WE have less than 1 week before the country goes to the polls….I try to be an FYI blog……so I will give my readers a site so they can check out the positions and issues and the people running…..so please check it out and get out the vote….
Election news from a diverse assortment of trustworthy sources, curated by Pocket. What you’ll find: Issue explainers, polling, and reporting and analysis from outlets with a track record of accuracy. What you won’t find: Endorsements and opinion pieces.
An observation about the country at the time of the Constitution still rings true today…..Unfortunately, leaving election control to individual states led to unfair voting practices in the U.S. At first, white men with property were the only Americans routinely permitted to vote. President Andrew Jackson, champion of frontiersmen, helped advance the political rights of those who did not own property. By about 1860, most white men without property were enfranchised. But African Americans, women, Native Americans, non-English speakers, and citizens between the ages of 18 and 21 had to fight for the right to vote in this country.
GSFP is endorsing NO one……We just want the voter to be informed…..
I feel that voting will change little….the theatrics will increase but the mov e to make the country a safer and better nation will go nowhere.
Best remember the words of John Adams…….
“We electors have an important constitutional power placed in our hands: we have a check upon two branches of the legislature, as each branch has upon the other two; the power I mean of electing at stated periods, one branch, which branch has the power of electing another. It becomes necessary to every subject then, to be in some degree a statesman: and to examine and judge for himself of the tendencies of political principles and measures. “
Sadly these days his wise words fall on deaf ears…..the American voter prefers a personality not principles and in return the country suffers greatly.
Please use all sources and make an informed decision with your vote.
