Do You Want Democratic Policies for Rowan County?

Posted: May 28, 2014 in Uncategorized

Letter to the Editor…

Edmund Burke once said, “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”

The only thing necessary for the triumph of Democratic Policy next term is for Republicans (and Tea Party Patriots) to do exactly what they are doing:  NOTHING.

Please allow me to ask a few questions.  Whether or not you want Democratic Policy to succeed in Rowan County will be self-evident in your answers.

1.  Will you enjoy paying higher taxes?
2.  Do you enjoy watching the Board of Education frivolously spending your tax money on things that will not improve education in our county?
3.  It is acceptable to you for leaders on the Board of Education to make “questionable” deals with their friends at your expense?
4.  Are you okay with the Board of Education spending $6 million dollars of your tax money to build a new building instead of spending $3 million dollars renovating a building the county already owns?
5.  Does giving up more of your freedom seem appealing to you?
6.  Are you willing to sit back for four years while a Democratic-controlled Board of Education racks up debt for YOU to pay?

If you answered “yes” to more than four of these questions, you are clearly a Democrat.  If you answered “no” to any of these questions, then you need to get up off of your…well…you know…”chair” and DO something.  It you keep doing what you’ve been doing, you’re going to keep getting what you’ve been getting.  

What You Can Do…

First, make your voice heard!  Write a letter to the editor.  It can be simple and short.  You can simply tell readers that you don’t want your taxes to go up and why.  Tell them that you do not want more wasteful spending.  Tell them what’s on your mind.  You don’t have to be an English major to write a letter to the editor.  Just write something!  Tell people what you want them to hear.  (Note:  You can email your letters to  Remember, they are limited to 200 words.  You must also include your name and address.)

Second, don’t fear the Democrats.  At least up until now, it is against the law for them to drag you and out beat you for voicing your opinion.  But, remain silent long enough and that too will change.

Third, get informed.  Come to the meetings.  Listen to what’s going on.  Learn what the options are.  Then, tell people what YOU think.  It’s YOUR county.  It’s YOUR schools.  It’s YOUR elected officials.  Tell them what’s on YOUR mind.
