BENJAMIN FRANKLIN'S WARNING
 
thatas soon as people learn they can vote themselvesmoney from the treasury, it will signal the end of our republic.This warning resonates again and again as wewatch our freedoms dissipate under the currentadministration and its ruthless treatment of ourethical framework, and our laws. People oftenwonder, sometime piously, how it is that tyrannyoccurs.We like to think the populations victimized weresomehow less savvy, more gullible, or asleep atthe wheel. We think ourselves better somehow,and that it could never happen here. Everygeneration that has fallen to tyranny has believedthe same comforting fable. They only learn thatthey, too, were susceptible to tyranny when it istoo late.

Barack Obama wins election for second term as president
President Barack Obama handily defeated Gov. Mitt Romney and won himself a second term on Tuesdayafter a bitter and historically expensive race that was primarily fought in just a handful of battlegroundstates. Obama beat Romney after nabbing almost every one of the 12 crucial battleground states.ack Obama wins election for second term as presidentIn a sweeping victory speech early Wednesday morning, Obama thanked every American who voted, andvowed to work with leaders from both parties to tackle the country's challenges."Our economy is recovering, a decade of war is ending, a long campaign is now over," he told a crowd of cheering supporters in Chicago. "And whether I earned your vote or not, I have listened to you, I havelearned from you and you have made me a better president." Obama added he has "never been morehopeful about America. ... We're not as divided as our politics suggest. We remain more than a collectionof blue states and red states."Romney conceded in Boston in a speech around 1 a.m. ET. "Like so many of you, Paul [Ryan] and I haveleft everything on the field. We have given our all to this campaign," Romney said. "I so wish that I hadbeen able to fulfill your hopes to lead your country in another direction. But the nation chose anotherleader." Romney congratulated the president and his campaign on their victory.
$6 billion later, Americans voted for the status quo.
Republicans will keep the House. Democrats will keep the Senate. Obama will keep the White House.The Obama campaign ran a very good campaign. The Republicans did not. There was no fraud. There wasno stealing the election. There was just a really good ground game from Barack Obama.There will be a lot of blame to go around, but, if Republicans are honest, they
’ 
ll have to concede that theRomney campaign ran a bad campaign and only almost won because the President had a bad debate.Romney could not even win his home state, his second home state, or his vacation home state.Whether you can bring yourself to say it or not, like it or not, Barack Obama, today, is your President. As for you conservatives who are convinced today that suddenly we are a socialist nation, sober up andpay attention: the next two years are going to be some of the most impactful and fun years in theconservative movement. Republicans who, overnight, were screaming about the country headed towardsocialism are, if we are honest, not yet deprogrammed from defending Mitt Romney. The Romneycampaign, truth be told, has been pathetic at defining a real, right-of-center alternative to Barack Obama.

With Your Help, the Henry County Police DepartmentWants to Recreate the Past
The current Henry County Police Department was formed in 1991 as a response toexplosive population growth that only recently abated with the economic downshift of the past few years. Although growth has slowed, interest in the origins of policing inthe county have increased to such a level that the police department has decided toset out on a journey of self-discovery. With the help of citizens, the Henry County Police Department wantsto recreate the past.Not to be confused with the Henry County Sheriff, who has done an excellent job of researching anddocumenting the history of that elected office in Henry County (
C
), the Henry County PoliceDepartment is looking for help in preparing a timeline of its history prior to 1991. Early badges and patchesfrom retired officers and families have surfaced that hint at an existence in the 1960s and prior to mid-century. Artifacts and anecdotal evidence suggest that the county police department may have existed insome embodiment as early as the 1940s or before. However, information is sparse and research throughthe county
’ 
s own documents is limited to 1991 and later.The Henry County Police Department is requesting the assistance of local residents, many of whom havelived here for a lifetime, who have personal ties to, or relics from, a bygone era that could find a showcasein this endeavor. Photographs, agency public information releases, print newspaper articles, names, datesand photos of the chiefs of Police, badges, patches, uniforms, training certificates, commendations and thelike, earned by early department members are all being sought by the Department. The goal is toformulate a timeline of official police enforcement in Henry County, outside of the Sheriff and municipalagencies.In addition to tangible records, the Department seeks personal or civic stories prior to 1991 involving anycommand staff, patrolmen, detectives, and other personnel, precincts, incidents, cases, trials, promotions,liaisons, meetings, and contracts, and any activities of the many who served our county by wearing theuniform of the Henry County Police Department under that name, or any other. Coupled with the artifactsof the era(s), these oral histories can help illustrate a compelling cross-section of the historical and socialfabric of Henry County through the guise of the Henry County Police Department.If you are able to assist the Department in this project and/or would like more information, please contacteither Major Mark Amerman at
