Vote Row B all the way across

The upcoming election this year is most likely the most critical in history. It is the difference between democracy and socialism, both of which are defined here by Webster:

Democracy is:

1. Government by the people especially: Rule of the majority.

2. A government in which the supreme power is vested in the people and exercised by them directly or indirectly through a system of representation usually involving periodically held free elections.

Socialism is:

1: Any of various economic and political theories advocating collective or governmental ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods.

2: A system of society or group living in which there is no private property.

We currently live in a democracy and have since the beginning of this country as the United States.

If Biden-Harris are elected, we are facing socialism throughout the country very soon. All of the rights guaranteed by the Constitution and the Bill of Rights can be taken from us — freedom of speech, religion, assembly, and gun ownership to name a few. Our taxes will be increased, it has already been assured in their political ads, and the defunding of the police will occur.

In order to prevent this dramatic change in/to our country and our individual lives, we must reelect President Trump. In addition, in Fulton County we must re-elect Congresswoman Stefanik, Senator Tedisco, Assemblyman Smullen, and District Attorney Chad Brown. Additionally, we must elect Attorney Michael Smrtic to be Fulton County Judge and Surrogate.

Congresswoman Stefanik has worked diligently to improve the lives of veterans, business owners, and farmers throughout the North Country; Senator Tedisco and Assemblyman Smullen strive daily to ensure all citizens of New York are represented not just those living in the New York City area and both, along with Congresswoman Stefanik, have called for an investigation of the nursing home deaths of thousands of elderly New Yorkers. District Attorney Brown has been articulate and outspoken against the governor’s bail reform. Attorney Smrtic will be a fair and unbiased judge when he is elected to the position.

As you vote, either by Absentee Ballot or in person, please Vote Row B all the way across to ensure we may continue to live in a democracy.
