There have been many interesting election seasons in America. but most of them were governed by forces outside of the electorate. This week starts the most IMPORTANT, DECISIVE and PIVOTAL elections our country has seen since the Civil War. We elected a black president who, in turn, created a great divide in America. Yet, the question is whether he has earned the trust of the voting public or not. In democracy it is not how LOUD YOU VOICE YOUR OPINION. Rather it is "one man - one vote" that decides the leadership of our localities, states and nation. We will decide on hilltops, senatorial candidates, and many other issues that will provide us a glimpse of our future. As the oil gurgles in the gulf, as immigrants from all over the globe converge on our soils, as foreign powers vie for global control, this Tuesday sets in motion the most important electoral season in our country's history. As for me, I am concerned about our Country's future. But then again, it's not only up to me.
