My 2 Cents
It is no secret that the majority of Guahan would consider themselves Democrats in the political sense.
This is my belief on why:
Guam has been governed since 1898, first by Henry Glass followed (i think) 62 others. In the beginning, the governor was more of a dictator, directing policy, rules, regulations and laws mostly passed down from the U.S. Navy.
So, if you think about it, 114 years ago is when the people of Guam began getting accustomed to being told what to do and how to do it. The Democrat way is based on community and social responsibility or, as I refer to it, the way of the Sheep.
Don’t get me wrong, Democrats are not bad at all. I am just a believer of individualism. If I absolutely HAD to choose a political stance, it would be neither Dem. or Rep., I would choose Libertarian; Maximum Freedom. Minimum Government.
I believe it is the responsibility of the individual to make the correct choices. I do not need the government to tell me what clothes to wear to school or if I am allowed to use a cell phone when driving.
I am fully capable of making my own decisions and actually deciding that only an idiot would risk the safety of him/herself and others by texting and driving. We are not a bunch of sheep that need “tending”, we are People who have the capability to thrive if we experienced true freedom.
