  • Your choice and your vote are a part of your duty

    By Jon Park

    I recently read a post on Facebook that basically said there are those who are willing to sit out the election next November, if their candidate does not win the primary.

    And that is how we ended up with four more years of Barack ‘I have a pen and a phone’ Obama, and ‘Get Over It’ Beshear.

    In the last gubernatorial elections, there were those who did not care for, then, Sen. David Williams’ demeanor, and sat home.
