Letter: Don't be fooled by Romney
How can anyone with an engaged mind even think of Mitt Romney? He has constantly lied to us and changes his position on the issues every other day. He'll tell any group just what they want to hear. Now he is courting the women. These Republicans have shown a real disdain for women....

Letter: Socking it to the underclasses
It was once said by Republican leaders that what is good for business is good for America! Under Romney and crew, however, I think the statement must be modified to say: What's good for big business is good for executive salaries and really bad news for all employees and the middle...

Letter: Cheating to get rich
Why do all Tea Party or Republicans or right-wingers figure that if you cut a foot off the top of the blanket and sew it to the bottom of the blanket it will make it longer, which seems to be their solution for today's problems? Is it because they are dumb or greedy or just cheat...

Commentary: The thunder roar of a gov in state of New Jersey

Letter: What Republicans want
What do Republicans want? Who will benefit from their desires? Take the issue of health care. Every major nation on earth, except the U.S., has health care for everyone and is cheaper than ours. How can Republicans claim our system is the best? Do Republicans care for children? Presently...

A writer to the West Central Tribune announces that he is a Christian and lives according to Christian principles that entitle him to give of his time but in no way obligate him to share his wealth by paying a fair share of taxes to his country. Apparently he has read John 3:16 and...

Letter: Those trickle-down economics
I have been watching the progress of Congress's bailout voting with interest and not a little bemusement. For at least two decades, and even during the last federal election cycle, I have heard Democrats criticizing the "trickle-down theory" of economics that is credited to former...

Letter: A far cry from the Gospel
Right now John McCain is denouncing "Share the wealth" and crowds of conservative Christians boo loudly in approval. Any such compassionate sharing of our worldly good is considered atheistic Communism to their peculiar way of thinking. It sounds suspiciously Christian to me and...

Letter: Reasons to vote no Obama
I can think of many moral reasons to not vote for Barack Obama. He has palled around with terrorists despite what you want to believe. He votes "present" instead of taking a stand on issues. He might not even have been born in this country. He won't release his records. He believes...
