Letters to the Editor
To the Editor:
While we are occupied with keeping ourselves amused and entertained with movies, TV, spectator sports, racing, night clubs, porn and whatever, those who are seeking destruction of our country, along with our liberty, have been busy as a bee.
They have been infiltrating our educational establishments, our media, our government and even our churches. Their propaganda is spun at us through education (or shall I say, indoctrination) and our news, both in paper and the electronic media. Most of us accept this propaganda without challenging it.
These people are clever. Their method has been practiced in Nazi Germany, Italy, USSR, China, N. Korea, Vietnam and many lesser lands around the world. The blueprint for this political system is called Marxism. Some call it Socialism, some call it Communism, but in fact, it is neither. Those two systems suggest that the general population has a voice in their government. This is an illusion. Control lies in the hands of a select few. A more accurate name for this system is called "Serfdom," where there are few masters and the rest of the population is either slaves or dead.
It would be much to our advantage if we spend some of our free time reading news publications, newspapers, magazines and the sort. Try to balance what you read. There are slants to the stories presented. These are for you to detect and balance the conservative slants with the liberal slants, there by discerning the truth in your own mind. There are books on this subject also.
I have been harping on our need to be informed on the issues before voting. The time for voting "straight" ticket is yesterday. If we don't take care of today, we might not have a tomorrow!
It has been a slow slide into Marxism, but all their gains are inculcated into our way of life. We are accustomed to "The Government" giving us freebies and then, impoverishing us with crippling taxes. All this happened while we slept. It's time to wake up! Don't let the greatest form of government and the best by far, country, become history!
Study history, keep up with current events and see what "they" are doing to us. All what has happened so far, is the result of our ignorance and or apathy. Get involved. Be informed and let your voice be heard before it's too late!
Tanks for listening.

Keep Reagan's legacy alive
To the Editor:
America is the greatest country in the history of the world. Today, our country is headed in the wrong direction.
When the 40th president first took office in 1981, Ronald Reagan knew his fellow Americans were crying out for change. They needed a leader, President Reagan was just the man for the job.
America's 40th president wrote when a business or an individual spends more than it makes, it goes bankrupt. Reagan said, "Government is not the solution to our problem, government is the problem."
President Ronald Reagan was one of the greatest leaders in our nation's history. He knew how to lead a people. President Reagan is considered one of the most influential presidents of the 20th century.
In November, let's keep the 40th President legacy alive.
Raymond T. Thomas
