I have children born and raised on this island and they have blessed me with 5 grandchildren .I am a blue collar working man not a career politician. I know the day to day issues of living here and the challenges of raising a family on this island, whereas the so called elite politicians here have lost touch of the people here .I also have an educated understanding of the Constitution of the U.S. and its writers intent. And as we have seen these last two years our island and state politicians have completely ignored our rights and liberties granted to us by God almighty.
I do wish they would quit changing our climate. At present the only threat to our environment is the government poisoning us and altering our climate for their evil plans. The powers that be need to stop this and the public needs to be educated in the truth about this subject Those who are informed know exactly what im talking about. I propose a program to educate and inform those who dont know what im talking about
Improved? That is the wrong word to use here.This last two years was a total debacle. Fear was used to get people to give up their freedom. There was nothing to fear except the government. the Constitution is based upon the rights of the individual. If you want to stay home stay home. if you want to go work and play we have the right to . And noone can nor should ever tell us we cant. People living their lives free doesnt intrude on anyone. But demanding we all lockdown intrudes on everyone. The right of the individual is supreme. That is the only way for a society to prosper.
