"I am passionate about voting and our right to vote," declares Baccili. Realizing that there was more that she could do to help people see that they can personally make a difference in the upcoming 2004 election, Dr. Pat created http://www.Ipledgetovote.com.
The initiative operates on the concept that people can manifest change by committing to something...anything...in writing. IPledgeToVote.com gives people the opportunity to pledge their intention to vote. It also gives pledgers a way to change the habits of their non-voting friends, family and coworkers.
Besides the pledge form, the site offers links to sites where would-be voters can
educate themselves about the issues, the political system...and why their vote does count.
Dr. Pat has committed her life to helping people break through "Crust" and to become all they can be. Her mission in life to help people remove limiting thoughts, beliefs and actions which I call ÂCrustÂ so that they can live life full out! Living life full out means owning your power! The ÂahaÂ for her recently was that there are many people who have some crust around voting.
Oprah demonstrated on her show about voting that some people have Crust that keeps them from using their power to vote. Living life full out means owning your power! Here in the United States, we have the Power to Vote. If you think your vote won't count, that's your Crust talking. If you resent politicians and your resentment keeps you from voting, that's also your Crust talking. Not voting is a refusal to use the power that's yours by Constitutional right. Excuses are Crust! Excuses that help us give away our power. Don't give it away! Not believing that your vote counts is "Crust." This "crusty" belief is not the Truth of anyone!
Pledging at and letting others know about http://www. IPledgeToVote.com are ways to encourage people to empower themselves and others during this election process.
Still doubting your power to make a difference? Take time to reflect on these facts:
ÂIf only 3% more citizens had voted in 2000, the election results might have been decidedly different.
ÂAlmost 76 million eligible Americans (41%) chose not to vote in the 2000 national election. Just imagine what a difference all those voters could have made.
ÂIn the 1960 presidential election, one vote per precinct in Illinois, Missouri, New Jersey, and Texas sent John F. Kennedy to the White House instead of Nixon.
ÂThe next president probably will appoint at least two Supreme Court Justices...something that could affect the course of American history and civil rights for decades to come.(Want more details? Click here).
ÂThe 19th Amendment to the Constitution, guaranteeing a woman's right to vote, was ratified on August 26, 1920 when one vote was switched from a "no" to a "yes."
ÂOne vote in 1776 determined that English, not German, would be the official language of the government of the United States.
ÂSeveral of our states, including California, Idaho, Oregon, Texas, and Washington, became states because of one vote.
Numerous people have pledged their support to this effort and the development of the IPledgeToVote.com website. Please join us so that we can reach as many people as possible in these crucial final weeks of this year's election. Here are your options:
