Vote Republican

Today’s Democrat leaders have vastly different objectives from the Democrat friends of my youth; I can’t believe these Democrat leaders represent most Democrats today. In my youth in Illinois, Americans were patriotic, anti-Communist and worked for better futures for their children; we ...

EV infrastructure

Shameful and self-serving

There are facts. And, then there are lies. The letter titled “Not far enough” in the Sunday Telegraph on Oct. 14, 2018, written in response to my letter of September 30 about the disgusting and vile attack of Senate Democrats against now-Justice Brett Kavanaugh, is yet another example of ...

Name-calling

Putting people first

Let’s put people ahead of politics to save our democracy. Our government is so polarized that many legislators regard compromise as party betrayal, according to our U.S. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen. Chris Pappas for Congress put the 230 employees of his family’s Puritan Backroom Restaurant first. ...

Politics is a sport

Winfred Landry laments that politics has become a Zero Sum Game (Saturday, Oct. 27). “Game” is the operative word. In the minds of too many people, politics is a sport. A sport in the sense that, while issues are important, what ultimately matters is their side winning. In order for ...
