Linda Waggener: Voting yes to end duplicity, buy legal-local
Normally I never tell anyone how I'm voting. This historic wet/dry election issue, however, makes it just seem the right thing to do.
By Linda Waggener
My intention is to go to the polls and vote yes Tuesday March 22, 2016.
After reading every letter and comment from people I respect on both sides of the issue, I favor legalizing the sale of alcoholic beverages in Adair County because our present deceptive, look-the-other-way practice of bootlegging just does not seem the right thing to continue doing.
Because I disagree with the duplicity of allowing open illegal bootlegging in a dry county, I have not "driven through (wink/wink, nod/nod) and broken the law" as some have confessed. I prefer to buy local, but it has to be legal-local.
Because bootlegging businesses thrive in Adair County, the message from the majority seems perfectly clear -- that a nearby source of alcohol is needed, wanted and supported.
Caring very deeply about that question on the yard signs, "What Would Jesus Do" (WWJD), I've searched my heart as I've read and thought how to vote. The still voice inside tells me that if our Creator didn't design us to have free will, we would not have a choice. I think if each person follows their heart in this election the outcome will be right, whichever side wins.
