Letter: All voters deserve a part in our democracy

Recently, walking through the Oakwood Wal-Mart, I ran into former state Rep. Carl Rogers. Like always, we talked politics. We shared a concern common to candidates and elected officials, voter participation.

Editorial: A healthy dose of reality needed on Medicaid

The domino effect of Congress' failure to revise, rework or reject the Affordable Care Act last month has tossed the ball back to the states to figure out how best to deal with their indigent, uninsured residents. And this time, Georgia may have to pick that ball up and run with it.

Letter: US can’t justify entering another Mideast conflict

Reacting to alleged use of chemical weapons against opposition forces in Syria, President Donald Trump has ordered a U.S. military strike on the Syrian government. A number of cruise missiles were launched from ships against Syrian targets Thursday night. I can't believe the American public is about to fall for another neocon plan to do in Syria what we did to Iraq and Libya. We should be chastened by the horrific results of those wars.

Letter: Opposition to bilingual ballots isn’t really fiscally responsible

The Times reports that incoming Board of Elections member and former county commissioner Craig Lutz objects to the board's decision to provide bilingual ballots for upcoming elections. Lutz calls the measure fiscally irresponsible and cites costs to taxpayers. This is only one of several shifting arguments against bilingual voting materials that don't withstand scrutiny and are even contradictory. If the question really is only a fiscal one, Lutz should be relieved that by adopting bilingual ballots, the county will avoid costly court cases that have already been threatened under the Voting Rights Act.

Letter: Guns on campuses will create problems, not solve them

Gov. Deal: I hope you follow your former wisdom and again veto the bill to permit gun carry on campus.

Letter: Media’s perception management is used to push its liberal agenda

Frankly I have never heard of perception management until I read a book by David Baldacci titled "The Whole Truth." Baldacci states, "The Defense Department even defines Perception Management in one of its manuals, so the military folks obviously take it very seriously."

Letter: Profit or planet? We must choose wisely

It is time for us, as a country and as a civilization, to choose. What is more important? Is it short-term profits or protecting our earth for future generations? Are my immediate financial gains more important than passing on a livable world for my children?

Tom Crawford: We no longer have a legislature

I wish I could tell you that Georgia's lawmakers are getting better at the way they handle the people's business, but that would be a lie.

Editorial: Some hits, a few misses from the state Capitol

The General Assembly's 40-day sprint to spring is done, including both nonsense and worthwhile accomplishments. As the gavel bounced at Sine Die, many North Georgia lawmakers might have been more focused on how to make their way home after Thursday's interstate collapse.

Ron Martz: 'America First' sounds echoes of past disunity

There is a fascinating, if not eerie, precedent to the turbulent political times in which we are living.

Letter: Claim that nuclear power is 'clean,' free of CO2, is misleading

Last week, The Times published an Associated Press article that said the following: "Nuclear power is cleaner than generating electricity with coal or natural gas."

Letter: Columnist linking health law foes to abolitionists is a bogus claim

I found Wednesday's column by Star Parker ("GOP health bill foes akin to abolitionists") typical of the fuzzy thinking of most conservatives. To compare Freedom Caucus members to abolitionists of the slavery era is a stretch that boggles the mind.

Letter: Boys & Girls Clubs expand to give youth a bright future

Growing up in Hall County, it is easy to believe you have a good perspective on all aspects of the community. You fall into a comfortable rhythm of school or work, college football and church. Repeat. Perspectives are not easily changed, yet becoming acquainted with a local nonprofit not only changed my perception of that organization but also of our community as a whole.

Letter: Reagan started GOP’s disdain of government, and it lives on

On one hand, the Republicans embarrassing inability to repeal or reform a law that they have been crusading against for the last seven years is somewhat shocking. One would only assume that after so many years of patiently waiting for this opportunity, they would be more than ready to act when they regained majority power and their long-awaited moment of truth finally arrived.

Letter: Female pioneers led freedom’s march for us all by speaking up

The preamble to the U.S. Constitution reads: We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
