    By the People, For the People: Our Best Shot in Decades

    What in the world is going on in this country? There was a time when you could discuss differences with people and, whether you convinced them your position was right or not, you could remain friends and go on with your life.

    ‘We the People,’ not ‘We the Democrats’

    Our Founders, in their infinite wisdom, created the Electoral College to ensure that all the states are fairly represented in elections. Now apparently the Democrats want us to believe they know better (but only because their candidate/party lost the presidential election) — shouldn’t just one or two densely populated areas speak for the whole of... by OurVoicesAR

    You’re Entitled

    submitted by an anonymous reader “You are entitled to an opinion, as long as it’s mine.” That’s the mindset of liberal and others of that type who talk about diversity, talk about your rights, talk about all the things that you are entitled to.

    Infamous Crimes in Issue 1: State Constitution vs. State Law

    Voters are hearing the words “infamous crimes” thrown around a lot lately. Why should voters care? Just what are infamous crimes, anyway? Why are infamous crimes part of Issue 1 on our ballot? “Infamous crimes” can be defined many ways, but Arkansas state law and the state Constitution, of course, govern how state courts handle... by OurVoicesAR

    Issue 3 Gives Government “Bigger Stick” for Imminent Domain

    Issue 3 is complex.

    Lynne Patton, a black female who serves in an executive position with the Trump family’s charitable organization, posted this YouTube video back in May.

    Taxpayers, Money for Schools, & Issue 3: Who Knows?

    If your neighbor could take out an unlimited loan in your name, would you want to know what they plan to do with all that money? Isn’t Issue 3 the same thing?

    You Say You’re a Patriot?

    Vote “NO” on Constitutional Amendments (Issues 1, 2, and 3)

    Looking at the 6 Constitutional amendments on the ballot, we start from a basic premise that changing the Constitution is to be avoided if at all possible.
