Freedoms Obligation For many the concept of freedom is a mere given like food or shelter We reap its benefits without giving much thought but when it is taken away from us we come to the realization that while many of us were born and granted an emancipating and intangible gift this freedom sits upon conditions that we must acknowledge and act on to maintain our rights Voting is virtually the only obligation the United States government expects from citizens in return for freedom In the big picture voting does not seem like an unreasonable request in return for freedom but a majority of adult citizens do not take even a few minutes to use their freedom for the good of the country We live in a country which in its adolescent years fought long and hard to define itself as a nation based on freedoms We as citizens owe our lives and our servitude to this republic Yet it seems that the more advanced American society becomes the further away we wander from the nation our founding fathers once envisioned With every election we move closer to a unitary form of control in which people have no say in their government In more than eighty years the American voter turnout has yet to reach even sixty-five percent In the year 2000 only fifty-one percent of registered voters took a trip to the polls for the presidential election What does this tell us That America is full of lazy bums Not exactly This tells us that we as citizens dont truly understand the importance of voting The right to vote is a large part of what makes our society unique Voting is not just about casting a ballot it is about maintaining a free society Voting is a privilege that citizens of the United States tend to take for granted People of some foreign countries literally die for the right of a political voice
