Talk about some very determined and dedicated US citizens. Here are a few that went above and beyond what most people do in order to vote. Alas, if only all people in our country were this passionate about our government. I have a feeling there would be a lot less corruption as well as foolish politicians. After all, several idiots were just voted out.

It has been 4 months since these two cousins vanished while riding bikes in Iowa. Authorities seek any and all help.
Iowa Cousins Missing 2 Months; Authorities Plead For Help
On the four-month anniversary of the disappearance of Iowa cousins Lyric Cook and Elizabeth Collins, residents of their hometown are gathering for a prayer vigil and authorities are pleading with the public to come forward with any new information that could help crack the case.
“Tuesday marks four months since the disappearance of 11-year-old Lyric Cook and 9-year-old Elizabeth Collins,” Rick Abben, chief deputy at the Black Hawk County Sheriff’s Office, said in a statement Thursday. “Both girls were last seen on July 13 at 12:15 p.m. riding their bicycles away from the Collins residence in Evansdale. We have information that the girls were seen approximately 12:23 p.m. on Brovan Blvd. and between 12:30 and 1:00 p.m. on Gilbert DR. in the area of Meyers Lake in Evansdale.”
A $50,000 reward for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible for the girls’ disappearance has been offered.
“Law enforcement is asking for anyone that was in the Arbutus Ave. or Gilbert Dr. and Elmer Ave. areas or anywhere in Evansdale on that day that may have seen the girls to notify us,” he said.
Last month the girls’ families received some encouragement from Elizabeth Smart, one of the most famous kidnapping survivors in the country.
“For as many bad things that we hear about that happen, for as many kidnappings and terrible stories about finding the remains of children, why can’t these girls be the exception?” Smart, who was found by police after a nine-month search in Utah a decade ago, told the Des Moines Register.
“There’s always hope,” she said.
Elizabeth Collins’ mother Heather told ABC News’ Alex Perez in July that the wait for the girls’ to resurface had been an agonizing one.
“A day doesn’t seem like a normal day,” Collins said. “It’s just like it doesn’t stop. It keeps dragging and dragging. You’re just waiting for a time to go up to your room. You’re just waiting, waiting, waiting.”
“Whoever’s out there, we’re just begging you to bring our girls back home,” she said.
In the week after the girls’ disappearance, authorities canvassed the neighborhood and drained the lake in Evansdale, a small town near Waterloo in northeast Iowa. At one point Cook’s estranged parents, Misty and Dan Morrissey, became the subject of intense police scrutiny due to their criminal pasts and their lack of cooperation. But despite an extensive search and national media attention, the girls have yet to be found.
If you have any information concerning these two young ladies, please contact The FBI & Missing Persons or call 1-800-346-5507.

“It would be a great thing if half the people screaming Obama would stop the dumb shit they be doing... like killing other black men. Treating the black woman with no respect and forgetting about their kids... Obama is a man that don’t shoot people.. he loves his wife b4 all and raises his kids... just saying..” ~Donovan King Cyrus Royall…
In the immediate aftermath of the election, many pundits began shaping a new political narrative: that these next four years will be the ones in which Barack Obama cements his presidential legacy. Several commentators and columnists have speculated on what we will remember most about Obama when his presidency ends - his election as the first African-American president in our nation's history, the Affordable Healthcare Act, the Osama Bin Laden raid, or something that is yet to come during his second term.
