Wow, this election cycle is really astonishing; the money flow, the heated rhetoric, the extreme views! I believe that the anticipated demise of our majority democratic government is greatly exaggerated. It can only happen if the majority of voters is apathetic or votes against its own interests. Let's face it, most of this country's citizens are not rich. Most will never have to worry about survivors having to pay inheritance taxes. Most pay Social Security taxes on all their earnings while those who make over $102,000 don't.

I spent so much time recently stewing about all the banking bigwigs’ multi-million dollar bonuses, that I neglected to notice my own depleted finances. Had they been siphoning money from my account to help pay for their golden parachutes? No, I guess I should have figured that if both my husband and I have been home everyday, no one was out earning a paycheck. Apparently, we weren’t on vacation. So, for the third time this year, we were in need of our own financial bailout.

In responding to David Wilcox's letter [“Terrified of President Obama,” April 5], James Clark parrots familiar liberal talking points that are for the most part baloney [“A more direct threat to freedom,” April 12]. Clark starts with the claim that the Bush tax cuts wiped out the “huge Clinton era surplus and guaranteeing decades of red ink.” In fact, the last four Clinton budgets ending on Sept. 30, 2001 increased the national debt by $394.3 billion. The “huge” surpluses were a $450.4 billion decrease in Treasury debt held by the public, the result of the growth in intra-governmental held Treasury debt, mostly the Social Security fund, which grew by $844.7 billion.

Valley View by Fereva No one in their right mind can fail to be appalled by acts of terrorism, such as the infamy of 9/11. More recently, there was the horror of an entire school held hostage in Russia for three days without food or water, a tragedy which ended in hundreds of dead children. We all agree something must be done. But what? "Let's nuke 'em!" some say. Nuke whom, and to what end? And oh, BTW, what happens when that radioactive cloud drifts across the rest of us?
