North Canton Elections: Share Your Point of View with a Blog on Patch

The election is just about a month away, and Patch wants to know what you think about the candidates, the issues and everything in between

Whether you’re a longtime Republican, a loyal Democrat, a staunch third-party supporter or a life-long independent, one thing is true: You have an opinion.

And Patch wants to hear it. 

While the blogs on North Canton Patch are open to any topic, I (Morgan) thought the month leading up to the 2012 presidential election was a good time to let locals know that politics has a platform here. Wherever you stand on the issues — and regardless of whether your passion is national politics or local issues — you can blog about it on Patch.

If you’d like to get started, it’s simple and free. Simply log in to Patch and click the start a blog link on the front page. Blogs can be long or short: it’s up to you. You can also add photos, videos or PDFs, as long as you have the copyright to them. (In other words, if you didn’t take or create it, it’s not a good idea to post it.) 

After you’ve submitted your blog post, it will appear on the site. From there, you can go ahead and send it around to your family and friends! 

Need an example? We've had some political writing on North Canton Patch. Just look at the Senate Bill 5 topic, brought to light in Ken Palosi's blog post "Confessions of a Retired Public Employee" this past year.

If you have any questions, email Local Editor Morgan Day at Morgan.Day@patch.com.

The people of the state of Ohio need to know that the republicans are a BIG part of the prescription drug abuse problem we have . Florida is one of the worst states for prescription drug abuse . The republicans in Florida fought for over 7 years against the database . First they claimed privacy issues and when that did not fly, they went on to budget issues . Under severe pressure they passed a watered down version of a database . The doctors are not required to report the controlled substance scripts they write . The drug dealers love this . They can go to 10 doctors a day and get as many scripts as they want . They pay cash and there is no paper trail . This country needs a national prescription drug database , not just state by by state . Just like we have a national drivers license database . In Florida the republicans would only pass the watered down database if the tax payers did not have to pay for it . They figure the cost to be 1 million a year to keep the database on line , so do the math . I dont believe anyone other than the republicans would disagree to pay for it. The money was never the issue anyway . The issue is that the republicans protect the profits the drug companies and doctors make . For this one reason alone I would never vote for a republican . Please vote for Obama in 2012 .
