How Important is Your Vote?

Imagine my surprise when I saw this video fantasizing that my vote swings the election to McCain. Take a look… you might want to customize this video and send it to your friends, regardless of your (or their) political viewpoint. By the way, when I do vote, this video may have to be updated to show McCain winning by two.

I guess the moral of this video is “Vote” (regardless of which candidate you support). Take a look at some of the ways history has been shaped by just one vote:

* In 1645 ONE VOTE gave Oliver Cromwell control of England.

* In 1649 ONE VOTE caused Charles I of England to be executed.

* In 1776 ONE VOTE gave America the English language instead of German.

* In 1800 ONE VOTE in the Electoral College gave Thomas Jefferson the Presidency over Aaron Burr.

* In 1839 ONE VOTE elected Marcus Morton Governor of Massachusetts.

* In 1845 ONE VOTE brought Texas into the Union.

* In 1868 ONE VOTE saved President Andrew Johnson from impeachment.

* In 1876 ONE VOTE gave Rutherford D. Hayes the Presidency of the United States.

* In 1876 ONE VOTE changed France from a Monarchy to a Republic.

* In 1916 ONE VOTE won Woodrow Wilson the Presidency by carrying California by less than one vote per precinct.

* In 1923 ONE VOTE gave Adolph Hitler leadership of the Nazi Party.

* In 1948 ONE VOTE gave Harry Truman the Presidency by carrying California by less than one vote per precinct.

* In 1960 ONE VOTE per precinct in Illinois would have given Richard Nixon the Presidency over John Kennedy.
