  • ‘Real Hope Comes from Change’

    Dear Editor:
    There is one light in all the political darkness. We are being forced to look for long-term answers to America’s future by searching for truth amid all the spin that the two parties throw at us. There are both Republican and Democrat politicians who want to continue out of control spending as a matter of attaining power and wealth for themselves. But very few politicians who want to make sacrifices and risk their power and wealth.

  • ‘The Reason for the Season’

    Dear Editor:
    I have a problem with some churches today who proclaim to be of Christ and serve Christ.
    Why, you ask? Lets look just a minute at a couple of things:
    First, the churches of today uphold the Sabbath, the Lord’s day, as Sunday, but when Christmas falls on a Sunday, the churches seem to forget all of a sudden and want to shut down services. They preach over and over “Jesus is the reason for the season” and then they close the doors. Without Christ in Christmas you wouldn’t have nothing but mas.

  • Helping the Disabled to Vote

    Dear Editor:
    People with disabilities have the right, like other registered voters, to cast their ballots at polling places that are accessible to them. This includes, but is not limited to, people physically accessing their polling places in order to vote independently and privately.

  • Tired of ‘Politics as Usual’

    Dear Editor:
    I am tired of them trashing their opponents instead of offering ideas to solve our problems and bring us together.

  • Clinton’s reaction to Gaddafi death was chilling

    Dear Editor:
    The gleeful laughter of Hillary Clinton after Gaddafi’s mutilation, saying “We came, we saw, he died” is chilling, as is her offer of U.S. aid to debt-free Libya to rebuild a country that NATO demolished, killing an estimated 30,000 people and wounding 50,000 by April alone – launching 9,600 air strikes to remove their leader.
