Democracy, is it just for foreign countries?

Friday, October 3, 2008

All the people in our military from Sharp County must be very disappointed, as they are risking their lives for the freedom and democracy for people in Iraq and other foreign countries, and their people at home in Sharp County are not allowed to vote for or against the wet/dry issue. How come freedom and democracy is only important for the people in foreign countries?

This is not just a wet/dry issue, it's our right as American citizens to be able to vote and decide what the majority of the people want, not for a few people to make the decisions for us.
