You owe it to research all of the candidates' positions and their past and then decide based on that who you are for rather then who you are against. I pray that you look to your family first then your local community for answers to problems within your life since looking to the government to be your saver through tax payer supported programs has hurt our families and even society.
Stop voting for your pocket book, for your security and start voting for your rights, your liberty. Again I must stress that you stop voting for the lesser of two evils and start voting for every politician that you believe is for liberty.

Support Equal Parenting Measures in Legislature
It is time for Michigan to recognize and for citizens to demand there be a fundamental right to parent your children within the state's constitution and family law. To this end, I implore everyone to actively support both the ``parental rights'' resolution and House Bill 4564, the ``equal parenting bill.''
Children are a part of the family and they have the right to the love of both of their parents and their extended family, too. Allowing the state, without due process of law through the courts and government child welfare bureaucracies, to interrupt the child-parent relationship has destroyed many childhoods and caused untold damage to our society.
Parents should have the right to decide how their children are educated and medicated as long as there is no clear evidence that these choices will seriously harm their children. Demonstrating to children that the family is important by making sure that both parents and the entire family are respected will give children the courage to have a family of their own.
In divorce cases, the state is allowed, through the supposed best interest of the child criteria, to pressure most fathers to relinquish custody to the mother or be denied custody in court because they want to create winners and losers instead of promoting joint custody.
HB 4564 and Resolution NN will help ensure that children will have the stability and love of both of their fit, willing and able parents.
