Politicians steal children's thunder during parade

Since the Hessville Little League Parade marches down 169th, a half block from where I live, I tend to go watch it. Being an election year, this year's parade was noticeably different. Politician after politician leading the parade with campaign signs, shaking hands and acting like they care.

Well-meaning meddlers aren't what's best for us

Loren Gualandri writes that Republicans have a "hate agenda." Democrats, of course, are kind, wise and tolerant. They know what is best for all of us.

Oust politicians who don't reflect constituents' views

In the Jan. 24 issue, the article on the American/immigrant workforce, it's the political contributions that dictate our laws. The only alternative we, the public, have is to vote them out of office. A reduction of their terms is a good idea, too.

Newcomers couldn't do worse than incumbents

In the Oct. 14 edition of Barron’s, Randall Forsyth wrote, “They may be dumb in D.C., but they’re not stupid. Congress and the White House have long been used to the contempt of the electorate; if we keep sending our representatives back, why should they care?”

I agree that politicians are worse than criminals

For those of you that have not been watching "Under the Dome," you have missed one of the most surreal and truest lines of dialog ever in a TV program:

Citizens have a taxpayer advocate with Cid

I vote mostly for Republicans, but I have on occasion supported candidates from the rival party.

Conservatives, liberals share right to share views

It's funny to me how so many liberals manage to catch the same illness. Many have the "itis" disease. Palinitis, Tea Party-itis, Republicanitis, etc.

We have a bunch of clowns disguised as leaders

Calling all conservatives, reactionaries, liberals, progressives, Libertarians, socialists, utilitarians and vegetarians. Aren't you sick of getting ripped off by Washington?

Join Occupy movement, support political action

Technology allows outlets to the Internet, cable news, PBS, Sunday and weeknight political programming. Boring falsehoods, favorable spins, dominate by design?

Learn U.S. Constitution to take America back

Washington is going through multiple government scandals, and our president doesn’t know who is responsible. Maybe he should look in the mirror, because he is the executive in charge of these scandalous departments.

Stop sending borrowed money to other nations

For decades, we have given borrowed money and materials to other countries. Today, we have our brave soldiers stationed in more than 100 countries.

American voters will replace politicians who fail us

This is an open letter to all politicians, local, county, state and national. I belong to the largest unincorporated group in the world. I'm a voter in the United States of America.

See where House, Senate, presidential fingers point

I am writing this short letter in response to Bill Masterson Jr.'s Jan. 3 column about simple tax reform. Masterson mentions finger-pointing by the "president and Congress."

Think of the harm from politicians' harebrained ideas

It never ceases to amaze me as to how stupid our governors, mayors and all politicians are. To vote for airports in Peotone, Ill. when there are at least 10 to 15, all in the general area, which are all usable in emergencies such as the one Oct. 31, 1994, in Roselawn.

Election should show politicians they need to compromise

The election should tell a very important story to the politicians. The election was almost split down the middle. That tells me that nobody is happy with either party.
