Your Views: Election sends US away from freedom, closer to socialism

I have been grieving since the morning of Nov. 7. It is not because of the re-election of President Barack Obama. His election to another term of office is really insignificant in the big picture. His only legacy will be leaving the nation more racially divided than when he took office.

Your Views: Black Friday is out of hand, misses the true meaning of Christmas

When will it stop? Black Friday is carried into Saturday and maybe Sunday, too.

Your Views: Gainesville Parks and Recreation employees worthy of honor

Congratulations to Melvin Cooper and the staff of Gainesville Parks and Recreation for being named agency of the year. Thank you for the hours of recreation that many generations have enjoyed.

Your Views: Traffic backing up at trash sites

Every year about this time (holidays), the trash drop-off sites are busy. Often, vehicles are backed up, six or eight, waiting.

Your Views: Don’t let pundits paint a negative image of president

Another election has come and gone. The president is about to finish his first term in office and start his second. I woke up the day after the election, and imagine my surprise when the world had not come to an end.

Your Views: Some side with the rich though others have sacrificed so much

I cannot understand why anyone would vote for the Republican Party nominees because they trust in their money, and they don't care for people who don't have money. They clearly stated that 47 percent of the population was not profitable or any good. For America, is this the word of God or Christ Jesus? No.

Your Views: Nation is worse off for repeat of ’08 mistake

There is no way to know who reads the opinion submittals that The Times prints or how they think and what their level of knowledge is. The contributors to this section are "flying blind" but hope our efforts are well-received and possibly beneficial. Perhaps it may be appropriate to provide a very brief resume for the readers.

Your Views: Help with power bills is needed for many during hard times

It's a shame that people in our own town need help with different things, such as electric bills, medical bills and a lot more things. Sure, they offer help, but when they really need it, they're told no more funds are available.

Your Views: We all should be willing to speak up for what we believe

On the morning of Nov. 15, my husband called me on his way to work as he always does. That morning he had passed something he had never seen. At the intersection of U.S. 129 and Jesse Jewell Parkway was a man preaching, Bible in hand with a headset connected to a speaker.

Your Views: Weakened family, morality will lead to society’s downfall

Weaken the family unit and society will collapse. Over half of marriages end in divorce. One out of three pregnancies is aborted. Prescription drug facilities are flushing babies into sewers.

Your Views: Foreign markets are crucial, yet also undesirable

Bruce Vandiver's view of how the U.S. economy works (Your Views, Wednesday) is too limited. We are involved all over the world because we need foreign markets in which to sell our goods. In spring 2011, the head of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce was on cable news saying that we need to export 95 percent of what we produce in this country in order to maintain our economy.

Your Views: Denying climate change burdens future generations

Kudos go to The Times' Viewpoint section on Sunday for at least asking whether global climate change should have been an election issue. Brickbats go to Amy Ridenour for dismissing the need to even discuss that vital issue, particularly in the wake of unprecedented wildfires and Hurricane Sandy.

Your Views: Story on 1936 tornado tragedy was disrespectful to its victims

Our family is very pleased that a historical marker will be placed in Gainesville to honor the ladies who worked and so bravely gave their lives in the tragic Cooper Pants Factory fire during the 1936 tornado.

Your Views: Focus on social issues won’t fix economic woes

Like many Americans who wanted change in 2008, I and many others wanted change in 2012. It is obvious now that we will not receive that change.

Your Views: Ga. lawmakers overdue to fix roads funding

I am very pleased to see state Sen. Steve Gooch is trying to solve our problem with road funding in Georgia. This should have been addressed years ago but has been allowed to continue to a point of emergency.

Your Views: Madison County’s decision was based on avoiding a losing battle

Perhaps guts had nothing to do with the decision the school board in Madison County made concerning the religious monument on school grounds. Maybe its members chose to not set up their county for a budget-busting legal case that could bankrupt them.

Your Views: Iraq’s problems were caused by Bush's policies, not Obama's

Response to Darrell Newton's letter Friday: Certainly, everyone has the right to say what he thinks, but they really should have the facts before doing so.

Your Views: Series on foster child care opened eyes to a serious issue

On more than one occasion, I have taken pen to paper to offer my criticism of your newspaper. It is expected that we subscribers will do that. When a newspaper does something that I feel is commendable, I will also offer my praise as well as extending my subscription another quarter.

Your Views: Madison County school board caves to atheists

Here we go again, folks, just another example of no guts: The school board in Madison County caved to an atheist group over a monument on school grounds that had Bible verses and quotes on it that was paid for by private donations.

Your Views: Vote could make reckless drivers share the cost of spinal injuries

Tens of thousands of Georgians live with life-long disabilities due to brain and spinal cord injury. As medical technology, safety and trauma care have improved, more people survive traumatic injury, but many then face a lifetime of physical, behavioral and cognitive impairments requiring ongoing support services.

Your Views: There’s no good reason for vote for any Democrat in fall election

When you add it all up, the steady stream of lies from the White House, the Democratic party and its supporters, the liberal left media, there is only one answer: There is NO Democratic candidate worthy of even a single vote. In fact, I don't see how a Democrat could vote for himself or herself.

Your Views: Obama’s actions have cost us peace, cost him respect

President Barack Obama withdrew all of our troops both in Iraq and Afghanistan against the recommendation of his own military, the CIA and his own secretary of defense and secretary of State.

Your Views: Germany’s offer aims to reverse US brain drain

Why is Germany offering tuition-free college educations to Americans (and others)? What we're seeing here is an attempt to reverse the brain drain.

Your Views: TV show’s view of Appalachian South is hardly complimentary

While I don't usually read Ronda Rich's columns, I did on Oct. 7. The heading got my attention and I read on. She wrote about the TV series "Justified" and how good it is. While I agree that it's a great show and high on my favorites list, I am puzzled by some things she wrote about the Appalachian South. Not being familiar with her writings, I hope it was done tongue-in-cheek when she wrote, "But here's what 'Justified' does best: It gets the Appalachian South right without reducing us to mockery or ridicule."

Your Views: Hall school board needs to be aware of immunization dangers

To Hall County Board of Education: I am sure that you have been made aware by now of the recent announcement by Dr. William Thompson, formerly of the Centers for Disease Control and co-author of the study on immunizations and their link to autism. If you have not, what has come to light is that Dr. Thompson has publicly declared that the study and its findings were falsified. He has declared that the data was altered to make it appear as if there was no link.

Your Views: Climate change letter based on bogus sources

Regarding W.T. Hinds' recent letter, I noticed the online version contained citation links. After checking some, I thought it important to offer background on sources for his comment "Earth has not warmed at all since about 1999."

Your Views: Punishment doesn’t fit crime in case of Georgia star Gurley

It is absolutely unbelievable that Todd Gurley would be suspended indefinitely for playing football for Georgia for supposedly autographing some sports articles and being paid for it, while last year, Jameis Winston continued to play and won the Heisman Trophy and the national championship though he was investigated for rape at Florida State.

Your Views: No global warming for 18 years, but carbon dioxide is increasing; why?

Insanity is sometimes described as doing the same thing over and over while expecting different results. This certainly describes manmade global warming.
