Transcript

Tom the Dancing Bug by Ruben Bolling VOTING AN AMERICAN CHOICE! Grandson: Golly, Gramps! I'm old enough to vote! Grandfather: Now, hold on there, hot shot! Grandfather: Have you given proper thought to whether you WANT to vote? Grandson: Gee, I... Grandfather: It's your American responsibility to carefully consider that! Why, our founding fathers didn't want EVERYONE to vote! Do you know better than them? Grandfather: Throughout our history, many brave Americans fought for the right of folks not to vote! Solider: Ow, my wrist! Grandson: Gosh, I never thought of it that way! Grandfather: There are people in places like China who would love for the opportunity to freely refrain from voting in a fair and open election! Grandson: But I thought one person, one vote is the American way! Grandfather: Boy, read the Constitution: it's full of mechanisms to give some votes more power than others! We the People And with sensible gerrymandering and prudent poll pruning, our leaders can be sure it stays that way! Grandson: You're right, Gramps! I"m exercising my right - no, my PRIVILEGE - to not vote! Grandfather: Now you're talkin'! The exercise of restraint in the service of patriotism is no vice!
