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: ‘Be the people’ letter inspires

Thank you, Candice Pinzon, so very much for your words of wisdom on the Nov. 9 Opinion page. If everyone would "be the people" as you suggest, this world would be a better place to live for all of "U.S." (United States, especially).

Your Views: Vietnam Wall memorial is a moving tribute

I went off to Washington to see all the sights I could see. I didn't plan to stay long; I didn't know how long I would be. I got a ride with a guide. He said he could show me all the sites, and for $30, I felt that was about right.

Your Views: If Obama leads nation to pray, then re-election will be worth it

Nov. 6 has come and gone, and President Barack Obama has been re-elected for the next four years. And yet I see no singing or dancing in the streets. For the most part, it appears that the anticipated joy and happiness that was suppose to result in his re-election has been replaced by grievous disappointment and gloom and doom rhetoric.

Your Views: It’s time to stop pointing fingers, unite for our nation

Since the Nov. 6 election, I've heard lots of conservatives throwing tantrums and behaving like spoiled children.

Your Views: Obama voters, don’t cry when your jobs go overseas

Four more years of the same old, same old, except you will see rising taxes, gas prices, food prices and consumer goods prices. There is no sense in stressing out over this debacle since the majority must like socialism and a welfare state like the Soviet Union.

Your Views: With election over, leaders must unite for common good

President Barack Obama was re-elected and would hope that our national, state and local elected leaders would accept this historic fact as a second opportunity to help bring our country together and work for the common good of all of the American people.

Your Views: Better nutrition for children now means a healthier military later

As we remember the many sacrifices of our military this Veterans Day, we should also consider the upcoming generation and what our nation can do to help ensure our long-term national security.

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!

Your Views: US military leaders have let president undermine security

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: Electoral College is an important check on majority rule

As a government major in college, I would like to join the letters about the Electoral College of electing presidents.

Your Views: Tips to take control of your own happiness

When I lost my wife due to illness, there were times I have said to myself, "Where do I go from here?" I have tried to build my life in the comparison of building a house by asking myself: It is not how your house looks like after it is built, but what is the house is build upon?

Your Views: One good turn earns another from Gainesville policeman

I just had a couple of things to buy at a local supermarket. As I pulled into the parking lot, I saw a parking place for the disabled. I had a hanging disability tag but someone stole it from my truck. My husband had warned me not to park in the disabled parking spaces until I had gotten the new tag for my car. But my back really hurt that day and I was only to be in the store for a few minutes.

Your Views: US Electoral College still is relevant today

In The Times on Sept. 26, 2011, Len Robbins' column, "My biannual rant about the Electoral College," asked the question, "Why should a person's vote in Wyoming count more than mine?" Wallace Armstrong's opinion of Feb. 6 seems to be the same song.

Your Views: Electoral College might be a plus only for Republican candidates

In response to a letter advocating abolishment of the Electoral College, a reader cites the 2010 census and states that since more than 80 percent of the U.S. population now lives in urban areas, abolishment of the College "would almost guarantee there would be a Democratic president in the U.S. forever."

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.
