    I will vote>>Kindly check this

    I will vote
    How long I will blame the politicians for the mess-up they had created in my country
    I know itís my duty to stand against corruption to save my country
    I will vote
    How long I will wait for others to take initiative?
    I am sure if I will take a step, others will follow my footsteps
    I will vote
    Politicians think they are leaders and they can do anything whatever they want to
    They need to know that they are just servants, who have to serve the country in the best interest of its people
    I will vote
    Although none of the candidates deserves my vote.
    Because this is not a reason but an excuse.

    *Politicians think they are leaders and they can do anything whatever they want to
    They need to know that they are just servants, who have to serve the country in the best interest of its people

    Because This is not a reason but an excuse.

    *You should make a choice here--do you want to say anything or whatever. I like "whatever" because it sounds slightly more negative. I would leave out the "to" at the end because it is correct without. Otherwise add a "do" to the end of it: "they can do whatever they want to do"

    **I would choose to say "none of the candidates deserve my vote" because none can take a singular or plural verb depending on the meaning of the word they refer to, so you would say "none of the money is" but "none of the candidates are"

    The ending sounds slightly strange, because the line beginning with "although" is a clause and not a full sentence, but you could argue that it continues from the line "I will vote." But I would change the final line to read: This is an excuse not a reason. It sounds more powerful.

    Good luck!
