Down on one of the previous posts Audrey Marie Spanbauer dropped the “patriotic duty” bomb. I am amazed it took this long. This was on our “sign theft” post from yesterday. She said it is out patriotic duty to vote yes for the referendum. As one might guess she is a staunch yes supporter. Just setting this up so you know who she is.
I will state this now and publicly that it is NOT anyone’s patriotic duty to vote NO or Yes. That is a load of (Beeeeeep). Some might argue that it is our civic duty to vote. I can accept that. It certainly is our right to vote but it is also a choice.
I encourage everyone to vote and become informed. I will never stoop to calling someone unpatriotic or unamerican because they choose to vote a certain way. Audrey will say that isn’t what she is saying but yet it is. To say voting YES is patriotic that is saying that voting NO is the opposite AKA unpatriotic.
I know that they will DO ANYTHING to get people to vote yes: Lie, steal, insult, demonize people, and ignore the truth. That is their right. I think that is the wrong way to go myself but that is my personal opinion. Knock yourselves out and belittle as much of the population as you want but don’t be surprised when they vote NO. We will win. I believe and HOPE that we will so some sanity can return to our city. We can boot Mack and his ilk out and get some real leadership that knows how to properly budget and protect the kids.
