Let me begin this month by saying - here's your trigger warning.
There may be things below that may offend you. I was raised to speak my mind and tell the truth, no matter how uncomfortable. When it comes to politics and legislation it seems your on one side or the other. I myself am Libertarian. I have voted for candidates in both parties. As I said last month, it's more about your position than your party. I don't like double talk, when I ask you a question give me a straight answer. I don't want to hear about "common sense" solutions to issues. The one thing I can say for sure is when it comes to Legislative Hall
there is no "common sense". During the last incarnation of the mandatory helmet law bill,
Rep. Sean Lynn (D) Dover used that statement during the committee hearing where it was killed.
If it happens again ABATE of Delaware will be there to fight tooth and nail to stop it.
There is a rumor that he will again introduce another mandatory helmet law bill next session. That is why it's so important to REGISTER AND VOTE. In the state of Delaware you must be registered to vote in the state primary by August 11, 2018. If you're not registered do it now! The primary will be held on September 6, 2018. The deadline to register for the General election is October 13, 2018 and the general election will be held on November 6, 2018. I don't know about you but I'm tired of politicians trying to tell me what to do for "my own good". No one is in a better position than me to make that decision. The number one responsibility you have as American citizen is to vote. You don't have to take the unrelenting attack on any of your freedoms lying down. VOTE!
Send the people back to their former professions.
Recently there we a flurry of bills aimed to restrict our Constitutional rights. I was faced with the question of
what have I done to protect those rights. I am a life member of the national organization that defends those
rights but I wasn't involved on the state level. I fixed that my joining the Delaware group. My point is what have you done to defend your right to ride without a helmet? What have you done to make accent lighting legal? What have you done to enhance the penalties if your right of way is violated while riding?
ABATE of Delaware has advocated for these issues and many more.
Add your voice to the chorus and join your local ABATE.
We can do so much more with your help.
