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: T-SPLOST vote is a matter of trust

The merits of the additional sales tax are understood because the need for improvements with roads and transportation are easy to see and understand. Can we believe this is the fix?

July 26, 2012 | Letter to the editor | Letters to the editor


Your Views: Sales tax is a subsidy for increased use of fuel, cars

The argument for the transportation sales tax is based upon expediting much needed projects to be funded rather than the source of the revenue. The traditional approach for funding road work has been an excise tax on fuel, which is a user tax.

Your Views: Chambers of commerce always support sales taxes

A letter in the July 20 issue of The Times contained a curious statement. The writer said, "Is it any wonder that the Georgia Chamber of Commerce, with it's staunch record of opposing any tax increase, is squarely behind T-SPLOST?"

Your Views: Changing presidents doesn’t alter flow of power

Several years ago, I decided to try these new fluorescent bulbs that had caused such a fuss. So, the next bulb that went out at my house, I removed the old incandescent bulb and replaced it with the new experimental fluorescent bulb.

Your Views: Be careful what you wish for on Electoral College

Lots of people want the Electoral College to be abolished, and to establish term limits on our officials. In some cases that might be a good thing. I sure can think of lots of people in our government I'd like to toss out!

Your Views: Consequences of public apathy could be felt in SPLOST vote

Few people take an active interest in government affairs, though I challenge each reader to give me one example where government is not involved in your life, directly or indirectly. I have asked that question since 1986 and have yet to receive a viable answer.

Your Views: US foreign policy is a sad dramatic tale

If it weren't so tragic, the Obama legacy could be described as a soap opera, with U.S. international policy changing daily like the scripts and players change on the soaps.

Your Views: Volunteer’s work with hospital was worth sharing with readers

Thank you, C.L. Abercrombie, for the lovely article about a lovely lady, Lorena Collins. I had the privilege of having Lorena by my side Monday afternoons at the South Patient Tower Information Desk at Northeast Georgia Medical Center for a year and a half. She proved to be as knowledgeable and capable as any employee, and wonderful company. I am blessed to know her, and so glad you "introduced" her to your readership!

My father served for over four years on a mine-layer ship during World War II. He came out as a first class petty officer. My uncle fought the Japanese as a machine gunner during World War II. He came out as an E-6. I served during the Vietnam conflict. I came out as a captain.

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.
