It's Your Job, America

We live in an amazing country.  We are blessed with so much freedom, but, sadly, I think we take it for granted.  Why do I say this you ask?  Well, since about 58% of the population voted in the last presidential election, I'd say we take it for granted.  I mean, in 2005 in Iraq they had 75% of the population vote and that was under the threat of death for many of them.

Throughout the history of our country, many people have given their lives for the right to vote.  How hard is it for you to take a few minutes to make a choice?  Not sure about the candidates?  Get informed.  This is the 21st century.  There is more information available right now than ever before in history.  Don't just go to the candidates websites.  Go to reputable sites to find info.  There are plenty of sites that give you information on things that matter most to you.  For instance, if you believe in 2nd amendment and the right to bear arms, NSSF has a great website with candidate's views in their own words:
If you're interested in the candidates views on fishing, again in their own words, check out the Q & A from Keep America Fishing:

I leave you with a quote from Thomas Sowell as you think about your vote:

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


  1. Great quote! And now I'm curious about how the candidates feel about fishing...

    1. What did you think about their views on fishing? I will tell you there has been a lot of regulation on fishing in the last few years. Some areas have been closed or the amount of fish caught in some areas has been limited.
