Vote! Vote? Voted! Huh? BY DR. ELLEN BROWN Which of these applies to your current situation? I recently heard an interesting comment during a discussion on black radio regarding “get out the vote” efforts across America. It was a response to often-cited reasons for not voting — like “it doesn’t make a difference anyway.” Well, if it didn’t make a difference, then why are there so […]
