Constitutionally Speaking

AMENDMENT XVI
The Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes on incomes, from whatever source derived, without apportionment among the several States, and without regard to any census or enumeration.

AMENDMENT XVII
The Senate of the United States shall be composed of two Senators from each State, elected by the people thereof, for six years; and each Senator shall have one vote. The electors in each State shall have the qualifications requisite for electors of the most numerous branch of the State legislatures

AMENDMENT XIX
The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex

AMENDMENT XXIV
The right of citizens of the United States to vote in any primary or other election for President or Vice President, for electors for President or Vice President, or for Senator or Representative in Congress, shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or any State by reason of failure to pay any poll tax or other tax.

We pay taxes in order to receive public services. Those public services should be the same for all tax paying citizens. Public education should mirror private and charter schools if they are successful, not be challenged by them.

The people have the power and the duty to elect those individuals who speak with their voice. Knowing and understanding how our elected officials vote on the issues that are important to us as a society is our responsibility. It then becomes our duty to hold those empowered to speak with the voice of the people accountable for their vote and actions.

Everyone has the right to vote, according to the Constitution.

Our vote is only as important as our knowledge and understanding of the issues.

The laws of a fair and just system of government are not passed to control the citizenry but to protect the rights of citizens.

Our children deserve to live in a free and just America.

All children deserve an excellent education.
