Election Day Thoughts

A popular Government, without popular information, or the means of acquiring it, is but a Prologue to a Farce or a Tragedy; or, perhaps both. Knowledge will forever govern ignorance: And a people who mean to be their own Governors, must arm themselves with the power which knowledge gives.” –James Madison (letter to W.T. Barry, 4 August 1822); Reference: Letters and other Writings of James Madison, vol. 3 (276).

Please do justice to your right to vote: No matter who you end up voting for, just make an informed vote when you go to the polls today.

Let's hope and pray that this election ends well for our country - no matter who the victor is. Let's do all that we can to prevent the demise of this Republic. Let's all work to preserve our rights and liberties, and protect and defend our Constitution.

Take a moment to remember all those who fought and died for your right to cast a ballot, especially as we reflect upon Veteran's Day.

As far as the voting process goes:

One last thought:

If you have been voting for politicians who promise to give you goodies at someone else's expense, then you have no right to complain when they take your money and give it to someone else, including themselves” - Thomas Sowell

Good luck David Aron running for CT State Representative in Hamden - I hope you win!

(You too Joe Visconti - Theresa McGrath - and all of my other friends running for office!)
