Since the Second Amendment of the United States is under attack, I thought I would share my ideas of why it's important to be enforced to the letter. Caution, if you believe in never second-guessing the government, you may be disturbed by what follows.
Well, the readers have spoken! Or reader, that is. Remember when I suggested that you send me some of your ideas for posts? Well, John M. requested that I talk about the recent laws on marijuana legalization in Washington and Colorado. I'll do my best!
In November of 2012, the states of Washington and Colorado both approved laws that legalize the use of cannabis (also known as marijuana or “pot”). Proponents for the “legalization movement” have called this a major victory, and are continuing to advocate in other states as well as at the federal level.
Hey everyone, I just wanted to say that since today is Election Day, you should get off your computer and go vote right away! Not enough people vote, in fact, less than 50% of registered voters actually go to the polls on elections normally, and less than 50% of eligible citizens are even registered to vote! So if you're registered to vote, go to your polling place and make a difference.
By voting, you'll also help make someone's day: the poll workers at your polling place! I've been a poll worker twice, and so I know from experience that it feels great for them to see lots of people voting.
Voting is our responsibility as citizens of the United States. Every time we cast a ballot, we're fighting for democracy; when we don't go and vote, we allow non-democratic influences such as socialism and communism take over our government. Another downside to not voting is when you don't like the direction our country has been taken, you don't really get to complain about your elected officials because you help choose them!
So please join today in voting! It's your right, and a right that not many in the world are privileged to have. Vote however your conscience tells you, and vote for who you think will do the best job for our country.
I watched a little bit of the Republican National Convention this evening on foxnews.com with my father, and there were a few things that inspired me that I'd like to mention.
I was forwarded the famous "Shut Up About Colorado" article that can be found here. When I saw it, I decided I had to write a response (although I know I'm opening myself up to horrific commentary). So, here goes nothing!
