Now I don't know Dewey but I do know that I have seen Crime rise through the roof the last few years and it continues to escalate with more violence.

Man, I just don't know. It's so hard to know who to vote against, the evil we know or the evil we know. Hey, remember the good old days when there were people to vote FOR, instead of against?
