I believe the past is relevant, sometimes more than others of course. In most cases we are seeing history being repeated, so it is most relevant.

VOTE: November 8th, 2016. This Tuesday!!!!

If someone tries to convince you that one party
OR the other is evil, un-American, or un-Christian
they are either lying or they
are extremely naive and mis-informed.
They are disrespecting your intelligence and trying to influence you with
fear and hatred. People supporting different platforms are not a monolithic
group, both parties have their
moderate to extreme supporters.
If someone tries to tell you that two parties or candidates are just the same, that there is no difference, or that it is just the choice of the lesser of two evils they are trying to suppress your vote by distracting you with ambiguity.
Apathy is the purpose of this argument. By encourage you to be disinterested in voting they are assuming your vote will be against their candidate. They either can't make a valid argument for their candidate or they assume you are one of the 'sheep' they can't convince... because they believe you are incapable of making a decision due to your being brainwashed or fooled by lies. Don't believe that they aren't going to vote.
We are a great country because of our diversity.
Great leaders have historically emerged from many varied political parties, religious beliefs, races, sexual orientation, creeds and walks of life.

If someone is going to unite us
then ask yourself
who has done the least to divide us.
