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.

I never liked seeing when other users would send multiple comments in a row, I even mentioned how annoying it was--and to be polite, to wait for a response.

Don't just throw things out there--make your case and maybe then people would take the links seriously. Send links to credible and educated writers and not the first link that pops up from "G00gling" 'racist and president 0range Julius'

What is the Point of all this? Copy and paste links again...

What are you going for here? I'm a little confused. My point on all this was to educate yourself, think for yourself and to vote local--rather than the large picture.

For my comments on voters tendencies is my own thought based on other sociologists work...

It spoke for itself, that people vote either on personality, ideology, or a new one--emotionally. Who they feel can do the most damage or make the most impact in the moment they have the sharpie in their hand while in the 'booth"

So, without copy and paste, theres a good argument.

Here's a book reading list for you "Mr J" and others, check out William Domhoff, "who rules America";"Bowling Alone", Robert Putnam; "The Courage of their Convictions", Peter Irons

This is just my opinion, don't get mad. No one forced you to read my comments or this "Speak Out"
