Hail to the Chief

Hey Kids,

There are times to argue and times to show respect.Obama And Biden Unveil Proposal To Decrease Gun Violence In U.S.

Today the President Obama is visiting Utah overnight. It is the first time that he has visited in 8 years and the first time since becoming the President.

One thing that really bothers me is the protesters that must follow and harass the President. In my opinion, many of them disrespect the office.

Shouting at an elected official or holding signs does not really affect policy. Shouting and offensive signs are disrespectful. Organized efforts, educated civilized dialogue, and responsible voting affects policy and shows respect to the process of democracy.

I do not endorse or protest the President’s policies today. I’m honored that our state will host our President tonight. I welcome the President of the United States of America to Salt Lake City. I hope that he returns again.

And I’ll extend this welcome to any President who decides to come in the future as well.

Respect the office; protest with your votes.

 

Day 38
