Letter: Electoral College keeps bigger cities from taking power from small states

When I see someone wanting to change the Electoral College system for electing our president (as discussed in The Times on Friday). I realize they have not studied it as I have. Because critics only look at vote totals, they remain in a one-dimensional aspect of the Electoral College and miss all the other benefits.

Letter: Clearing camps gives homeless no place to go

In the article titled "More Gainesville homeless camps to be cleared Monday," I would like to quote a sentence that reads: "And like a game of 'Whack-a-mole,' local law enforcement has prepared to stamp out these camps without the promise of alternative shelter. "

Letter: Leftist forces, supported by Obama, allow violent marches

"There is only one way in which the murderous death of the old society and the bloody birth throes of a new society can be shortened, simplified, and concentrated, and that is by revolutionary terror." These were the words of communist Karl Marx, in the Engels Neue Rheinische Zeitung article "The Victory of Counter-Revolution in Vienna," 1848.

Letter: Children show selfless love by reaching out to help a neighbor

As I walked out to get my mail on Friday of this past week, I was very weary from weeks and weeks of visiting my husband in the hospital. I did notice that my yard had been raked and all the leaves were gone. What a wonderful surprise! Who could have done this?

Guest column: Don’t fret over this ‘revolution’ as America will rise to occasion

President Thomas Jefferson said "the Revolution of 1800" was even more important than that of 1776, since the 1800 U.S. presidential election marked the first time a nation held a free and fair election in which the ruling party lost but still let the winning opposition party take over the government with no violence.

Now the election is over, I'd like to thank a few letter writers for making it an ugly and sordid testament to the depths some people will sink to manipulate the public. You know who you are.

Letter: Totems, thought germs, and how we can spread them

We live in a world filled with germs. As we go about our daily lives, we come into contact with thousands of them. Sometimes they infect our vital organs, and if they're successful, they reproduce using our bodies and spread to another host.

Letter: Clinton’s actual ‘experience’ is nothing to brag about in a leader

I agree with the main point of Jim Scharnagel's letter Friday that both Clinton and Trump leave a lot to be desired as a president, but one is going to win. However, I greatly disagree that he feels Clinton is a much better candidate. He mentions her "knowledge and experience in grappling with the numerous problems a president must address." However, he gives zero examples of her "knowledge and experience." This is because she has neither; she is totally inept and has been for the past 40 years. Examples:

Letter: Nation falls shy of attaining its democratic ideal in 3 key measures

In 1971, Howard Zinn measured our government against the harshest of all standards, the ideal of democracy. Against this, man's achievements in 1971 or 2016, although worthy of praise, fall short of ideal. Zinn measured our shortages against 10 categories. As we close Election Day 2016, at least three of those deserve another measurement: ballot access, freedom of individuality and the opportunity to protest.
