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: Pray for an end to abortion pandemic There are few, if any, conditions of our day that have more impact on our lives than the shameful practice of abortion – a legalized form of murder. There are many who say that should not be spoken in polite society. There are others who buy into the fabrication that since abortion is legal, it must be a non-issue.

  • Viewpoint: Politicians creating instability in public schools

    I will begin this correspondence by stating I have known hundreds of educators from across the state of Indiana. There are a couple of fibers that commonly run through the character of most of these great people, educators truly care about kids, and they do not fear a fair and equitable evaluation.

  • Viewpoint: Resources are available to prevent child abuse The word "courage" is often associated with the fight against child abuse. Front line victim advocates have long recognized the need for courage in order to protect victims. Behind the scene advocates need courage to fight for funding and attention to the cause.

  • Viewpoint: Tree City USA distinction laughable I thoroughly enjoyed your April Fools' editorial announcing that the city of Anderson had received the Tree City USA distinction. Had I not realized it was a joke, I would have choked on my coffee. I was a little concerned that you did not announce to some of the less enlightened readers that it was an April Fools' joke.

  • Letter: Indianapolis will be the winner with reservoir There have been many articles in The Herald Bulletin both pro and con about the proposed Mounds Lake reservoir. Let me put my two cents worth in, and I am sure that is how some will take it.
