Letter: Crawford left out key details in his column on Collins, Broun

Tom Crawford's column Wednesday left out some very critical information. In his rush to tell everyone how "conservative" Rep. Doug Collins is, citing his conservative rating with National Journal and Heritage Foundation, he completely forgot to mention Paul Broun's ratings.

Letter: McDonald’s defies image of greed with worker wage hikes

Letter: Conservatism, states' rights don't always serve common good

"Conservatism" has become a euphemism akin to "dog whistles" of bigotry, elitism and cronyism. Some hear conservative values as a call to favor the will of the majority and denouncement of the minority and those living at the margins of life. Too often, they are told to pull themselves up by their bootstraps. Unfortunately, that reason presupposes all have equality, and all have boots.

Letter: Democrats deny voters' rights in their own party delegate process

Yet, around 30 percent of the delegates who determine the nominee for president on the Democratic ticket are super delegates who are not even selected by us voters. They are appointed by the Democratic establishment.

Letter: Voters should be able to choose ideas, not just individual candidates

As the political debates drag on and we watch with growing unease as candidates beat each other up with charges and smears we've heard over and over, I'd like to suggest we shouldn't be casting votes for individual candidates at all. Instead, the public should be hearing local debates over issues, policies and ideas, and casting their votes for planks in party platforms.
