Election Day

Our democracy allows us to choose our government representatives. Election Day is the appointed day for us to vote. Though our freedom depends upon this right, many eligible voters do not vote. I believe our country has become too large and too complicated for the current system, not to mention the many claims of voter fraud. Every eligible voter has a social security number that attaches that person with a date of birth and much more. Why can’t we allow voters a week to vote online, whether at home or at voting sites with computers and support? The security issues should be easier to control and there should be greater participation, not to mention the time savings.

Independence Day

As we celebrate the signing of The Declaration of Independence, which explained why we wanted to be independent from British rule, let’s think about what independence means to us as a society. Our independence gives us freedom, which does not mean FREE everything. The Founding Fathers realized that independence comes with a cost and a government was formed to protect the interests of our country. Somehow it seems we have become an entitled people who expect the government to take care of all needs, for “free”. Benjamin Franklin said, “When the people find they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the republic.” Truly we allow dependent people to vote for their own government funding! About 35% of Americans receive government assistance!! And many are illegal aliens!! The financial pressures on taxpayers of such BIG government is what originally caused our forefathers to declare independence. We are approaching another American Revolution, hopefully this one will be peaceful.
