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.

Your Views: A return to respect, like in the ‘old days,’ is within our grasp

At 28 years old, use of the term "the old days" might imply to some that I'm referring to the early 2000s or the 1990s. I suppose they would be permitted to make that assumption according to my age.

Your Views: Voters must make right decision to get us out of debt

This coming November has got to be the most important election this nation has ever had.

Your Views: Is another traffic study needed?

I am puzzled that we, the taxpayers, are going to fork out $125,000 to complete a Gainesville and Hall County traffic study when one would think that the traffic studies completed prior the T-SPLOST referendum would be sufficient.

Your Views: Allowing young immigrants to stay in US is asking for trouble

America, are you stupid? Maybe I misunderstood, but I heard that this country is going to allow young illegal immigrants to stay here legally. Why don't you just welcome all those many breeds of terrorists to come here, too?

Your Views: Post office’s woes linked to future health care benefits

In 1788, Article I, Section 8 of the U.S. Constitution was ratified, which requires the federal government to establish post offices and post roads. As envisioned by Benjamin Franklin, the post office bound the new nation together with a presence in every community.

Your Views: Kindness of ‘little big man’ counters world of bad news

I am so tired of picking up the paper or turning on the TV to find no good news, just violence, murder, death and stealing. I just hope each time to hear something good. Please forgive me for "tooting my on horn" but I've learned if you don't, nobody else will.

Your Views: Columnist reveals faith in government, not US Constitution

William McKenzie's article in Thursday's Times, "Moderates must outwork the far right," is a classic and should be read and studied by every conservative voter.

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: 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.
