One thing we Americans hold dear

One thing we Americans hold dear to our heart is the opportunity to express our-self in the election process. Many, however don’t thing that their vote means any thing. I have heard it said that my vote doesn’t count so why vote? If you feel like being patriotic pleas feel free to re-post this. The next time you ask if one votes count, consider the following:

# 1. 1776, by one vote gave America the English language, over German.

# -9- 1923, November 8, members of the them recently formed revolutionary political party, by one vote chose Adolph Hitler to be the leader of the Nazi Party.

#-10- 1889, by one vote margin, Idaho became a state.

#-11- 1645, one vote gave Oliver Cromwell control of England.

#-12-1824, the House of representatives defeated front runner Andrew Jackson by one vote and elected John Quincy Adams as the nations 6th President.

#-13- 1714, one vote placed King George I on the throne of England and restored the monarchy.

# -14- 1800, when the results of the electoral college votes were opened, there was a tie for President between Thomas Jefferson and Aaron Barr. The tie was broken by one vote, placing Jefferson as president.

# -15- The Alaska Purchase of 1867 was rectified by just one vote.

    Peter Vandever remind me which churches in America still practice 5-fold today including all 5 + the 12 gifts especially Word of Wisdom – I cant think of ONE full Gospel church no more

    WHO and WHAT is The Next American Revolution Rev. Dr. William J. Barber II ??? The Word and the Spirit Joined – The Wedding of Purity and Power – Trump Is Consolidating Far-Right Power Globally – Honor Thy Planet – Living on a Demobilized Planet – God Gave His All By Sending Jesus

    Living on a Demobilized Planet By Tom Engelhardt Planet of the Surreal
    Turning 75 in the Age of Trump As I turn 75, there´s no simpler way to put it than this: I´m an old man on a new planet — and, in case it isn´t instantly obvious, that´s not good news on either score

    I probably would have thought you stark raving mad. Here I am in an America not just with all the weirdness of Donald Trump, but with a media that feeds on his every bizarre word, tweet, and act as if nothing else were happening on the face of the Earth. Or how would I have reacted if you had told me that from Brazil to Poland, the Philippines to England, people across the planet were choosing their own Donald Trumps to lead them into that world in crisis? Why is it increasingly a Trumpian planet of the surreal, not a planet of the all-too-real?
