November 6th is just days away, and ballots are already in mailboxes for a very big general election.

 

Oregon Congressman Greg Walden encourages everyone not to neglect their right to vote: "I tell people: even if you don't plan to vote for me, I get that. But you need to get out and vote; you really need to let your views knows. Be a participant. Sure, I don't want to lose my election, but you know what, for the sake of the country, get out and vote. Do your civic duty. It’s a citizens responsibility, it's a cherished right and privilege that a lot of people in the world don't have and yearn for."

 

He says many countries look to the United States with envy for the freedom to vote that we have, without fear of violence or retribution.

 

He points to those countries in the Mideast who just recently have established real democracies, and have voted for the first time.  "Well, not only did they wait in lines for days; but they risked being killed. If you remember, there were shootings, there were suicide bombers trying t kill democracy at its birth. And that's a tragic thing. We fortunately don't have that problem here."
