Recently, someone said, "I'm glad Dennis doesn't have any yard signs out."

That's what democracy is all about. In Russia, North Korea and China, you can be put in jail, executed or put in cruel labor camps for the rest of your life if you voice your opinion and the leadership doesn't like it.

Our president congratulated Putin on his win and told the Chinese leader that decided he would be the leader of China for the rest of his life that it was a good thing and said the North Korea leader was a great leader. This president has said the press and journalists are our enemies. This president treats our allies with disrespect and acts like Russia, China and North Korea are okay.

I am happy that I have can have an opinion and that you can, too − that's what democracy is all about. I am happy that we have the right to vote, and I hope we all get out to vote. This president scares me.
