A teachable moment

I was surprised by the anguish created by Secretary of State Ruth Johnson's request to have voters reaffirm their citizenship during our last election.

Let us recalibrate her request for another possibility.

Perhaps she was attempting to create a teachable moment to educate non-citizens that they are not eligible to vote.

To believe that voter fraud won't occur in the November election is both wishful thinking and naive.

Let us become angrier about the state of our economy and the slippery slope to disaster that our past and present politicians put us on.
