Message of the Day – Voting

voted-stickerI owe the discovery of this quote from former Minnesota Congressman Walter Judd to an email from Dr. Ben Carson:

“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.”

Differential turnout is what wins elections.

Can you get more of your people to the polls than your opponent can?

That’s the question.
