Intelligent voters need to use their brains

Written by 

To the Editor:

 I have been out of town so I am late in responding to my neighbor, Joanna Swanson’s diatribe of Aug. 1, detailing Obama’s “wants.”  Regardless of the manner by which politicians garner votes, they generally fit the same psychological/sociological patterns. She obviously has little knowledge or insight about the “power” of the presidency and the likelihood that Obama, or any other president, “gives” anything to the groups she identifies.

 If Mrs. Swanson took the time to investigate valid opinions of respected experts, outside the veil of Fox News, she would find that Mr. Obama scores very poorly on the index of socialism. I wonder if she realizes how comfortable her life has been living in our social-democracy?

 Mrs. Swanson is not so clever in her inclusion of terms “maybe communist,” and “Anti-Christ,” to realize that she is promoting the very worst unfounded suspicions in your readers. All the denials in the world cannot disguise the fact that a large group of influential people in this country decided at the time of Obama’s election, that they would not stand for a “black man” in our White House. The absolute obstruction by those parties, and the Tea Party particularly, of efforts to heal the nation’s difficulties is nothing other than the vilest form of racism because it impacts all of us, white, black, brown, yellow, etc.!

 The major problem at this time is the failure by reasonably intelligent voters to think! Think about what they actually know and don’t know. Think about life under the radical group that wants to control our rights, particularly women’s rights. Think about the likelihood of another war in which our children will be used as cannon fodder!

This Must Be the Place

    art theplaceClaire Lynch likes to blur lines.

    Born and raised in Upstate New York, she eventually moved away, crossing the Mason-Dixon Line for Alabama at age 12. She carried in her mind the sounds of the 1960s folk scene of Greenwich Village in Manhattan and show tunes echoing from the record player in her childhood home. Soon, she’d cross paths down South with country and bluegrass melodies radiating from Nashville and beyond.
