Mark Caserta: Voter registration for the homeless is bad idea for the city of Huntington.

Liberal Democrats seem willing to do or say absolutely anything to stay in power. Their actions are proving they are willing to compromise the very heart of the city of Huntington, WV. to advance their progressive agenda. Even if it means garnering illegitimate support from voters who will refuse to bite the hand that feeds them.

We’ve witnessed the rapid decay of our fair city under this current administration. The citizens of Huntington have watched from the sidelines as our mayor has marched our city down the field of degeneracy and economic decline.

I’ve written on the city administration’s feckless approach at building an economic model on drug rehabilitation. We know we have rehab facilities in our city that are actively soliciting addicts from outside our city and state to come to Huntington for rehab. Of course, all of this is being done under the guise of compassion.

Of course, the fact that these programs and salaries, supported by your tax dollars provided based on the supply and demand of the rehab process, couldn’t possibly factor into this equation.

In a pig’s eye!

I have no doubt there are a few genuinely concerned individuals in these programs who truly have a heart for the addict. I also have no doubt there are individuals prospering financially as the need for rehab grows in our area.

Everyone wants to see addiction conquered. We just adamantly disagree on the process. Enabling an addict is a poor method of rehab. We have to provide them hope for the future – not needles.

Common sense would also dictate it would behoove these rehab houses to support an administration that would continue to pave the way for the growth of the rehab industry.

Yes, I said industry. And it’s rapidly becoming Huntington’s number one business, if not already.

So, pursuant to acquiring voters willing to support the growth of this industry, there is currently a voter registration initiative for registering the homeless and felons to vote. A homeless person would simply use an “agent’s” address as noted in their flyer promoting the program.

“No address? No problem! Based on the flyer, just ask a staff member of Harmony House and they’ll gladly cut through the red tape of voter legitimacy! Just be sure you pull the lever on the left.

How far will we allow the city of Huntington to decline under liberal rule? As economically productive people are being pushed outside our city limits, we have institutions that are readily replacing them with non-productive, dependents.

And now, we are seeing a valid liberal “quid pro quo”! We’ll provide you all the amenities and benefits of citizenship in return for your allegiance and voter support.

How about the legality of such an offering?  The potential abuse of the process is obvious!

Certainly, there couldn’t possibly be any collaboration with city officials to support this process – could there?

I submit the mayor and the deep state lurking in the shadows of our dilapidating city realize Huntingtonians have had enough of the failing liberal policies under which we’ve incurred the rapid ruin of our city. They realize to win an election, they must build a new voter base. A voter base with no allegiance to the growth of a city, but to an administration that will cuddle and comfort them.

This is an absolute debacle and a slap in the face to the citizens of Huntington.

Folks, it’s time to step up for our city. This behavior is not designed to improve Huntington. It’s designed to dominate it with liberal policies. Our city is dying a slow death. How long before it takes it’s final breath?

Stop the insanity by draining the Huntington swamp.

Seth Caserta: Criminals behind bars should not be allowed to vote.

Today, in the United States of America, we live as a free nation, under God, with Liberty and Justice for all.

Since the 1900s, the rights for African Americans, and many other non-white citizens were and are debated, however some in the Democrat Party want to give prisoners the right to vote as well.

Democrats, even when Franklin D Roosevelt was still president, were a selfish party, and now trying to give prisoners the right to vote just to get more votes for the Presidential Election.

Prisoners should not be given the right to vote, for this reason: If they are convicted of robbing a bank, do you think that they would vote for the country’s benefit? Of course not! The Democrats as you know hate Trump, and are now trying to give Prisoners voting rights, so Trump won’t get re-elected.

Democrats hate Trump more than they love their country.

If a prisoner is convicted of murder, do you think that he should be given voting rights? No! Of course, not! Bernie Sanders seems to think so, however he’s wrong. A criminal should never get the right to vote while they are still a prisoner. Even if we live in a free country, that doesn’t give the Democrats the right to abuse that freedom just because they hate Trump. Even if a prisoner only robbed a bank, they still shouldn’t be given the right to vote.

A prison is meant for a punishment. If a parent’s kid were to kill a dog, would that parent let the kid have pizza for dinner? No! That’s why you shouldn’t give prisoners voting rights. Or if your dog were to destroy your furniture, would you give the dog a treat? No!

Giving someone the right to vote is giving them the privilege to have a say so for the election. This isn’t right for a Presidential Election or any other Election. When a Person commits a crime, they lose that right and should have to work hard to be allowed back into society. During the 1900’s Martin Luther King stood for African Americans to have the right to vote. What do you think he’d say to giving prisoners voting rights? He’d say that’s stupid.

The right to vote is not something you can just hand out – it’s a privilege and not just another thing the Democrats can hand out to get more votes. That privilege is what your grandfathers fought for in World War II. It’s what George Washington fought for in the Revolutionary War. It’s what Abraham Lincoln fought for, as president, until he was murdered.

Our freedom is something the Vietnam Veterans fought for, so we as a nation could continue to have the right to vote, to have a say so, and to have that privilege. Our Right to vote is why we celebrate the 4th of July, because we have that say so. So, let us, as a Nation, defend that right to vote we were blessed with by God, and let us celebrate everyday as our Independence Day.
