Never in the history of the world has it been more important to exercise the franchise than in these present times. Practically all over our planet today the marching feet of demagoguery is rampant. Many of the likes of these Demagogues would put Hitler to shame. It is hardly necessary to name these Demagogues as they are all well known to us.
Such is the danger to world peace of some of these leaders who tend to only continue to spawn their own likes.
To those of you who take the view that "how could my vote make a difference?" I would remind you of the many leaders who are prepared to exploit any chink in the armour of politics to take over or retain power despite the popular will.
Let us not forget the old adage:
If your leader tells a lie big enough and keeps repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for as long as the people remain in ignorance of the consequences of the lie.
For this reason facts matter, truth matters and the ability to discern the difference berween truth and lies matters. We should also not forget that in the end character matters.
