Why has the federal government purchased over 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition since last spring? The Department of Homeland Security, FEMA, the National Weather Service, and Social Security Administration all have stockpiled ammunition. The question is why? Why haven't the people heard an explanation?Here's something else — 450 million of those rounds are hollow point bullets. These bullets are designed to expand when they hit their targets, to slow down so that they do not penetrate the target completely, and to achieve maximum tissue damage and blood loss.Please consider that it's not the military acquiring or stockpiling these rounds. It's the Department of Homeland Security and other agencies. They operate within the United States. Why won't the media cover things like this? The answer is much clearer than many want to acknowledge or perceive. That said, people will definitively know the answer to that question in due time.There was an interesting book written by Cleon Skousen in 1958 titled "The Naked Communist." In his book, Skousen cited 45 declared goals of the Communist Party to destroy the United States from within. Much has come to pass with amazing accuracy since that time. It's clear that our nation has taken an ungodly and much more socialist direction. Unfortunately, these developments will, in time, rob the United States of its sovereignty.Turn from God and you'll reap destruction. May we, as citizens, repent before God, and intercede for our government. God is the only one who can right this ship.Michael ImhofAnderson

- 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.
