Voting for socialism

In their hearts, many good Democrats, even your close friends or family members, consider America to be too great for a little socialism to hurt its rich economy and world leadership. Therefore they think it’s safe to vote for the Biden-Kamala-Bernie-AOC socialist axis in November. After all, ...

How we treat others

I just finished reading Jacob Soboroff’s book “Separated,” chronicling the history of the Trump Administration’s policy of separating parents from their children at our southwest border. Soboroff was able to interview parents and children, gain access to the interior of the detention ...

Nov. 3: Who are we?

This election is not a referendum on Donald Trump. This election is a referendum on us. We already know who Donald Trump is as a human being and as a leader. On Nov. 3, we will find out who we are as a people. Do we wish to be a people who rationalize, support and imitate the words and ...

The truth about our economy

I have grown tired of hearing and reading about President Trump’s accomplishments with our economy. Sadly, his supporters have uncritically accepted his false claims of being the one who gave us the greatest economic gains in many years. They should know and accept by now that the truth is ...

Convention review

I managed to watched both the DNC and the RNC conventions. Both use pre-recorded speeches, virtual transmissions, along with a few select live speeches. Both conventions presented members of the opposing party speaking at their conventions. Both conventions showed diversity in their party. Each ...

Missing the point

Amidst great publicity, the Lincoln Project announced its formation, with the stated intent of rallying Republicans to oppose President Trump by voting for Joe Biden. Now, locally, another Republican announces his intention to similarly vote against Trump. The underlying theme of all of these ...

Help with strings attached

I recently read the article about Camp Susque and area churches providing space for hybrid students to learn. I commend those involved for responding quickly to a real need. Countless families were suddenly faced with an impossible situation of needing to work and not having child care for ...

Trump supporters

There’s no kind way of stating this but the reason this nation is in the state it’s in is because of the mentality of those who vote. I see it locally in Williamsport up close and this is of course not unique to this little hamlet. I see the hate in people’s hearts with every Trump sign ...

Right-wing disinformation

The fevered letter titled “Crucial election” about far-left Democratic Party tendencies is the usual mishmash of misinformation and hysteria. The writer sees Kamela Harris as a revolutionary when she is a moderate very much in the mold of Joe Biden. He sees an all-out adoption of the Green ...

DNC platform

To all the readers who plan on voting for Biden and other Democrats, this is what I believe you will be voting for: AOC and “the squad.” If Biden wins they will be running a lot of things. AOC is already earmarked to be his energy czar. Ask California how green energy is working ...

Clueless and soulless

Earlier this summer, Dr. Stella Immanuel was in Washington D.C. promoting her strong belief in the healing power of hydroxychloroquine against the COVID-19 virus. This is a drug that “Dr.” Trump has hailed as a remedy for months. Even though it has been discounted by Dr. Fauci and other ...

Wonderful people

I would like to say “thank you” to Chris, supervisor at River Valley Transit, and driver Andy. I recently had a wheelchair malfunction and a bus was sent to take me home. Chris went out of his way to go to HUB’s and pick up a rental chair for me. I cannot tell you how much I appreciated ...

Revised numbers

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has just released the revised numbers concerning the mortality rates for the recent virus issue. Out of 160,000 “reported” deaths, only 6 percent or 9,210 fatalities were the direct result of the COVID-19 virus. I believe this means that the majority ...

Collusion vs. corruption

I see that there are idiots still pushing that debunked theory about Russian collusion. They’re more upset about the corruption being uncovered than the corruption itself. That tells you all you need to know about today’s Democratic Party. MIKE KERSTETTER Watsontown Submitted via ...

Singing in church

Singing is a fundamental part of worship, commanded in the Scriptures. Under the new State of California coronavirus guidelines, places of worship must discontinue singing and chanting activities. It is a government mandate, but only to Church goers; however, karaoke is still permitted at the ...

Thanks but no thanks for your advice

Apparently you have been drinking the Democrat’s Kool-Aid! You start out by touting your qualifications to be a Republican advisor. Well let me tell you my qualifications: I’ve been in the full-time workforce for just over 47 years, 12 of those as a headmaster/teacher at a private school, ...

Hiawatha boat

On the front page of the paper on Sept. 8, the Sun Gazette showed the Hiawatha participating in a Trump boat parade. As far as I know, the boat is owned and run by River Valley Transit. Americans can vote or campaign for anyone they choose, but when is it acceptable to use city/public-owned ...

Why I am voting Republican

I am getting very tired of being put in a position to defend my support of President Donald Trump. Why is it necessary for me to explain my position when I have every right to my opinion? The truth is I am not just voting for Donald Trump but my beliefs in this great country. My vote will ...

Election drive

After reading the numerous pro-Trump Letters to the Editor, one must wonder why we only have a minimum voting age. Surely the majority of the Republican writers are, like me, members of the “soon to be dead” and should not be allowed to vote, let alone attempt to influence other voters with ...

With all our tech

With all the brains that our engineers have, I often wondered why somebody has not designed a better hearing aid. If somebody could design a box with a microphone would clip on the belt with a long wire that would go to an ear plug, it would be much better than the two that I have in my ears ...
