Are You Going To Vote?

Are You Going To Vote?

 

You may question whether this has anything to do with

Real Estate and I will answer by saying ABSOLUTELY! 

 

There's no doubt the pulse beat of America is largely driven by real estate. The things we do and say play a large role in our economy be it buying, selling, lending, title, escrow, appraising, contracting, designing, inspecting or whatever role you play.

 

Real Estate matters

when it comes to voting

and it represents one of

the largest, most

powerful, financially

well healed and

influential voting blocks and institutions in America. 

 

I'm not asking who you're voting for nor do I care. I don't care if you're a Republican, Democrat, Independent, Libertarian, GLBT or other. I'm just asking that you exercise your right to VOTE.

 

I've been hearing so much lately about the overall disenchantment and downright discouragement with both candidates and have to agree we have some real critical and dangerous issues to deal with on both sides of the isle. But we cannot let our Children, Grandchildren and future generations down. 

 

If any American of legal voting age just says to Hell with it and doesn't show up we're throwing our rights down the drain and may never get them back.

 

We will then begin allowing Totalitarianism to rear its ugly head. Possibly forever more.

 

This may not impact the Baby Boomers as most of them will filter out through natural attrition in the next couple of decades. 

 

But speaking as a 71 year old Baby Boomer myself I will guarantee you that it will impact your Kids, Grand-Kids and many future generations to come. So please, regardless of your political stature or party, exercise your rights while you still have them and at least vote for our Kids future if you don't like the candidates who currently represent us.

 

Millions of Americans have fought and died for this

Country for generations so that we may keep our rights

and liberties protected. 

 

My loving and still living 94 year old Mom and Dad, who has graduated to that paradise called eternity, were two of them.

 

They both fought in WWII so that we would be protected from Japanese Imperialism, torture, mayhem and genocide or wouldn't have to be incinerated if we didn't have blond hair, blue eyes and spoke German. 

My Mom is sickened by what she has had to bare witness to since the end of WWII what with all the blood and treasure that was spent, spilled and sacrificed by millions only to end up with an America she so dearly loves and fought for in such turmoil.

 

So many American soldiers have made the ultimate sacrifice or come back seriously and in many cases permanently handicapped both physically and mentally to save and protect us all from the horrid and morbid atrocities that are currently taking place around the World today. 

 

Let's not let them down. They have fought hard in probably the longest war in our history and it's still not over by any stretch of the imagination.

 

So before you say to Hell with it, what's the use or why

should I waste my time with these two candidates.

Think about America and your Children first. Put away

your personal feeling and 

 

vote!!

 

GOD BLESS AMERICA!

Good afternoon John,

Hopefully the percentage of voters is a lot higher than the last few elections.

Make yourself an astonishing day.

How proud you are of both of your parents to have fought in WWII John DL Arendsen - great Blog!  We thank them for their service and their sacrifice.  We absolutely will vote, and have always voted - it is a privilege and that is what being an American is all about to me.

I am happy to say that I have already cast my ballot as an absentee voter.  

Posted by Chris Ann Cleland, Associate Broker, Bristow, VA (Long and Foster REALTORS®, Gainesville, VA) almost 2 years ago

I am voting absentee ballot next week especially since we have important state questions to decide and I don't want to get hung up at NAR Orlando since I am schedule to leave Monday night.

I am hoping and praying hard that it is for all our sake Raymond E. Camp This vote will count more than anyone I've ever cast in my lifetime.

Boy are you ever spot on about that one Carol Williams I couldn't agree more.

Posted by Scott Godzyk, One of Manchester NH's Leading Agents (Godzyk Real Estate Services) almost 2 years ago

I'm really struggling this election cycle, because I'm not fond of any of the candidates.  My cat Camilla was staring at me this morning.  She asked, "You want me to vote for WHO?"

100% is what we need this election cycle Scott Godzyk Disneyland is over. It's time to quit wussin around and belly up to the real World.

Posted by John DL Arendsen, Crest Backyard Homes "ADU" dealer & Contractor (CREST BACKYARD HOMES, ON THE LEVEL GENERAL & FACTORY BUILT HOME CONTRACTOR, TAG REAL ESTATE SALES & INVESTMENTS) almost 2 years ago

Ha! Myrl Jeffcoat your little buddy gives me warm fuzzies all over. Very cute. I feel your pain. As much of a mess we're on on both sides of the isles we as voters need to run our Country and get it back. The best way to do that is to stay in the game. Once we quit it's over.

Posted by John DL Arendsen, Crest Backyard Homes "ADU" dealer & Contractor (CREST BACKYARD HOMES, ON THE LEVEL GENERAL & FACTORY BUILT HOME CONTRACTOR, TAG REAL ESTATE SALES & INVESTMENTS) almost 2 years ago

Of course we will vote.  The only questions are which is the lessor of the 2 evils?

Posted by Florida Tolbert Team Keller Williams Advantage, Keller Williams Land Division Specialist (Keller Williams Advantage III Realty in Lake Nona) almost 2 years ago

I agree that it is very important for us all to vote - how can we complain unless we vote!

Posted by Lise Howe, Assoc. Broker and Attorney Licensed in DC, MD, VA, (Keller Williams Capital Properties) almost 2 years ago

Myrl Jeffcoat I'm so sorry I accidently deleted your last comment when I meant to edit it. Would you mind posting it again if you remember it. It was a very valid comment and I'd like to reply. Big thanks.

On that I have to agree Florida Tolbert Team of Keller Williams Realty Port St Lucie, FL Never seen such a Fuster Cluck in my entire life. So sad. But it's still important to cast what little we have left.

Posted by John DL Arendsen, Crest Backyard Homes "ADU" dealer & Contractor (CREST BACKYARD HOMES, ON THE LEVEL GENERAL & FACTORY BUILT HOME CONTRACTOR, TAG REAL ESTATE SALES & INVESTMENTS) almost 2 years ago

Spot on Lise Howe If we don't vote we have no reason or right to complain.

I have not missed voting in an election since I as 18, and will be voting in this all important one too.

We always vote and I think for the first time we may vote absentee to avoid spending half a day at the polls !

Posted by Sally K. & David L. Hanson, WI Realtors - Luxury - Divorce (EXP Realty 414-525-0563) almost 2 years ago

I  have already cast my ballot as an absentee voter.

Posted by Jennifer Mackay, Your Bay County Florida Realtor 850.774.6582 (Counts Real Estate Group, Inc.) almost 2 years ago

Already have - and proud of it

I'm 59 and this was the first time I have voted and thought that a candidate actually was interested in working for America!

Posted by Jessie Cochran, Panama City Realty Group (Counts Real Estate Group, Inc.) almost 2 years ago

Important is absolutely right Bob Crane Probably the most important in our history. It will definitely determine the direction America will be heading in for the next 4 years at minimum or forever more.

By that statement Sally K. & David L. Hanson I'm assuming you're anticipating a significant turnout at the polls. I surely hope you're right.

America thanks you for showing up Jennifer Mackay 

Wow! Congratulations and thanks for stepping up Jessie Cochran !! Please don't ever stop now that you've started.
