Citizens need to start thinking for themselves

Given all the many letters and opinion essays about Erie County Sheriff Timothy Howard and his unwillingness to compromise constitutionally granted rights with things such as the NY SAFE Act, I come to this conclusion: Rather than allowing the long-tenured, well-connected, judicial and/or political hacks to determine what is in your best interests, would it hurt so much for people to start thinking for themselves?

What Howard is doing is showing us what it is to think for oneself.

Try thinking for yourself; it just might amaze you.
