Are you registered to vote?
That was the question that started my trip down the rabbit hole of my perceptions of the political process, parties and candidates.
What the hell do I need to register to vote for? I don't even know any of the platforms or candidates.
Did you cringe? I did. So I gotta say...
My name is Mandi and I am a bad American. Since turning of legal age to vote, there have been 6 Presidential elections and quite a few others. I have voted in 1, Yes, that's right I said it. I have vote in 1 election in the last 25 years.
I am fully aware that I am partially responsible for the clusterfuck our country has become because I didn't bother to have a voice. I also didn't bother to complain about what the sitting President of the time did because I wasn't even registered so I felt I had no right to comment.
However, with the many changes my life has taken and I suppose I am just getting fucking old because I feel it is tine fo rme to stand up and vote. After the last 2 years with 'Cheeto-in-Chief' making life difficult for those who are already oppressed, or fighting to survive, the only thing coming to mind is..."It's NOT FAIR!"
So here is where I start. I am not politicially educated (my family kept/keeps that to themselves), but I am learning. I may not have all the answers, but I know what my community needs and what my brothers/sisters/nb family/etc. want. So...
My name is Mandi. I am going to be a VOTING American. I will learn and make votes based on what wil make the best efforts for my community and country.

I have spent quite a few years writing short stories that never quite fit into the 'normal' genre. When I came across the different erotica genres I was overjoyed. I had found my writing family. I hope that everyone enjoys what I've written. Please feel free to send me a comment/suggestion good/bad/indifferent. I appreciate all feedback! Bright Blessings!
