Something to think about...

Let's discuss this quote:

"One of [the] most important components of empowerment is political empowerment. We, in MAS, believe that our obligation to empower our community through political involvement stems from understanding our obligations as Muslims. Participating actively in the process of voting is a first step towards that political empowerment so vital to our ultimate goal of raising and developing exemplary citizens who will contribute to the greatness of our country, and whose convictions and dedication will illuminate the brilliance and beauty of the great message of Islam. By making sure our votes are counted, we will be empowered with the ability to construct an effective political strategy and develop a relevant political discourse - making our community not only visible and active, but able and productive as well."
