Letters policy
Send e-mail to letters@gainesvilletimes.com (no attached files, please, which can contain viruses); fax to 770-532-0457; or mail to The Times, P.O. Box 838, Gainesville, GA 30503. Include full name, hometown and phone number for confirmation. They should be limited to one topic on issues of public interest and may be edited for content and length (limit of 500 words). Letters forwarded from other sources or those involving personal, business or legal disputes, poetry, expressions of faith or memorial tributes may be rejected. You may be limited to one letter per month, two on a single topic. Submitted items may be published in print, electronic or other forms. Letters, columns and cartoons express the opinions of the authors and not of The Times editorial board.

If I were president of the United States, I would bring our troops home. We have reached our objective to put them on our borders to repel would-be terrorists.

I would install a missile defense system to repel any nuclear missiles from entering our airspace. I would put our workers back to work by getting China out of the World Trade Organization; repeal the NAFTA treaty; make all foreign cars be crushed; start making our own cars again; open up our steel plants; and drill for and stop exporting our oil.

Stop our foreign aid altogether; make everyone who is here a citizen and not allow any more to cross our borders without going through proper channels. Relieve all older than 70 years of age of any taxes, including property taxes. Make all of our leaders survive on Social Security as do the rest of us. And finally, make term limits for all who serve this once great country to two years without any retirement.

Maybe then, I, too, could win the Nobel Peace prize instead of just talking about it.
