       I will vote Yes on these amendments because I want my representative to have these activities in common with me: accountable to our common, local community, under the auspices of the local election board, drinking the same water, owning property in our common county, raising a family and living in the same community, educating their kids or/and grandkids in the same schools, or kids working in the same local industries.  I want his local office in a familiar place and easy to drive to.
        By the same token I want him to be familiar with the local party politics and politicians who also live, own property and educate their kids in the same community.  And who are knowledgeable of the local industries, not those that are different, competing and 100+ miles away.  I want him to be an expert on 
our common county area, paying similar taxes and subject to the same court jurisdictions.
        I want a representative who understands the legacy and consequences of his actions and his votes in public service because they will affect his own flesh and blood for generations.
        I want a representative that knows How To Vote [file] The Principles of Republicracy, irrespective of party, that will stand against the Dinos, Iinos and Rinos whose victimizing policy platforms are selfish, immoral, liberal, socialist democracy that moves toward mobacracy, tyranny and chaos.
        This is what I think is important about redistricting; and that now is the time to do it.

     "The role of the religious representative is relentlessly trying to keep fools from destroying [their own family] by erecting life preserving [moral] barriers based on God's wisdom principles."   R. Klenk Sr.
     "Every Executive Order, Judicial Decree or Law is a line drawn in the sand.  On one side is Right on the other side is Wrong.  This is the DEFINITION of morality.  It follows that the Character of those who draw the lines in the sand is EXTREMELY IMPORTANT !"   R. Klenk Sr.

"Strong local self-government preserves human freedom."
