what do Tanya Tucker, Brandi Carlisle, Lizzo and Selena Gomez have to do with the 2022 mid-term elections?

Oh well, gosh, golly. Now that you mention it – nothing, unless you count the one vote thing in the upcoming elections on November 8th. Each one of these American singers has one vote in the election which is now fewer than three weeks away.

Sorry, everyone. In a democracy we all get one vote. No matter how talented we are, how sophisticated or erudite or ignorant – we each get one vote. Our votes are our voices. Use them, people. No excuses, no regrets.

inflation, gas prices, gun crimes, too

bring us the headlines we all must view

but one thing’s for sure in 2022

the supremes took away our right to choose

Your vote, your opportunity to vote for a party that will respect a woman’s right to control her own body. Restore Roe.

    I filled in my ballot this morning, and am dropping it off tomorrow as my travels take me past the drop off box.

  3. Our human mommy says she actually gets two votes because she makes a copy of her completed sample ballot, hands it to our human daddy, and he just follows along in the voting booth. 😉 Does that make her one of those fancy social media influencers? As we say in Louisiana, Geaux Vote!
