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: 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.

Letter: Voices of hatred, war shouted their way to election victory

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: 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."

Dick Yarbrough: Skeeter has his own unique take on election

One of the dangers of providing you with my opinions each week - besides not having a clue where to put commas - is that it is easy to lose touch with reality and start acting like all the media pundits who think they are so smart that their IQs should be measured with a yardstick. My momma didn't raise me like that.
