Lettter:New Year's resolutions for 2018
To the Editor:
1: Stop blaming Trump for everything. Blame the voters who made him president.
2: Never waste a vote by voting against your own interests. Never vote D/R. There are always better options on the ballot. Vote Socialist, Green, Libertarian, Independent....
3: Ask yourself: "What would Nader do?"
4: Protect all disenfranchised groups — the elderly, disabled, poor, homeless, immigrants....
5: Reform programs, such as The Involuntary Court Appointed Guardianship Program which puts the lives and property of the elderly and others at risk. Remember the Ronald Comeau case in Bennington.
6: Allow patients and doctors to opt-out of the digital health care record system. It has compromised the patient/doctor relationship and also put privacy at high risk.
7: Cut the Pentagon budget by 99 percent. De-authorize the Black Budget which is a violation of Article 1, Section 9 of the United States Constitution.
8: The U.S. Military is the greatest threat to the environment. Changing all the light bulbs on the planet won't help. Think about how much fuel is used by the F-35 per hour.
9: Most schools glorify war and romanticize the troops. Allow anti-war families a choice in schools for their children. This can be accomplished with a voucher system.
10: End the current trend of "gender shaming" men. Every person is unique and deserving of respect.
