Adding to wish list for candidates in 2012 elections

In response to George Koesters' wish list letter in The Times Dec. 22, I have compiled a list of potential qualities that I would like a candidate to possess before and after the election. These might seem very cliche because rarely will any candidate before their election speak about doing these things, or continue to do them after their election. Perhaps 1 in 1,000 elected officials might do these things.

Americans, let’s embrace our true liberal soul

The word liberal is a nasty word for many people, especially in the South. That's unfortunate because no other word expresses the soul of America as well as the word liberal, which basically means free and generous.

Feds provide for immigrant farm labor within law

The visa that is available and has been for decades is the H2A. There is no limit to the number of agricultural workers that can be brought in under it. The only physical limitations under this program are the number that can be properly housed by the applicant.

Americans have turned away from their moral foundation

I am deeply concerned about the direction our nation is going and the sad state of affairs we find ourselves in. As a Christian, I feel that most of the woes we face are due to the fact that we as Americans have abandoned the faith of our forefathers in a belief in divine providence.

Special sales taxes won’t end until we vote 'no'

SPLOSTs, SPLOSTs and more SPLOSTs, revenue generators beloved of politicians and their will accomplices, Chambers of Commerce.

Lake hazards are a bigger concern than burning

Instead of the Corps of Engineers' new "prescribed burning" program at Lake Lanier, I wish they would fund the removal of boating hazards such as trees and stumps that are just under the surface at full pool.

My wish list for a true leader as next president

Irony plays a strange role. This appeared in The Times horoscope section: "For every piece of advice there is another pointing in the opposite direction." Also, "you'll be given a lot of raw ingredients and not too much as to how to put it all together."

Now is a time to pray for our nation’s welfare

Politicians and pundits like to say that this is the new normal for America, that we now have to live in fear and be prepared for the worst. This is not the plight of the America God has blessed and kept safe and allowed to prevail over all evil since her founding.

Your Views: Fort Hood shooting shows why officers should be armed

During the airing of an interview by Bill O'Reilly on Fox News on Thursday, Col. David Hunt mentioned arming the "leadership" when O'Reilly quickly blew off the suggestion. O'Reilly then continued on with leading questions about the tragedy and promoting his own agenda.

Your Views: Crime statistics don’t support tough gun laws

In his Thursday response to Jerry Callahan concerning right-to-carry laws, Michael Parker presented a comparison of Atlanta and Chicago while decrying the availability of guns. I would like to counter his argument with a comparison, albeit brief, of Chicago and Houston.

Your Views: Stats prove it: More guns lead to more crime

Jerry Callahan, in his March 27 letter to The Times, mentions the work of John R. Lott as the final word in guns and crime. Lott's empirical work, on face value, was good. Many social scientists would agree that it stimulated others to examine the subject of right-to-carry laws and any relationship with crime.
