vote is yours and yours alone. Use it, and use it wisely.

This is your chance to have your voice heard. Send a message: Government by the People, for the People.

I heard Patricia Bell say recently...

...that women won the right to vote in Tennessee by the vote of one man. Just one vote. That's eerily like a current Kevin Costner movie.

They can't count your vote if you don't show up.

"Men are equal; it is not birth but virtue that makes the difference." --Voltaire
