Letters: Vote for person, not the party

I agree with Mr. Weinmeyer on at least one thing; I too love this country with its free press. But facts are facts. If he's not calling me a liar, then why does he say that everything I say about Mr. Obama is Republican or

Fox News propaganda?

Mr. Weinmeyer says that many noted Republicans are voting for Obama. Well, that proves my point; they are not chained to their party as die-hard Democrats are. I don't have to go around shouting that I'm Republican, Democrat or Independent just to please people like Mr. Weinmeyer. I have always voted for the person and not the party.

As far as Mr. Obama being raised by one party, that's not exactly true. He was mostly raised by his grandparents. His mom and dad were not exactly up for parents-of-the-year awards.

And one more thing: You people like Mr. Weinmeyer who think that Obama is some sort of Messiah, he's only one person. With all the problems facing our country and our world, even Obama, working with a Democratic congress, will not bring much change.

In a free country everyone is entitled to their opinions. And in my opinion Mr. Obama is too closely associated with some shady people, typical of south Chicago politics. With the help of his far-left Hollywood friends, he has raised a record in political contributions. And he is no friend of those of us who own guns and like to hunt. I rest my case.
