    Be careful what you ask for

    In October 2009, then Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi told Congress the Affordable Health Care Act, aka Obamacare, would be voted on the day after the 2,500-plus page bill was given to members of Congress. The vote went along party lines with the majority Democrats passing the bill.

    If ever there was a great example of oxymoron, calling this bill “affordable” is it. There is nothing affordable about it.

    Supporting Obama

    Gov. Mitt Romney supports cutting Social Security and Medicare to reduce the country’s debt. This puts the burden on the elderly and is morally wrong. Our seniors need these programs to live decent lives and they contributed from their paychecks all their working lives. Yet, you heard it during the debates, he won’t touch the tax cuts for the top 2 percent super rich, which would supply hundreds of millions to our country’s treasury and could help reduce the debt.

    Endorsing Obama

    I truly believe President Barack Obama is not only the most sincere president we’ve ever had, but he is a man of great convictions. He has striven to achieve all of his campaign promises while facing many obstacles. He has been blamed for everything that is wrong with this country when everyone knows the country already was in this condition when he became president.

    I will support and vote for Obama because it is the only sensible thing to do for our country.

    Shame on Haynes

    You wouldn’t know it from Charles Haynes’ recent column, but I would like to remind you 75 Americans have been killed on U.S. soil with 2,000 Americans injured and all by Muslims. They may have been American born who converted or foreign born who we graciously allowed to come here who were the killers, but nonetheless they claimed the Muslim faith as their own.

    Veteran for Romney

    I don’t know about you, but to me $70,000 is a lot of money. That is the amount spent recently by President Barack Obama to pay for commercials in Pakistan apologizing to the mobs who attacked our embassy and burned our flag. This is but one part of a campaign of apology and appeasement tried regarding an Internet video released in July.

    Move forward with a proven leader

    I am a firm believer in the saying “May the work I’ve done speak for me.” If you plan to vote for a president and vice president who care about America then vote Obama/

    Endorsing Broadwater

    I am asking voters in the 5th Division Hardin County Schools board race to vote for Suzy Broadwater. She has remained faithful to the needs of this district with consideration to improving facilities and student achievement in our local schools.

    Republican philosophy failed before

    History is to be respected not repeated. Both our political parties seem to ignore the lessons we learned in the past and keep repeating them. Democrats have Vietnam; Republicans have Iraq and Afghanistan for their share of history.

    Defending families

    A key issue in November’s election briefly flashed into the spotlight during last Tuesday’s debate. Though virtually ignored by President Barack Obama and the media, former Gov. Mitt Romney’s stress on the importance of fostering marriages and families to stem the onslaught of violence in our country makes sense.
