With the help of the Internet, a few thoughts on voting as you head to the polls this Election Day——

“People often say that, in a democracy, decisions are made by a majority of the people. Of course, that is not true. Decisions are made by a majority of those who make themselves heard and who vote – a very different thing.”

Walter H. Judd, Congressman

“Hell, I never vote for anybody, I always vote against.”

W. C. Fields, American Comic and Actor

“Democrats are the only reason to vote for Republicans”

Will Rogers American entertainer

“Bad officials are elected by good citizens who do not vote.”

George Jean Nathan, American Drama Critic

“Always vote for principle, though you may vote alone, and you may cherish the sweetest reflection that your vote is never lost.”

John Quincy Adams, U.S. President

“Elections are a good deal like marriages, there’s no accounting for anyone’s taste. Every time we see a bridegroom we wonder why she ever picked him, and it’s the same with Public Officials.”

Will Rogers

“A citizen of America will cross the ocean to fight for democracy, but won’t cross the street to vote in a national election.”

Bill Vaughan, American Journalist

“To make democracy work, we must be a nation of participants, not simply observers. One who does not vote has no right to complain.”

Louis L’Amour , American writer

“Remember to vote early — and often.”

Al Capone, American gangster
