Calling On Conservative Voters In November

League of Women Voters Lotte Scharfman is credited with coining the phrase, “Democracy is not a spectator sport.” Scharfman, a refugee of Nazi Germany, was the League’s president until her death in 1970. She stated that in order for Democracy to “work” you have to participate, you cannot simply be an observer. As the saying goes Americans will cross an ocean to fight a war, but not cross the street to vote, a right that so many have shed their blood and tears.

A low voter turnout is again predicted for this year’s November’s midterm elections. Being a no show at the polls is the same as surrendering your vote to a neighbor who may not share your values. If you are concerned with the direction of our government now is the time to vote for candidates that defend the police, law and order and family values and reject those that advocate to legalize recreational marijuana, open borders, sanctuary cities, drivers licenses for illegal aliens, taxpayer-funded tuition for undocumented immigrants, higher gas and sales tax, abortion on demand, disrespecting our flag and removing religion from our public discourse.

Voter turnout decides elections. Go to the polls in November and vote for the lawmakers that will exercise fiscal discipline by lowering our highest in the nation property taxes and fully restore the Homestead credit, a benefit that the disabled and seniors on fixed income need to maintain and keep them in their homes.
