Do you plan to vote in Tuesday's primary election?

July 28, 2010

Ross Boelling ( in Tonganoxie) says...

“Absolutely. Participate in the process or be silent; it's your choice. Don't whine about the outcome if you don't take the time to be informed and vote.”

Amy Lawson ( in Tonganoxie) says...

“I don't know. I don't feel educated about the candidates to make a qualified decision at this time.”

Bret Koch ( in ) says...

“I am not a political person at all, so I will not be taking part in the vote.”

Yea, Bret! You're the model of why we, The People of the United States, simply do not deserve the Republic that we have been given. Given through the spilled blood of millions of Americans through the ages.

Such a simple, trite response to the question, "Do you plan to exercise your civil responsibility as an American?" I have so much faith in the direction of this country (face in palm).

YES, I vote.................but "Participate in the process or be silent"....sorry Dude, the right to whine is secured in the Bill of Rights weather you vote or not. "do not deserve the Republic that we have been given"....deserve has nothing to do with it. The fact is that the millions of Americans who spilled blood for this country did so to preserve the rights given to us in The Constitution. That is the rights of everyone, not just the people we agree with. If your faith in this country's direction has you that bummed out, be reminded of another right.... The right to leave.

Chris: When Ben Franklin emerged from the Constitutional Convention and was asked, "What form of government will the people have? A Republic or a Monarchy?"

Ben's reply: "A Republic, if you can keep it."

That's my point. We've lost the right to keep it because we are disengaged from the issues at hand, holding our representatives accountable, and are more interested in American Idol than checking the voting records of incumbents who are up for re-election. That's my point. "Rights" are easily removed. All it takes is a court to interpret the Constitution in such a way that the "right" completely changes meaning. All it takes is an amendment to the Constitution -- a process, by the way, that completely circumvents the people.

You think that the fact we have the Constitution protects us from rights being stripped away? You simply are missing the bigger picture of what is happening.
