Iowa voters disrespected

Editors Note: The views and opinions expressed in this editorial are not necessarily the views or opinions of Osky News

An Iowa Supreme Court judge who was voted out last fall had some bad things to say about Iowans recently.

Former Justice Michael Streit said Iowans cannot be expected to do what is right. Quoting from the rock song American Idiot, he called voters “rednecks who listen to the propaganda and sing the paranoia”.

Do you agree with the judge that Iowans are idiots who can’t be trusted with the vote?

Maybe he should listen to Otis Redding’s greatest hits: “Respect is what I want, respect is what I need”.
