Speak Out

The Marshall Democrat-News invites readers to share their views and questions on any issue. Open discussions are often useful and enlightening. Criticism is acceptable as an important part of public conversations, but we expect everyone to treat others with respect. Experience suggests it is best not to post comments while angry. We reserve the right to delete comments that we think include personal attacks, are disrespectful, threatening, obscene or in other ways objectionable. Anyone who repeatedly violates this policy will be banned from participating in our forums.

Yeah, I thought Ted said that God told him he was going to be President.

Well I guess I won't be voting for president this time. Just don't feel comfortable with my normal vote for the lesser of two evils approach. Kinda like being given the choice of eating a cow pattie or brushing your teeth with a toothbrush someone wiped their *** with...the both leave a taste of s#*t in your mouth
