Taylor In case you don't think your vote will mean much on Election Day, think about these nine elections where a single vote changed history. They were: 1645-One vote gave Oliver Cromwell control of England. 1649-One vote caused Charles 1 of England to be executed. 1776-One vote pave America the English language instead of German. 1839- One vote elected Marcus Morton governor of Massachsetts.

1845-One vote brought Texas into the Union. 1868- One vote saved President Andrew Johnson from im peachment. 1876-Ome vote gave Rutherford D. Mayes the U.S. presidency.

1876-One vote changed France from monarchy to a Republic. 1923-One vote gave Adolph Hitler leadership of the Nazi Party. Let us consider for a moment if. in 1923. Mitter was not chosen to head the Nazi Party.

Would there have been military build up and ultimately World War 11? What would the world be like today if there had been not war and need to find more sophisticated weaponry? Would that mean we would not be in arms race with the communist countries? Obviously, we do not have any answers to these questions. We're sure those who are students of world politics and history may be able to speculate on what would have happened, no one can know for sure So don't let your vote go to waste: Exercise your right to make a choice. Be part of history in the making MILLER FUNERAL HOME, INC. 756-4533 115 W. Columbia Farmington, Mo..
