I would take a more conservative approach. Require masks and practice social distancing but not to the level of shutting businesses doors. Require all individuals to practice both of these if out and about. Those who refuse, are the ones who are are risk to others. Should be refused service till this has gone away. It has proven that gathering in groups is has made others vulnerable. I truly don’t think others understand the dangers of this virus. The damaging effects of lungs and heart even to those with no symptoms is very scary. People also don’t want to hear what’s at risk and it’s hard to change a lifestyle that you have only lived by thus far..
Here are my thoughts on voting 1. Mail in voting is at risk for high levels of fraud. As proven, there are illegals who voted . All it takes is one errant mail service worker to throw away ballots and change numbers. Proof of ID needs to be required
There are so many things wrong with our current healthcare system I don’t know where to start. Since my husband is a radiation oncologist, we see first hand. The current system we have now, takes saving lives away from physician care among other issues, Instead, with our current situation, I want to know why there is not a moratorium on how much insurance companies can charge. At the advent of “Obamacare, “ premiums skyrocketed. Insurance now seem to pay smaller portions. Patients who came through the ER on 3rd shift. Used to be seen regardless of having insurance or not Now no one is seen unless a medical emergency. Many times the medical centers wrote those patient expenses off. Today, it’s not possible. Sadly Medicaid has become a burden as a huge number don’t want to pay for themselves. However there really needs to be free clinics and Medicaid if proven unable to pay and a record of job history. Handicapped or seniors,however Should be Exempt of this and seen regardless.
I cannot be in favor of gun control basically as we see with the current situation , these people carrying AK 47s are lawless and even with gun control, they would acquire guns anyway and use them against those, who are innocent . In these times I feel people have the right to protect their homes and families.
Limited terms. I cannot express that enough. If they are good at what they do, then apply for another position in another area of government, but looking at how these people act and work after being there 40 years has woke this country up of corruption
Yes.
These are very important issues. For instance locally, the city has been determining wether to rip down Century 2 instead of repurpose, as they have every other historical building. That building is viable and still in use. The cost is way out there to tear down and rebuild something else, as with the new Overpriced ball field, Yet, antiquated computers and education, foster care and like issues are not addressed with proper funding? I think these people need a trip to a real big city and see how it’s done. Leaving all these very issues underfunded and unaddressed , especially at a local level is not fathomable to me.look at the anger and unrest across the country. They want better education. Invest in the future invest in these kids or we stand to lose freedom or liberty
Form committees and volunteers if possible to address these issues. This one is hard. I am u sure we have all the answers yet, however we need to arrive with some soon.
Oh how dearly I want this to happen, I see voting happening because of pressure from the party , or special agendas and not because they felt it was the right or not right thing to do. I made mention when I decided to run, I am not voting for a party. I am voting for the people. What’s best for the people.. I have to sleep at night and answer to my Lord. We owe it to take care of the people we are to represent.
Yes
