Your Views: Country was founded on worship of our creator

The nation's leadership has not turned too far away from our creator. I have heard it said that politics and religion don't mix and they don't. But politics, God and country do exist, and it was founded on this by our forefathers, leaders and politicians.

Your Views: Editorial about Mideast protests fails to engage in critical thinking

After reading the Sept. 16 editorial, "Freedom under fire," I have found a few errors in your thinking process, which can cause a hindrance in the critical thinking process. The errors in the critical thinking process addressed can be found in Vincent Ruggiero's text, "Beyond Feelings: A Guide to Critical Thinking" (2012).

Your Views: Protests in Mideast were planned; US wasn’t ready

It is not about the First Amendment, free speech, and it never was. The Egyptian, Yemen and Libyan protests were planned demonstrations - planned, according to Al-Jazeera, weeks, perhaps months before Sept. 11.

Your Views: Foster system is broken; animals have more rights

We have more rights and laws in place for animals, than we do for foster children. Surprised?

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.
