Letter: Obama tried bipartisan approach
It always takes me awhile to digest what Jerry Grudem writes about. First, the Affordable Care Act origin was based on a 1993 Heritage Think Tank alternative proposed by Republicans in opposition to Hillary Clinton's attempt at health care reform based on the already successful Medicare...

Letter: Hope of unifying the country disappeared
With the election over and a chance to view the future based on cabinet choices and the Republican majority agenda ready to launch, any hope of unifying the country in pursuit of the general welfare has disappeared. With exception of the Secretary of Defense, every cabinet post has...

Letter: The one valid choice for president
Before Donald Trump became the Republican nominee, I swore that I would never vote for Hillary Clinton. I consider myself a Republican and have voted Republican. But Trump is a racist, sexist, bully and liar. He is completely incompetent to be president. This isn't a reality TV show!...

Letter: Four unexplainable campaign viewpoints
Why would anyone from a blue collar or middle-class background support Trump? He outsources virtually all his products, robbing Americans of jobs. He's declared bankruptcy at least four times, leaving countless small contractors and workers to pay for his mistakes. He's defrauded...
