Voting Discrimination is a weapon upon we the citizens

I live in the state of Oregon. We have been voting via mail for many many years now.  We get our ballot and booklet info in the mail a few weeks before the election.  I vote in my own home. I go through everything and read all the info, then make my  decisions.  I sign my name and follow the mailing it back instructions.   I have a "registered voter card" in my wallet.  That should be good enough for anyone to be able to vote.  But I have not ever had to show it to anyone.  We have no problems here in our state in relation to "discrimination" or certain groups or people trying to "check us out" to see if we are a "valid voter". 

I find what a certain Political party is trying to do to make less people vote, (in order to win) by scare tactics, anger and such is "HORRIFIC"!  But you keep on spending all that money, by trying to scare people, because you will never ever win based on trying to get people to live in "fear".    Who wants to live that way anyway? We are a free country aren't we?  Right? Aren't we? 

Just something for all of us citizens to think about. You know what the right thing to do is...I know I do!  Vote!  Do not fear, stand up for your rights and march on and VOTE in this very important election.  Stop living in the past and "move on".  Okay, I'm ready for that!  Come together not "apart" and we in this nation will get through this and we will survive!

Shell Shocked...first draft writing last night

Shell Shocked

It was as if
a tearing of my soul
my inner voice
just stood there
as if there was no choice
damaged, shell shocked
to the very core
of my being
my eyes and heart
not seeing
nor believing
what was true
all along......
in my sensitivity
and caring
I accepted you
into my life

My lesson to learn?
stay true to thyself
or watch yourself burn
go down
in flames
and drown
in the pain
watching your soul
turn to embers
becoming cold to the touch
the fires gone out
of me......
to be replaced
by thoughts of
"Where did I go"?
I  lost myself.......

To be continued...
