Letter: The real meaning of liberty
I had to chuckle while reading Lee Paulson’s “Save us from religious tyranny” letter of Sept. 14. I don’t exactly disagree with him on the specific issue of unfettered immigration, but I did find amusing his adamancy in pontificating his American right to publicly insist that...

Letter: Don't take freedoms
I find it interesting that the Republican Party that supports less government control and involvement in our lives has decided to control our right to vote and our choice in marriage. As a nation founded on freedom, we should not be using laws to take away people's rights and freedoms...

Letter: Government vs. freedom
I would like to respond to Harlan Broers' June 8 letter. First, it is claimed that "the church will dictate how we will live". Luckily for us, we live in a country with a regime that is not quite dictatorial in nature. In Iran, you can be put to death for preaching the Gospel or stoned...

It is clearly evident that the lifetime legislators, widely known as the Ruling Class, have led our states and nation down the path of bankruptcy, bondage and generational servitude. Their policies of borrow, spend, taxation, credit, corruption, coercion and regulation are stealing...

Letter: Bring back the Freemen
