“NO” on the Charter Changes (opinion)

 What a “coincidence” that both Jackson and Josephine county voters face a May vote on sweeping charter changes that fundamentally transform county governments under the false claims of promoting non-partisanship and “good government”. Both schemes are promoted by Democrats and failed Democrat county commission candidates who can’t get elected without “Stacking the Court” and changing the rules.

it’s a naked power grab about getting more Democrats into the county commissions because they have been unsuccessful at winning countywide votes due to radical Democrat policies.

Behind both “Jackson County for All” (for all Democrats) and the Jo County’s sweeping repeal and replace the charter Measure 17-116, is an incredible amount of political sand being thrown in the air to keep you from seeing the true motivations of its supporters. It’s not about more democracy or more transparency or saving money…It’s about breaking the counties by electing Democrats. Don’t overthink the measures, vote NO.

 7:10 Dr. Carole Lieberman, M.D., M.P.H. (Masters in Public Health), known worldwide as “America’s Psychiatrist”.

A new study revealed that people with so-called “woke” ideologies tended to be more unhappy, anxious, and depressed compared to others. The study – published in the Scandinavian Journal of Psychology last week – found that individuals with attitudes geared toward critical social justice were less satisfied with their lives. The first study examined 848 adult participants – 382 staff members and 266 students of the University of Turku in southwestern Finland as well as 64 staff and students from other Finnish universities, two from foreign universities, and 134 not associated with a university. A second study included 5,030 Finnish citizens aged 15–84.
