Important election

Oct. 6 is the latest one can register to vote in the November election.

Oct. 6 is the latest one can register to vote in the November election.

It is very important to vote because this election will decide if we live under the extremist agenda or we elect sensible candidates.

The choices are simple. If women wish to have some old men decide what women can do for birth control and other health issues, then do not vote.

If women decide it is okay that they not be paid the same as men working at the same job, then do not vote.

If workers decide that minimum wage is a good salary and no retirement or health benefits are needed, then do not vote.

If people think it is OK to cut food stamps, Medicare, Social Security and Medicaid, which a lot of our elderly people must have to survive, then be ready to bring your elderly relatives home with you as the nursing homes no longer can allow Medicaid cuts, then do not vote.

If you think you want none of the above, you better vote!
