We all just voted, at least I hope you voted! And with Tax season well behind us, at times it’s important to think about if we are receiving good value for our taxes. That is really what is at the heart of voting. You are essentially helping to shape budget priorities. The modern advanced world is truly remarkable when you look at it with a historical lense. We take for granted the paved roads, infrastructure, police, food inspection, research, Justice system, education, defense and military system, etc. that make the modern world. When you vote you can think of it as making a decision on where the tax dollars go.
It is also interesting to think about how we vote everyday with every dollar we spend and invest. So make sure all your votes count and align with your higher vision for our society.
