Viewpoint: Core values — things that you would give your life for

I’m confused. Are you also?

How do you swear to uphold the Constitution if you don’t know what’s in it?

How do you take that oath then work to get rid of our freedoms described in the Constitution?

How do you say you are against abortion yet support the abortion party which has become the Socialist Democratic Party? Why have so many abandoned our country in favor of a party? Why don’t we vote to save our country by voting for people that insist on and working for constitutional government?

We now have mostly Socialist Democrats, a very few real Democrats, Constitutional Republicans and gutless Republicans. We also have a few Libertarians, but being a third party, they have more voice than power.

Why do we allow the government leaders pass laws and then exempt themselves from them?

We fought the Civil War that freed the slaves and now we are voting ourselves back into slavery to the federal government. The “Obamacare” law isn’t about health, it’s about government power over our lives.

I’m sure that you have heard of the tea party and Freedom Works, but have you ever attended a meeting? Yet you are willing to take the word of others as to what they stand for. As a member, let me tell you what they are all about. They stand for God and the Constitution. We invite speakers to come and present their case to the people. We don’t tell people how to vote, but ask them to vote for a constitutional leadership. The speaker may be of any party, race, or religion. We have had many of each. The speakers must sell themselves. We never allow heckling or abusive behavior. It’s harder to get Democrats to speak as peer pressure is hard to overcome.

  • Viewpoint: Veterans' stories of patriotism, loyalty are uplifting As a professor at Ivy Tech Community College, I continually see very diverse backgrounds of our students. This semester has been especially satisfying in that the class, Fundamentals of Public Speaking, has a myriad of circumstances and lifestyles. I have been fortunate to have three veterans in my class who have served in the Armed Services.

  • Letter: City beautification ignores other areas I read in the paper where they are going to start work on their great roundabout. What a waste, they are spending millions on the south side for the great gateway to Anderson and all the while the rest of Anderson is ignored.

  • Letter: Poll shows priorities are backward Your recent polling question about schools providing free food for children tells us society has its priorities backwards. The conservatives want low taxes. 53 percent said no to feeding the kids.
