  • Obama isn’t the answer

    To the editor:

    Barack Obama is a product of the Saul Alinsky radical socialism and redistribution of wealth. For Alinsky, the mantra was “change,” as outlined in his book “Reveille for Radicals.”

    For Obama, this is the same. He has avoided being exposed until “Joe the Plumber” came along and questioned him.

    For Alinsky and Obama, there is a careful calculation of tactics where the end always justifies the means. They ridicule opponents when the arguments of the opponent could not be refuted by logic, evidence or argument.

  • Tired of Dole and McCain

    To the editor:

    There are a few things that bother me. Gas prices now reflect the fact oil companies have been gouging us for years. When they can make $30 billion in three months, something is wrong.

    I do not understand how the same crooked politicians like Dole and McCain, as well as others like them, keep getting elected year after year.

    They are both for the oil companies so they can get more graft. They are for the rich and the general public. They only work for their own private interests. Get rid of the crooks and put people in who will work for us.

  • Candidates need blueprints for plan

    To the editor:

    In some elections, you have two candidates, and in others, you have multiple ones.

    Before moving south, I was a builder, land developer and Realtor. Every time someone had an idea to develop land, build a home or buy real estate, they needed a plan and eventually a blueprint.

    Elections are set up to confuse you, and they don’t have to be. Show anybody a blueprint of your plan you intend to build, and they will get the picture loud and clear even if they do not know how to build anything.

  • Likes Sarah Palin

    To the editor:

    Staff writer Laura Lewis wrote an article in last week’s Beacon titled: “Seems like everybody doesn’t like Sarah P.”

    I like Sarah Palin. Though I haven’t been given the opportunity to really get to know her, what I do know does not cause me to dislike her. Her popularity has plummeted not because of any public dislike but because of a real concern regarding what we do know as the election draws near.

  • Liberal politics is not the answer

    To the editor:

    It seems by all the polls Senator Obama will be our next president.

    There is a real anger and hatred toward President Bush by liberals and a real dissatisfaction among voters who are tired of eight years of his policies.

    This combination of hatred by liberals and change wanted by many voters is causing an unusual combination of people coming together to vote into office as president the most liberal senator in the Senate.

  • Disagrees with writers

    To the editor:

    I respectfully disagree with writers of several submissions in your last publication.

    When all else fails and all that remains is desperation, blame it on the liberal influence within the Democratic Party.

    In deference to the Republican Party, the Democratic Party has a healthy mix of liberal and conservative participants. That’s the best the Republican Party can concoct in a last ditch effort to maintain control and continue their government “of the wealthy, for the wealthy, by the wealthy.”

  • Get out and vote

    To the editor:

    To the citizens of Brunswick County: Please vote.

    In a few days, we will be given the right to vote for the people to run our school system for four more years. We need to take a long, hard look at what has taken place the last few years and look for something better in the coming years.

  • Darwin or Design?

    By Robert A. Weathers, pastor

    First Baptist Church

    Guest Columnist

    Evolution. There. I said it. And my brain didn’t melt, the world did not disintegrate, and most importantly, I didn’t get fired.

    So why is it Darwinists think if they utter the word “creation” in the classroom their pristine reality will collapse and they will suddenly be branded as anti-intellectual?
