Now the trumpet summons us again – not as a call to bear arms, though arms we need – not as a call to battle, though embattled we are – but a call to bear the burden of a long twilight struggle year in and year out, "rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation" – a struggle against the common enemies of man: tyranny, poverty, disease and war itself. — John Fitzgerald Kennedy

The future of this republic is in the hands of the American voter.  — Dwight D. Eisenhower

For twelve successive Congresses we have appeared before committees of the two Houses making this plea, that the underlying principle of our Government, the right of consent, shall have practical application to the other half of people. Such a little simple thing we have been asking for a quarter of a century. For over forty years, longer than the children of Israel wandered through the wilderness, we have been begging and praying and pleading for this act of justice. We shall some day be heeded.  — Susan B. Anthony

Giving every man a vote has no more made men wise and free than Christianity has made them good.  — H.L. Mencken

Voting is the least arduous of a citizen`s duties.  He has the prior and harder duty of making up his mind.  — Ralph Barton Perry

A man’s feet must be planted in his cournty, but his eyes should survey the world.  — George Santayana

If you are a registered U.S. voter, please practice your right and responsibility; if you`re not, please say a prayer for all of us. Thank you.
