Your Views: GOP takes a step back in women’s rights

Since I became old enough to read, and understand what I read, it has bothered me how women have at least for hundreds of years been treated like second-class citizens.

Your Views: Nation’s leadership has turned too far away from our creator

I've heard it said that the two things you don't discuss are religion and politics. However, ironically theses seem to be at the root of most of the woes we face as a nation.

Your Views: Will voters pick freedom or socialism?

I watched the Democratic National Convention and noticed they were describing a patriot as someone who pays their fair share of taxes. A patriot, by definition, is someone who vigorously supports their country. It is not related to how much a person pays in taxes, but more properly is measured in how committed they are to the principles and ideals of their country.

Your Views: Pedestrian bridge offers a classic look

Judging by commentaries after your recent Times articles, absolutely no one has anything good to say about the just-opened bridge over Jesse Jewell Parkway. The bridge has actually become the local "joke" in many conversations when anyone mentions Gainesville.

Your Views: In reality, some are more free than others

It's important to get beyond various secondary arguments and focus on main principles. In talking with various people, both conservative and liberal, our core political debate comes down to two questions:

Your Views: Share your love for those gone and those still to come

A few weeks ago I walked into a local restaurant to have a quick brunch before I headed off to a meeting for work.

Your Views: Obama can’t tout his successes, so he merely goes on the attack

Have you noticed that the Democrats have quit touting Obamacare and have started badmouthing the Republican party, i.e., Mitt Romney and his Mormon religion?

Your Views: Better to keep libraries open later for students

I agree with Myra Meades' comments about cutting library hours affecting education. What Adrian Mixon apparently did not take into consideration is the fact that most of the students who use the library computers in the evening, probably can't afford them at home. A student today can't just bring home a book and do their homework like their parents did. Mine is a family who uses this service because we can't afford a home computer.

Your Views: Oil companies take advantage of consumers by raising gas prices

Wake up people! You want to get a start on fixing the economy, let's demand that we are no longer subjects of a kingdom run by oil companies. Gas just went up 39 cents in three days. Why? Because the media said it would; because the oil companies wanted it.

Your Views: Cutting Hall’s library funding hurts education

My first thought as I saw your Wednesday headline, "Library cuts hours, closes weekends" was: Where are our priorities?

Your Views: Take the time to make sure kids drive safely

Those first few years when our sons and daughters receive their drivers license can be a tense and prayerful time for parents every time they drive. We always hope they'll drive safely and come home alive, along with their friends.

Your Views: Medical center, insurance provider need to reach deal or patients lose

Like most North Georgians, I take pride and comfort in the excellence of Gainesville's hospital and doctors. And as part of a family covered by UnitedHealthCare are insurance, I enjoyed the security of knowing that the coverage we'd purchased would be there for us if the need arose.

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.
