“When you vote, you are exercising political authority, you’re using force. And force, my friends, is violence. The supreme authority from which all other authorities are derived.” ~Robert A. Heinlein
Many of us who spent time overseas witnessed the phenomenon of citizens proudly displaying their violet stained fingers after voting in the first democratic elections for President in Afghanistan and Iraq. Suffrage is one of the key principles on which the United States of America was founded, and one which too many Americans today take for granted. This shirt honors the struggle of millions of people across the globe who do not yet have this right, and recognizes those who understand that voting is not only a right, but a responsibility.
