Election Day in Happy Valley

It is Election Day in Happy Valley. In a few hours it will all be over; the fate of millions will be decided. I hope that people will vote according to principle rather than raw emotion, but that may be asking too much. All I know is that the local members of the party whose presidential candidate advocates CHANGE have shown no respect for private property. They have stolen our yard signs twice and vandalized them three times. Such champions of liberty have little scruple about violating our family's right to freedom of speech, just as they do not hesitate to unlawfully enter our yard in order to destroy or steal their opponent's signs. It is not the signs which bother me, but the trespassing on private property, and the determination to keep us from expressing our opinion, at all costs. It does not bode well for the future of this country.

Meanwhile, John Zmirak in his article "It Can Happen Here" makes some timely points.
