      Not an impressive list.....


      People who don't care, don't know and thus vote ignorantly and because they will be punished if they don't, are not likely to be constructive. Democracy requires an engaged and informed electorate - not police forcing people. I believe the ABILITY to vote should be very broad but I reject police MANDATING it of people who don't care and don't know.

      But I also hold to this: If one chose to not vote, they forfeit their "right" to complain.
      We are justified by works - just not our own.

      When choosing to follow a leader they also forfeit the right to criticize or boast in achievements but rather to assimilate into said leader. That’s why John the Baptist stated the increase must be in Christ. That only comes from a narrow way technically.

      Factchecker find me some facts ...

      A little light humour about facts ..

      Saint Jude, author of the new testament letter.

      He is the patron of impossible causes because the scriptural Letter of St. Jude, which he authored, urges Christians to persevere in difficult times.

      Fact is the narrow way doesn’t have a round table of Randy Arthurs men.
