- I Have the Power to Withhold Mom’s Medical Treatment
Can I complete my mother’s mail-in ballot, voting as her proxy? While the answer may seem obvious, I wasn’t sure if it was legal or not. I know how she would vote in most cases. For those candidates and issues in doubt, I would not cast a vote.
It seems perverse that I have the legal power to determine what medical procedures my mother gets or does not get, what services she accesses, and how she spends her money (a moot point now that she is on Medicaid), but I can’t legally cast a vote on her behalf for an initiative that will directly impact her life.
- Winter's End
I am ready for spring. This has been a pretty mild winter for us, but I am tired of brown grass, bare trees, and piles of dirty snow hiding under the pine trees.
