If You Don’t Fight For Freedom You Give It Away Without Protest

At this point I can safely say that we all have had enough of the daily news cycle. Snowflakes getting their feelings hurt on campuses, the constant attacks on the President in the media followed by counter attacks on twitter. Its enough to make me unplug from all media formats. It seems as if every aspect has become politically charged. After watching this circus over the past year or so I have come to realize that of the two major parties one wants to restrict your freedoms the other not so much.
Most of the sitting members of the Delaware House are not running this Fall.
The number one responsibility you have as a citizen is to vote.
Before you cast your ballot you need to do your homework.
The days of voting straight ticket may be gone forever.
You need to know where each candidate stands on the issues that are important to you. I hear it all the time - "I can't believe that so and so sponsored that bill or voted for it." Well, you should have known. Ask them where they stand and how they would vote if a particular bill comes up. Don't settle for "politician speak" (I'm looking at you Tom Carper) either. Expect a straight answer (Chris Coons). You are interviewing these folks for a job as your Representative, either on the State or Federal level. With the current flurry of restrictive bills about guns its only a matter of time before they resume their attack on motorcycles. Be respectful and do your homework, AND VOTE. Remember, past actions indicate future actions. In an effort to assist you in deciding who to vote for we have compiled a document that shows how each member has voted on legislation concerning motorcycles. It is loosely based on what the NRA and DSSA do for their members.
Most importantly is to vote.
It counts and it matters.
