I hope our dear friends on the East Coast are doing better in their difficult circumstances in the aftermath of Sandy.
Folks, I wish to encourage all of you to exercise your privilege in the great country of America.
When you live outside of our democracy you see what a difference our founding fathers made, what countless men and women have sacrificed their lives for, and why we should hold our right to determine our governance sacred.
In America we have a system where all political parties are important.
Not necessarily every party is suitable for every person, but our system of democracy believes it is best to let the public decide.
It runs on the premise that governance of the people depends on the public's approval – that the citizen is wise enough to judge.
We decide on our own who really represents our interests, who it is that carries an inspirational vision – and those who do not.
Go out and vote America – exercise our treasure – democracy.
