Please realize that you are making a choice by not voting - you're letting others decide how this country will move forward. Don't make the mistake I did four years ago. Get registered, get educated and then get yourself to the polls this November. There's nothing you will do that day that could be more important.

To the editor:
If Al Gore were President today, would American soldiers be dying needlessly in Iraq? No. Gore made a speech before our invasion arguing that attacking Iraq would distract from the war against al-Qaeda.
Election 2000 certainly affected the lives of the thousands of soldiers deployed in Iraq, and the lives of the hundreds who have been killed or wounded there.
The military is overstretched, and the President already plans to move troops from Europe and Korea into the Middle East. If reelected, he may reinstate the draft. I hope this explains to Michael Myers why election 2004 will affect him.
