Editor, Manteca Bulletin,
Voting is your way of saying “we the people.” Your vote is telling politicians that this is what we want and it is law — or is it?
Many years ago we the people of California voted for the death penalty yet there are over 700 murderers on death row.
I have heard every excuse there is for not getting what you voted for.
We also voted for marriage to be between a man and a woman but a panel of unelected judges said we the people don’t have the right to decide that.
We the people voted to legalize marijuana but the Manteca City Council unanimously made it illegal to grow marijuana or allow medical marijuana stores in Manteca.
So get out there and vote. It’s still the best way to express your rights. As a country that is based on “we the people.” Remember who took away your rights.
