Your Views: We need positive solutions, not more negative rhetoric

I found an answer to all the negative political ads:

Your Views: Support military budget cuts and bring American troops home

John Stossel's article in the Aug. 13 Times about wars being a waste is right on target, but he makes one premise which I find inexplicable. He points out that Mitt Romney is vehemently against the $500 billion cuts to the military proposed by President Barack Obama, and then states that defense is an area where he thinks the Democrats could make cuts in view of America's rapid path toward default, but also that Democrats "rarely cut anything."

Your Views: Voters, take time to do your duty and cast a ballot

I am writing not in support of any one candidate, but to urge every registered voter in Hall County to go to the polls and vote in the upcoming runoff and again in November.

Your Views: A return to respect, like in the ‘old days,’ is within our grasp

At 28 years old, use of the term "the old days" might imply to some that I'm referring to the early 2000s or the 1990s. I suppose they would be permitted to make that assumption according to my age.

Your Views: Voters must make right decision to get us out of debt

This coming November has got to be the most important election this nation has ever had.

Your Views: Is another traffic study needed?

I am puzzled that we, the taxpayers, are going to fork out $125,000 to complete a Gainesville and Hall County traffic study when one would think that the traffic studies completed prior the T-SPLOST referendum would be sufficient.

Your Views: Allowing young immigrants to stay in US is asking for trouble

America, are you stupid? Maybe I misunderstood, but I heard that this country is going to allow young illegal immigrants to stay here legally. Why don't you just welcome all those many breeds of terrorists to come here, too?

Your Views: Post office’s woes linked to future health care benefits

In 1788, Article I, Section 8 of the U.S. Constitution was ratified, which requires the federal government to establish post offices and post roads. As envisioned by Benjamin Franklin, the post office bound the new nation together with a presence in every community.

Your Views: Kindness of ‘little big man’ counters world of bad news

I am so tired of picking up the paper or turning on the TV to find no good news, just violence, murder, death and stealing. I just hope each time to hear something good. Please forgive me for "tooting my on horn" but I've learned if you don't, nobody else will.

Your Views: Columnist reveals faith in government, not US Constitution

William McKenzie's article in Thursday's Times, "Moderates must outwork the far right," is a classic and should be read and studied by every conservative voter.

Your Views: Voters have spoken; leaders now must alter road sales tax

The voters have spoken and the T-SPLOST was defeated by a vote count of 63 percent against on a statewide level.

Your Views: Ga. now must focus on valid road projects

The voters of Georgia should be commended for the overwhelming vote against the transportation sales tax Tuesday. This would have been a gigantic tax increase on all Georgians and would do little to alleviate traffic problems and congestion in the metro area. It was a bipartisan effort of strange bedfellows: conservatives, liberals, blacks, whites, Democrats and Republicans.

Your Views: Politicians, hear our voices loudly from Tuesday’s primary

Wow, what a wake-up call Tuesday. You see politicians, we the people do not believe your empty promises of the past and we certainly will not believe your full-of-bologna promises for your re-election.

Your Views: Election offers a choice between 2 clear ideologies

The November presidential election is the most important in the nation's history. It will be a contest between two ideologies, not two traditional political parties. At stake is whether you want to keep our free constitutional form of government or become a social welfare state.

Your Views: President was wrong to leak classified info on SEAL raid

Referring to the July 25 article about leaking classified information, I am in complete agreement with Mitt Romney. Furthermore, it was hard to believe when I saw the film which very closely (I presume) followed the exploits and duties carried out by SEAL Team Six. I spent 20 plus years in the Army and all but basic training required a top secret clearance and some even higher. In that time we could not even overfly (as a passenger) any Soviet country.

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: Mule Camp Market festival was a big success

A huge thank you should go to the Gainesville Jaycees. They did a fantastic job with the Mule Camp Market festival last weekend in Gainesville.

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.

Your Views: UGA football game experience ruined by ear-shattering ‘music’

Before I share my opinion about the University of Georgia's misguided attempt to entertain fans as they enter the stadium, I'll mention my longtime affiliation with UGA, starting with the five years I spent there as a Speech Communication faculty member, after earning my Ph.D. at Ohio University.

Your Views: Earth needs plants to clean the atmosphere

This is in reference to the ranting of the delusional Rick Frommer on Oct. 1. The letter was both hilarious and pathetic.

Your Views: Violence in ER is directly linked to a lack of mental health care

In response to Sunday's story in The Times, "Panel studying violence against emergency room workers:" We will never be able to properly address emergency department violence in America until we take a hard look at our ongoing mental health care crisis. This has led to violence in some cases by frustrated and distressed psychiatric patients who are held in emergency departments for long periods of time because there are very few options for long-term care.

I agree Mitt Romney was by far the best-prepared candidate for president; can't do it over.

Your Views: Climate change deniers fail to grasp true threat

The two global climate change deniers in the Oct. 1 Gainesville Times seem to have joined the Ostrich Club, composed of those who, like fabled ostrich behavior, stick their heads in symbolic sand to avoid grave realities.
