Hope Shows in Mountain View, MOCan American wake up and undo some of the damage done to their country and the world?
From one of our readers,
I was in city hall paying my utility bill. A little old man came in and announced “I want to change my voter registration” The clerk, thinking he must have moved, took out a change of residence form and started to fill it out by asking him questions. He answered a few and then figured out what she was doing. “No! I haven’t moved!!! I just want to change my voter registration” She said she didn’t understand. He responded, and this is a vertabum quote: “I want to have every single reference to me as a Republican Party member erased. I want to have NOTHING on record that identifies me as a Republican! I want to do it today and I want to know this has been done on all records everywhere…..everywhere you send your records. I want to see it now” She explained to him that she didn’t have anyone designated as a republican or democrat. He said “Well, when I registered to vote you ASKED me what I was! I moved here three years ago and you asked me. So you did something with that information and I want it fixed. You can designate me as an Independent. You can even call me a Damned Democrat. I don’t care. I just want to have you change any reference to me as a Republican! And I want it done now!!!” They argued for a while. I was going to ask this man what had changed his mind but he didn’t look to me like anyone who couuld be messed with today so I left him alone. He finally got something near what he was wanting. And he left.
I think it is the Social Security thing.
So that’s the story from Mountain View Missouri, deep in the right wing Christian fundamentalist Ozarks. If things can change here, they can change anywhere.
