Disappointed in Grayson's voting results

June 19, 2013 — The editor:

    This letter is regarding the indecision that led to the passing of the ordinance for the Grayson area to be wet.

    Where were the 67 percent of registered voters? Not at the polls, obviously. I, for one, take my responsibility and privilege to vote very seriously. The 67 percent are not even counting the people who are not registered.

    People, we could have stopped this poison from coming in our door, if the ones who were against alcohol and the sad effects from it would just have showed up and voted against it.

    Even though a lot of us could not vote in this farce of an election, we still have to shop in Grayson.

    Unless, of course, we go miles out of our way to buy gas and groceries. And that would just defeat the purpose of having alcohol sales in Grayson, because we would be spending our money somewhere else.

    When I heard about how few of the good people of Grayson voted at all (either for or against), I thought about what the Book of Revelation says about being lukewarm. (Rev. 3:16: So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spew thee out of my mouth.)

    So, in other words, they made the Lord sick. You know, when we have the power to stop something wrong and we don’t, we will be held accountable.

    Even if we don’t look at the religious aspect, any reasonable person can see what alcohol does to people.

    It causes sickness and increases violent and promiscuous behavior, just to name a few effects.

    Is that what we REALLY want in our door? Another thing, if something is easily available, people will be more apt to partake of it more often.

    Maybe I am beating a dead horse, but at least whoever reads this knows where I stand. Thank you.

    Sandra Gollihue
