Viewpoint: Lack of mandatory limits in Senate is dangerous

Many people have been made a fool by Obama. You cannot claim ignorance this time. If you voted Obama this time you may be a socialist. We all know politicians lie, but Obama has committed several acts of treason, that is giving aid to the enemy. He has proven his allegiance to Muslims and shown contempt to America and Americans. No one calls for justice; no one pleads a case with integrity.

They rely on empty arguments, they utter lies; they conceive trouble and give birth to evil. Obama promises not to increase tax on low and middle class, but Obamacare is at least 21 taxes. You should now see the Trojan horse in this act.

“An unlimited power to tax involves, necessarily, a power to destroy; because there is a limit beyond which no institution and no property can bear taxation.” — John Marshall.

Everybody wants something for nothing but this taking from the rich to give to the lazy will not work. I paid off my house with hard-earned money. That feels good. Give the lazy man a fish and he will expect you to give him a fish every day the rest of his life. Encourage same man to earn his own way and he will build his own self-respect and show others to do the same. The last two years of Bush administration was controlled by Democrat House (Pelosi) and Senate (Harry Reid), Obama’s first two years was all Democrats yet they accomplished nothing. This is not working. This is not your grandfather’s Democratic Party. To take care of orphans and widows is good but those giveaway programs and our tax dollars to overseas countries must stop. We need to keep government out of the church as Obama has told the Catholic church how they must do. But get God in every act and obey his commandments or face the consequences of our own depravity.

  • Viewpoint: Voters, especially seniors, should ask questions It’s that time of year again. Kids are getting ready for school, corporations are reviewing their semi annual reports and — yes — many seniors are filling out their absentee ballots. Some are voting because they are fed up with the status quo, some out of habit and some because they feel it is their civic duty.

  • Viewpoint: Adding such a robust water resource with Mounds Lake would set us apart I have lived in Madison County most of my life, and for the past 14 years, I served on the Town Council in Pendleton, recently retiring as president. I have watched with great interest the happenings around the proposed Mounds Mall for a few reasons.

  • Letter: Dr. David and Kay Mares are local treasures Throughout history we have had treasures that were not appreciated until years or centuries after their time. The lost art of Angkor Wat in Cambodia. The terra cotta men of China. Vincent Van Gogh was a failing, starving artist in his time. Now his works are some of the world’s most valued. Madison County has a prize of its own that should be recognized in its time.

The council rushed the vote for zoning the land for business.

  • Letter: Birth control, abortion should be woman's choice Why are Republicans so gung-ho on restricting birth control and abortion? That's easy. Republican legislators are so unpopular because they don't legislate and literally block all bills that would help the middle and lower income classes.

  • Bannon, Tom Viewpoint: Paramount is an investment that is paying dividends About 25 years ago the citizens of Anderson made a decision that would have a long lasting impact on the community. Instead of saving the old Paramount Theatre, which had fallen into serious disrepair, it was decided that the easy and prudent decision was to get rid of the building to create additional downtown parking. Shortly after the Paramount came down, the community got rid of another abandoned structure when the old Carnegie Building, which was the former home of the Anderson Public Library, was torn down.

  • Letter: Wall Street should not be in politics Talk about corruption, ponzi schemes, we're looking at you, Wall Street, controlling the prices of our food, gasoline and clothing we must buy and about every company in America — while trashing President Obama, the Affordable Health Care Plan, along with every Democrat, to influence our elections, at the same time.
