Police have released a sketch of a suspect wanted in the attempted sexual assault of a woman in Elmhust.

I was just reading that Democrats have restored to their platform pro-Israel language and references to God at the convention. Now apparently they had pressure to do so and some grumbled about it. In their previous platform it was written that Jerusalem is not recognized as the undivided capital of Israel. That, in my opinion, tells me that some Democrats are anti-Israel and that is just down right wrong. And not to mention God as our creator — some must have forgotten our Pledge of Allegiance which states, “I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, ONE NATION UNDER GOD, indivisble, with liberty and justice for all.”

Let me also add what it says in the Declaration of Independence which in part states, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rughts, that among them is life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”

I therefore believe we are a nation of the people and by the people and for the people. This elecion I believe will debate whether we have more government control or less. When goverment imposes its will on the people freedom is lost. Please remember that when you vote and all that can must vote. Well at least they did wake up some and did smell the coffee.
