Dear Editor, My political rant for this week. So if you don’t like this kind of thing stop reading now………….

First, when I first become of voting age (this was only a couple years ago, but still..) the politicians came to your home and told you what they stood for and what they plan to do while they are in office and then ask for your support. If you agreed with them you would put a sign in your yard showing your support. I have never lived in the city limits which means the politicians even came out into the country to visit and campaign. In the past 5 years and probably more like 10 years, I have had no politician knock on my door. This day and time it seems that the politicians put on social media that if you want a yard sign let me know.

Second, I feel that most politicians are getting votes from who you know. Friends, family, etc… If you are known in the community then you get votes. I always thought you vote for someone for what they plan on doing for you and your community. But again, this day and time we don’t know what they plan on doing. I guess this is so that know one can say you promised us this, cause (more…)
