    Register to vote and voting

    in Legal

    Register to vote and voting. Ways a person becomes a United States citizen (USC)

    Four ways to be a USC: Birth in the US, Birth abroad, Derivative citizenship, and Naturalization.

    Naturalization may draw the most complication/litigation. Generally, be a lawful permanent resident for five years; tree year and other exceptions. Be a person good moral character.  Potential waivers: fee waiver, medical waiver, 20/50 rule, and 15/55 rule.   

    To vote in the federal elections, a person has to be a USC and has to be age 18.

    Some states require you to register before Election Day, so that you can vote on Election Day.

    Other states, like Minnesota, allow you to register on Election Day and also vote on Election Day.

    I believe that some litigants are trying to eliminate this same day registration and voting on Election Day in Minnesota. 

    Registering to vote and voting is a free process. Registering to vote and voting is a constitutional right that each United States citizen has.

    The #15Amendment gave African American men the right to vote.

    The #19Amendment gave women the right to vote.

    A violation of either amendment could also trigger violation of the #FifthAmendment and #FourteenthAmendment .

  • Voting is the best way to Look Out for your community

    in Elections

    By Tricia Bailey, OurTown National News Editor,

    So far from the truth, is that your vote does not count, so why vote?

    And for the most part the voting systems make you feel more like a bother when you try to go vote. Jobs, traffic, taking children to school, are great excuses not to vote. 

    Whatever your excuse you can think of should be enough for about half the population of voters, not to vote. Below is a reson for you to reconsider the reason to vote.

    Why vote?

    Vote because every election matters. Vote because the choices you will make matter. Vote because elections aren't simply about your representatives in Washington or who is president. 

    Who you choose this November to lead your local and state governments -- whether as your governor, mayor, city council member, or your state senator ---will have a serious impact on the life of your community. 

    When we vote for our state and local officials, we make choices that will have very direct and concrete effects on our daily lives.

    Voting matters. When voters don't turn out to choose their local and state governments, they receive a government that doesn't represent them. 

    "Are we becoming a country out fat people wearing workout clothes? Are we accepting the fact that we can be separated divided and conquered by others? Are we being brainwashed about ,'The Power Of Your Vote?", asked The Look Out Lady, at a huge crowd this past weekend.

    She adds, " I need other community leaders to become a Look Out Lady, A Look Out Man, A Look Out Girl, and and a Look Out Boy. By all means the first and most powerful way to protect those around you, is to VOTE. Moreover, the most important reason, is to vote for those too young or old to VOTE.

    Vote, November, 3, 2015!

    United States citizenship & Voting

    in Legal

    There are four ways to become a United States citizen (USC): 1) Birth in the US, 2) Birth Abroad, 3) Derivative Citizenship, and Naturalization. Generally, to naturalize, one has to be a green card holder/lawful permanent resident for five years. Exceptions, if your green card was obtained through marriage to a USC, it is three years.  If your spouse is a USC, in the US military and stationed abroad, it is much less than five years when one can apply for USC.  If your USC spouse is a stationed abroad, and working for a US company that is providing trade, commerce, and other significant benefits to the US, that five year requirement is much reduced. If you are 50 or older and have your green card for more than 20 years, you can take the test in your native language and you are exempt from the reading and writing portion of the test. If you are 55 or older and have your green card for 15 years or more, you can take the test in your native language and you are exempt from the reading and writing portions of the test. If you have a medical condition and a doctor sign off on Form N-648, you may get exempted for taking the entire test. You will still have to show that you are a person of good moral character, you  do not have major crimes, and you do not owe local, state, and/or federal taxes.

    It is my opinion that each person who is a USC, 18 or older, and you do not have restricted liberties should vote. In Minnesota, one can register to vote and vote on Election Day. In Minnesota, one can register to vote Online, at the DMV, and at various other outlets.

    Voting is Not about Lying Politicians

    in Politics Progressive

    Voting is not about lying politicians. Voting determines the amount of money that comes into communities. Voting determines who gets to make decisions about how the money is spent that comes into communities. Voting is about better schools and keeping schools in your immediate area, available for easy access by the students and parents, so that a day at school is not a 50 miles daily round trip. The future of America is in the hands of citizens. Voting citizens hold the cards.  If citizens who vote stand with corrupt politicians and ceos, all US workers lose. If citizens who vote stand with other citizens who depend on paychecks, and if citizens who don't vote, begin to vote, all people who depend on paychecks begins to see improvement in home, community, and across the country. We will come to appreciate our efforts, because we will begin to see improvement almost immediately. And the biggest plus is if improvement does not come, we get to exercise our right to term limits by voting out the traitors and finding people who want a better society for all.
