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: Column is right; free speech doesn’t warrant attacks

I want to thank Mitch Clarke for his column in Sunday's paper about free speech. I agree wholeheartedly that anyone should be able to voice his opinion without being attacked by media, politicians and celebrities.

Your Views: GOP should fight harder to beat Obama

I won't say that things in our nation couldn't be worse because they could be, and God forbid, will be, if we as a free people don't wake up from this comatose condition we now find ourselves in.

Your Views: Food shortages can’t be met by increasing farm production

Is Michael Wheeler's July 19, column, "Food prices forecast to rise worldwide" a modern day prophesy?

Your Views: Would gambling revenue add to or replace school funding?

In light of the proposed expansion of gambling here in Georgia, I would like to know exactly what will be done with the funds generated. Will it be used to replace funds currently allocated from the state budget for education, therefore allowing those funds to be used elsewhere?

Your Views: Who says Hall County taxes didn’t go up?

I am really confused. Several Hall County commissioners talk about not raising taxes and a flat tax rate over the last eight years.

Your Views: Blame gun makers, NRA for making ammo available

The Colorado movie kids' accused killer had purchased the weapons legally at three area gun stores in the last 60 days and bought 6,000 rounds of ammunition online, including a 100-round drum magazine for an assault rifle. Thank goodness buying a 100-round magazine is legal and raises no flags. Nice work writing law by the NRA and the gun manufacturers.

Your Views: More laws can’t prevent violent acts from evil hearts

Our beloved nation once more must take communion from the bread of bitterness and the tea of sorrow. Another name is engraved upon the roll call of evil as Aurora is added to Tucson, Fort Hood, Virginia Tech and Columbine.

Your Views: Sales tax should aim at those who use roads most

We do not need more roads; we need fewer cars.

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: 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.
