Sacrifice is the price we must pay for freedom

What makes me shake my head about Republicans and tea party members is that they are self-centered and only think about their wallets while hiding behind the flag and proclaim liberty and freedom.

Nice to see Times continue a welcome Fourth of July tradition

Surely more than a few readers of The Times settled in with their paper on the morning of the Fourth and savored, along with their coffee, the reason for the holiday and some of America's best civic poetry: Mr. Jefferson's draft of the Declaration of Independence, as edited and approved by friends, colleagues and political leaders, in General Congress Assembled. And reprinted on The Times editorial page.

If illegal immigrants don’t like our laws, they are free to leave

To all you illegal immigrants, don't threaten us to leave if you don't get what you want: Just go. We won't stop you. Then maybe legal people can get their jobs back and be able to keep their homes, cars and keep food on the table.

Do teachers want illegal students to save their jobs?

You want your cake and eat it, too, as my mom use to say. Brandon Givens' views on immigration reform (July 1) leave out a few key points.

Global warming fears are just another way to control people

This is in response to a recent article by Joan King. In it, she sounded so exasperated, feeling like she'd written everything and all she could concerning global warming and yet some of us skeptics still don't get it. She talks of a consensus of scientists who are all on board with this theory. She also stated they had come to an agreement it is caused by man-made carbon emissions.

Stop criminals from crossing our borders

On July 1, The Times had a piece on Georgia House Bill 87. On July 3, there was another article declaring HB 87 as un-Christian.

History shows discrimination is just wrong

I appreciated the article in the July 3 editon of The Times, "Christian leaders struggle with immigration law." I noted that one of the persons you quoted said, "Laws are important."

Price of more than gas has skyrocketed

I noticed an item in the paper recently that caught my attention. It stated that Social Security was projecting a cost-of-living adjustment of 0.9 percent for this year. This, after figuring that the cost of living had not gone up at all the last two years. Talk about adding insult to injury.

Marriage is a sacrament that should be between man, woman

It is difficult for me to understand Cokie Roberts' explanations and justifications for her opinions of homosexual acceptance.

Political correctness forces Southern traditions to sidelines

Have you heard what Bill O'Reily said on Fox News recently? A school in New York City can't mention religion, so the children are singing "When the ants go marching in."

Counselor defends work at Community Service Center

I attended the recent public meeting of the Hall County commissioners, but did not speak due to time restraints.

Residents deserve to know how Hall commissioners made cuts

What was the process for deciding "who" and "what" got cut from the recently approved Hall County budget?

We need to elect people who believe in fiscal responsibility

I have seen a couple of articles where Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., has referred to tea party people as extremist. He is the third-leading Democratic senator and has held his office for about 12 years. Currently we have a financial crisis, an immigration crisis, Social Security is going broke, Medicare is going broke, our energy policy is a disaster, food prices are terrible, etc. Most of our congressmen have been there over 10 years and are doing a terrible job.

Commissioners’ actions made Hall County weak

One Hall County commissioner has indicated to me that he plans to "modify the tax bill to allow for people to donate to the programs that were cut." Here is my reaction to that commissioner's statement:

New leaders are needed in Hall, city governments

The financial health and well-being of this county and the city of Gainesville will get no better until new people step forward to run for the Hall County Board of Commissioners and the Gainesville City Council.

Your Views: Renewing driver’s license shouldn’t be such an ordeal

Where did that five years go? Time to renew my driver's license. At least I did remember this time.

Your Views: More lies from the White House over voting case investigations

Here we go again, folks. A couple days ago, President Barack Obama spoke to an Al Sharpton audience spewing more lies that the GOP is trying to stop people from voting by requiring them to show an ID. Lie, lie, lie.

Your Views: Lula could use new blood, more reasonable rules

It is my hope that some new blood on the Lula City Council will bring an end to silly regulations like the one requiring a resident to pay a fee and to get the city's approval in order to have a yard sale on his own property. I know that part of the fee is refundable if the yard-saler cleans up his property to an inspector's satisfaction after the sale.

Your Views: Racism is used by Democrats to demonize their political foes

There is hardly a day that goes by when Democrats fail to use the term "racism" in some sort of capacity regarding conservatives. It is the current buzz word that they hope will keep them relevant in upcoming elections since they have very little else to hang their hat on: the train wreck of Obamacare, Benghazi, the IRS scandal, Lois Lerner, endless executive actions without congressional approval, and the list goes on.

Your Views: Patriots to gather May 16 in DC to support constitutional ideals

As Georgia patriots and members of Patriots for America, we are reaching out to all Georgians about the event "Operation American Spring" that is scheduled to begin in Washington on May 16.

Your Views: More guns aren’t a problem if those carrying them are legal

I am a gun owner with a concealed carry permit, and I think if more people had guns and were licensed to carry, we might have a safer city or community. My reason of thinking is if you possess such a permit, then you are less likely to commit a crime because you have paid the money for it and have no record or serious or violent crimes against you. We are basically law-abiding, gun-carrying people who are exercising our Second Amendment rights.

Your Views: Congratulations to attorney Orr on earning prestigious honor

On behalf of the State Bar of Georgia, I wish to congratulate E. Wycliffe "Wyc" Orr Sr. of Orr & Brown LLP in Gainesville on receiving the 2014 Lifetime Achievement Award presented by the Southern Center for Human Rights.

Your Views: Sprawl lowers costs and raises quality of life

Give me the sprawl. I love it. Hopefully, Hall County municipal fathers will attempt to get sprawl (according to the Hall County sprawl index published in The Times on April 12) down to 50 from its current 103.3.

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.
