Voting dangerously


August 9, 2018 | View PDF

A sign on Highway 195 between Colfax and Pullman urges readers to "Vote Republican. Keep America moving in the right direction."

But our current administration and Congress are moving us in a direction that many of us find unacceptable. We’re moving in deplorable ways to deal with the Zero Tolerance mess. Who’d ever think we’d hear the government suggest that the ACLU take over their responsibility to find parents of children deported prior to reunification, or that the wife of a decorated Iraq war veteran would be deported for no apparent reason?

They’re ditching and insulting and slapping tariffs on our allies; Trump’s denying that Russia attacked our elections and is still at it

But wait! There’s more. Every day. We are not moving in the right direction, and many of our current representatives seem unable to speak up or help stem the tide. Don’t make this the year of voting dangerously. Straight ticket is no way to vote in a republic. Vet our candidates, vote thoughtfully, and help America become America again.
