Kudos to everyone


I’m so very proud to live in a community where a pig at the fair sells for almost $32,000. Kudos to everyone involved.

Become more involved


It’s my contention that being forced to vote on a voting machine, where I only select the candidates I want to vote for and the machine votes on my behalf, is unconstitutional and deprives me from casting a ballot, as the machine does the voting.

Also, how do you ensure an accurate count, recount or expose electronic errors or manipulations that have already occurred in numerous locations and elections. It would appear that the voting machine was adopted for the express purpose of controlling an election outcome.

The federal government is trying very hard to corrupt our elections by preventing the states from instituting voter ID and proof of citizenship when registering to vote. The present administration lost the presidential vote in every state that had voter ID that could indicate the value of cleaning up the voter rolls and stopping all illegal voting.

We the people need to become more involved in our elections by making sure that those ineligible to vote aren’t allowed to cancel out our vote. I’m sending this letter to all my government representatives, both state and federal, but do not expect anything but the usual unconstitutional inaction.
