Make ATVs Street Legal in Clinton County, IA

For those of you who do not know, there are 16 counties in Iowa, including Jackson, that Allow ATVs to ride on designated public roadways.  We are trying to get Clinton county to adopt a similar ordinance to allow ATVs to be ridden on designated public roadways as well. For this to happen, we are going to need as many citizens as possible to voice their support. I feel that ATV's should be allowed on specified public roadways because they are capable vehicles and when equipped and used properly, many could argue that ATVs are safer to ride than motorcycles due to increased stability, not to mention that they are safer for both the rider and other motorists than bicycles, as ATVs are better capable of keeping up with traffic speeds and are much more visible.   Other states and countries have realized this, and have adapted laws to allow them to be used on public roads. Approving an ordinance to allow ATVs will do two things: 1) It will allow another mode of fuel/cost efficient transportation and 2) It will provide the county more revenue from sales, registration, and tourism. A number of factory modifications have been added to make ATVs more compliant with DMV standards. These include: Headlights (low and high beams) Taillights Break lights Reflectors   Mirrors and radial (street) tires are easily added and hand signals can be used in place of turn signals.   Besides being more affordable forms of transportation, street legal ATVs use less gas than a typical mid-size car. In today’s uncertain economy and the constant threat of oil shortages, implementing policies to make ATVs street legal could benefit society on a larger scale.

Class Action Lawsuit against Donald J Trump for Defamation of Hillary Clinton

Donald Trump was recently found by the Washington Post to be the biggest liar in Politics of 2016 with "59 Four-Pinocchio ratings".  He made numerous false statements about Hillary Clinton that were proven to have influenced many voters. His false statements were clearly malicious in intent, and were designed to harm Secretary Clinton's reputation. While many have resigned themselves to accepting that "truth" no longer matters, this is not an acceptable option in our great Democracy. We have laws that address this situation. In fact, unless action is taken, Trump has laid out a "road map for dishonesty" for all future candidates to follow in order to succeed. A mere sample of the false and defamatory statements made by Donald Trump about Secretary Clinton include: She has a serious chronic illness  She is sleeping all the time She founded ISIS "literally" with President Obama Trump blamed the tax code that allowed him to not pay millions in taxes on her She wants to eliminate the second amendment She started the birther movement  She will be indicted (after Comey's letter to Congress) Her Emails (in relation to Anthony Wiener's computer) are worse than Watergate The many voters who made campaign contributions to Hillary's campaign have been damaged. The Clinton Campaign, the Democratic Party and other Pro-Clinton organizations spent over $1.2 Billion on a campaign that was likely lost as a result of Trump's defamatory statements.  Please vote so that Hillary Clinton, the DNC, and class action attorneys will sue Donald Trump for the $1.2 Billion and send a clear message to political candidates that the "Truth" does matter.
