“Thank You, Robert Hurt”

Published July 30th

Published June 14, 2013 in The Farmville Herald Editor; Thank you Robert Hurt for representing me! I may not be a “0.1 percenter” but I sure want to work and save like one. I want to be able to give my children and their children the values of self-government and liberty. I do not believe we can give those ideas without living them. One of the reasons it has been difficult to create class warfare in America is because there is no shame in being poor as long as you work hard and are honest. I am responding to Mr. […]

The Fight Is Not Over!

Published November 9th

Friends & Fellow Patriots, Unlike many well meaning people, I am not going to attempt to sugar coat our loss. I am a simple man and do not like political rhetoric and eloquence without substance. So I am just going to state the facts: we missed the boat this time. But by no means was it for lack of effort. Every one of you poured your heart and soul into this campaign and gave sacrificially of your time and money to preserve this Nation and save us from the dangerous path we are on. For your efforts, I am deeply […]

Published October 24th

This letter appeared in the Farmville Herald on Wednesday, October 24, 2012. Dear Editor, “Next Tuesday, all of you will go to the polls, will stand there in the polling place and make a decision. I think when you make that decision, it might be well if you would ask yourself, are you better off than you were four years ago? Is it easier for you to go and buy things in the store than it was four years ago? Is there more or less unemployment in the Country than there was four years ago? Is America as respected throughout […]

Biden’s Debate Performance Criticized – By John Jamieson

Published October 23rd

This letter was published in The Farmville Herald on Friday, October 19, 2012. Dear Editor, The Herald Boor – noun, 1. A peasant 2. A coarse, rude person. This definition in Webster’s new abridged dictionary fits our current Vice President to a “T”. As I watched the debate between Vice President Biden and Congressman Ryan this past week, that word, derived from the old Dutch word Boer, came to mind. Biden, who is well-known for the disconnect between his tongue and brain, gets a lot of slack in the media for his malapropisms. They treat him like the political equivalent […]

The Dems Agree with Mitt Romney: We Shouldn’t Be Satisfied With Obama’s Performance

Published October 20th

This new video ad from the Republican Party reminds us that President Obama recommended, in 2009, that his presidency should be “one-term” if he didn’t turn the economy around. The video shows Obama, along with other top Democrat Party leaders, agreeing (with Mitt Romney) that their party hasn’t solved the economic crisis. This, despite Obama’s nearly four years in office, including two years (2009-2010) in which Democrats controlled all three branches of the Federal Government.   In the next video (taken from the recent presidential debate at Hofstra University), Mitt Romney reminds us that President Obama has not accomplished any […]

Tax Oath Pledgers Called ‘Courageous’ – By Cindy Koether

Published October 3rd

This letter was published in The Farmville Herald on Wednesday October 3, 2012. Editor, The Herald: In the editorial from The Herald on Sept. 21st, the Editor takes issue with a large number of conservative Congressmen who have signed the Taxpayer Protection Pledge, even calling for their impeachment because he feels they are not faithfully discharging the duties of their office. However, I applaud these courageous legislators whose pledge is in the best interest of the citizenry. These legislators have learned two lessons from past compromises involving tax increases and spending. First, they have learned the folly of agreeing to […]

Reader Fears Obama’s Reelection – By John Jamieson

Published October 3rd

This letter was published in The Farmville Herald on Friday, September 21, 2012. Editor, The Herald, In less than 6 weeks, America will go to the polls and decide the direction of the country for at least a generation. Most polls show the two candidates dead even. However, the positions of the competing parties could not be more different. In less than four years, the Obama administration has taken our country very far to the left, raising our national debt from an already frightening 10 trillion dollars to the staggering sum of 16 trillion dollars. That is a larger increase […]

A Goode Vote Is For Obama – By Randy Biggerstaff

Published October 3rd

This letter was published in The Farmville Herald on Wednesday, September 19, 2012. Editor, The Herald: Virgil Goode may be the most powerful man in the country, not Mitt Romney or Barack Obama.   There are very few people walking this earth that I respect more than Virgil Goode but he may hold the key to the White House in his hands.   If this race is as close as the experts are predicting then Virginia could very well hold the winning ticket as to who will lead this country over the next four years.   Romney and Obama are […]

Reader Supports Mitt Romney – By Don Ellington

Published October 2nd

This letter was published in The Farmville Herald on Friday, September 14, 2012. Editor, The Herald, I have watched with growing enthusiasm the candidacy, and now the nomination, of Mitt Romney for President of the United States.   My conclusion is that he is the right man at the right time to get us out of this economic mess and get us on the path for true economic recovery. Governor Romney’s proven success as a business executive at Bain Capital where he helped to launch or rebuild over one hundred companies, including familiar names such as Staples, Bright Horizons, and […]
