Let the people decide

Of course, when one lives in the heart of free-for-all country, it is truly demanding not to be reminded of Man’s simple rules of commandment, and how, we the People need to take control of our providence by once again voting for candidates who believe in liberty and righteousness for all.

As has always been [the case], time and people change. I definitely believe an alternative, viably sound third-party preference is critical. For people who are unsure, tired of their elected public body’s slaying their hard-earned tax money and gaining further jurisdiction over their personal lives daily, and who are unaware that elected people can be replaced, the time is ripe to consider alternative parties.

Obviously, we the People are not being represented in a forthright and honest manner. Simply put, the time is desirable for the people to—ourselves—have and should demand good character, integrity and simple, honest traits to follow. If we don’t attempt to amend our course, our downfall will become a realization, no longer to be considered the greatest nation, but rather one ruined and led by dishonest people. What do you think?

— J. H. Hayes
