Election Day: Vote for Your Partner

Uploaded: Nov 8, 2016
Please go out and vote in the election today. You voice matters. Let it be heard.

Every day, vote for your partner, your relationship, your marriage. A lot of choices pass by (how to spend time, other attractive people, work, values, etc.) on a daily basis. It’s critical to choose each other – every day.

Choosing and being chosen daily do actually affect your brain and body. Being seen, heard, and valued bolsters your well being. Who better to do that than your beloved.

I vote for all of your relationships everyday.

Thanks Chandrama, good to remember that when we vote, we are voting for a future that helps not only our individual lives, but also those of others close to us. National security, controlled borders, school choice and abundant energy are all very important to me and those who are close to me. That is why I voted for Donald Trump. I am very happy that he won!

Yeah we like to think that every vote matters and it could be the case but in other election system, right? I mean, Hillary won the popular vote and Trump is the president - this is a little crazy, don't you think? I simply don't understand this. We should change our system in the next elections. Swing states are too important as of right now and Trump knew this and that is why he won. I hope that he will be a good president for our country...

Wonderful sentiment, Chandrama. I see too many marriages gone flat.

@George, wouldn't a more fair electoral system have apportioned to the Republican side around 16 of California's 55 votes, like the way Maine voted? Solving your swing-state campaign problem.
