14-hour shifts make poll work difficult
Prior to every election, I’m usually called and asked to again work at the polls. It’s a great way to be part of the political process and to see and encourage voters. However, the hours can get quite long: 5 a.m. through 7 p.m.
The last time I was asked, I wondered if I could work only half the day, say from noon to 7? “Oh, my, that’s never been done. We can’t do that!” the person responded. Why not? I think many more people would volunteer if the time requirement was only half the day.
‘Don’t let country decay like garbage’
I am your flag. I was born on June 14, 1777. I am more than just cloth. I am the refuge of the world’s oppressed people. I am the silent sentinel of freedom. I am the emblem of the greatest sovereign nation on earth. I am the inspiration for which American patriots gave their lives and fortunes.
I have led your sons and daughters, husbands and wives into battles to defend this great nation, some of these to never return home.
The sad part of this is we do nothing here to stand up for what they are fighting and dying for.
We have elected officials who have done nothing but tear this country apart, limb from limb.
Where are “We the People”? What do we stand for?
Do you really think when we go to the polls, it counts?
We really need to tell these people we are not going to let this happen to our country, God’s country. We are being taken apart and sold to the highest bidder.
We can put our trust in Jesus Christ our Savior. During these trying times we can pray. God is in control of everything on this earth.
