We all wish everything was as warm and touchy-feely as Mr. Arthur Phillips describes (letters to the editor, Oct. 17), especially when discussing politics. God bless his heart, but just where in heck has he been?
In politics, all is fair, etc. (Seen MSNBC lately?) I applaud his desires for how things "ought" to be, we all desire that. But then reality rushes right back up into your face, and you have to look it right in the eye! (Politically correct version).
Our country, and what we all love about it, is being torn away from us and we cannot go through another four years of what we have been through this last four years. We have to stop this downward momentum in our economy that Mr. Obama (and the people who voted for him) has perpetuated. We must get it started going upward again. Give one of the other candidates a chance this next four years — if they can't get things going in an upward direction, then pick another one next time.
