Our vote

This letter is in regard of “our vote.” For many years we’ve had people coming to our homes during the campaign for votes. I am 70 years old, and I’ve never let anybody tell me who to vote for because I know those who do and those who don’t.

So, here is my point of view “again” on this matter: I think the elderly and disabled folks have been easy targets on voting for a candidate they know nothing about. I’ve heard some people say, “Yes, they came to my home too, but I don’t even know who’s running for what. So, they did everything for me.” Ha! I’ll bet they did. I think this is a method of a cheating system to acquire votes. In my opinion, it should be stopped or at least looked into. But I’m sure it will continue because it’s part of the corruption going on in Beeville.

In the Feb. 22 Bee-Picayune issue, I agree with Missy Dunn about having to cut our speech short. How much can we say in two minutes? Does freedom of speech apply only to higher authority? Is this democracy?
