One More for Greg Hughes!
Let’s go vote already, Iowa!
I voted today, and I got the sticker to prove it! It feels great, like a power surge jolting through the pituitary gland. The sensation approaches that feeling that comes from being in full control of your life, err, as well as one could imagine that feeling!
Linn County in Iowa has the voting process streamlined so well that it took me less than 20 minutes to register (as a new resident) and receive my ballot. Of course, I voted early. That’s a benefit we enjoy here in Iowa, one among a growing number of states that provide this valuable service. I would encourage all of my fellow Iowa citizens to take advantage of early voting to avoid the lines and the fray of Election Day.
We’ve come a long way, brother. Full circle, it might even seem. Several times.
Champions for voter rights have historically fought for the ability to vote freely and unfettered by the political interests of those having a direct influence on them.
The article at the link below relates an engaging account of the early days as voters exercised their rights, to the extent of fending off thugs at times. The story recounts the evolution of our voting system and the perpetual struggle to live up to the calling: “Are you not a man in the full vigor of manhood and strength?”
This is the Spirit of Democracy. Keep it alive!
Letter to the Editor:
It’s time the Supreme Court stops protecting bad Judges that are totally incompetent. These judges have Alzheimers, brain cancer, and have been caught sleeping at the bench! Were these bad attorneys made into judges?
A man testifies to choking his wife during divorce court and the judge did nothing.
Man has daughter with an Amish lady at age 3 ½. The Amish community convinces her to come back and the Elders wanted the father to have nothing to do with his child. For 3 ½ years he fought in Iowa court and still is unable to see his daughter! The lady moved to Wisconsin and the father petitioned there. The very first judge grants visitation. Now, why didn’t Iowa do this? Oh, money! He spent an obscene amount to someIowa attorneys, and for what?
An Iraq Veteran was incarcerated for being behind in child support even after he got caught up. 60 days over $600.00. How does this serve anyone? Missouri Congressman Joe Walsh is $117,000 behind and he’s not in jail! What’s wrong with this picture?
It’s time for an overhaul we must have accountability of our judicial system and judges.
With accountability disaster relief, DHS, and family Law would be greatly improved. Other countries have started appointing common people as judges. It really works. Find out more at http://www.hughesforcongress.us/ or call.
Braley and Lange will never address these problems. This problem is costing you $1 Billion a year.
