Politics

Dear pro-lifers, It is almost impossible to please everyone. In a debate, there are always opposers, supporters, and people in between that can’t commit to one side or they feel indifferent. But no matter what, even those that claim indifference or can’t pick a side, everyone always has a bias. As a woman, I may be biased, but biased towards what I believe is in the best interest of women in general. Abortion is a debatable topic that has passionate and biased supporters and opposers, and it seems as though the passion and biases are so strong that the opposing sides will never come to an agreement or resolution. I believe it is important to be open-minded, put your passion and bias aside, and view a debate from the opposite perspective. Although it can be very difficult to do, I ask...

Dear Flag Kneelers, “Oh, say, does that Star-Spangled Banner yet wave, o’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?” As I finished signing these renowned words with heartfelt affection, there was a moment of awed silence that came over the audience. It wasn’t because of the way I sang, but the words of the anthem seemed to silently echo in the air. In this moment I was once again reminded of the unique way our national anthem brings Americans together and the beauty of the country the song represents. Only a year after I sang "The Star-Spangled Banner" at my varsity volleyball game, the words of our national anthem that should unite us began to bring community tension. During the customary playing of the U.S. national anthem before National Football League (NFL) games, many...

Dear Middle Class America, At some point, most of you have been told that poverty in the United States is “not that bad.” It’s true that poverty in America is not the same as it is in in other nations. Most poor people here have running water in their homes, and most eat at least once a day, so it’s easy to assume that it’s not that bad. However, despite the differences, I urge you to open your mind to the possibility that your understanding of this issue is severely limited. In the United States, poverty looks like children eating once a day at school because they get a free meal there. It’s sleeping in room with two other people, working full-time when you’re just a child, and never having a Christmas, Thanksgiving, or an Easter celebration. For some, it’s sleeping on the streets,...

I hope the house& senate intelligence committee as well congress will continue with the investigation of the russians&trump campaign .The american people need to know the truth whether the trump campaign was working with the russians to help Donald Trump win the 2016 election. The russians interfere in the election to help one candidate &to hurt another candidate. The intelligence committee should continue with the investigation until it solid prove to show whether or russians was helping one candidate to win another to lose as well to investigate whether the russians was working alone or with help from the trump campaign. The democracy of every american vote count legitimately that voted in the election Americans need to know the truth of the outcome of the election.

Representative Keith Sommer 216 – N Stratton Office Building Springfield, IL 62706 Dear Representative Sommer: I am sending this letter to both your Morton and Springfield offices in the hopes that one of them will reach you (and that you actually read it) before you have the opportunity to vote on a historic constitutional amendment, the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA), which will affect not only citizens in your district, but all of Illinois, and the nation. As you are aware, the national spotlight is once again on Illinois for at least two reasons. First, the Illinois General Assembly will vote on ratifying the ERA in the near future to amend the U. S. Constitution to assure that women in America are treated under the law equally to that of men. This vote, granting equal...

I am writing this letter in my personal opinion, as a 30-something year old white South African man. I am proudly Afrikaans, or in the (derogatory?) plain sense, I see myself as a Boer. INSTANTLY, I am marked as a racist, for associating myself with my history. Yes, my forefathers made mistakes, and yes, me and my generation of Afrikaans and English white people in South Africa, are paying for those mistakes. We are living the life sentence of our racist forefathers, by being marked as racist (though majority of white people accept our fellow black South Africans as brothers and sisters) or being unable to apply for scholarships, tenders, employment or many of the things which we have already accepted as the norm in the “New” South Africa. We look at our farms and land being stripped and...

An Open Letter To All, Racial and social inequality is a dire topic and one that needs to be addressed in this country. In the land of the free and the home of the brave we are seeing too much oppression and fear. The United States is not united, and the divisions are becoming more pronounced. The feeling of “us” versus “them” is infecting more than our national policy, it has its hands in every crevice of our society. How can we, as Americans, get over the tensions and tribalism and become the nation that lives up to our ideologies? The only answer I can dream up is to bring people together, those of all types, and form the bonds that cross the lines of our limited experiences, to open the door to positive interaction between the many walks of life that exist in this great country. I...

Donald Trump as a commander of cheif leader of the military service you show no respect to the four service men that made the ultimate sacrifice of service to the United states that serve in Niger Africa. I' m thinking that young men serve in"Africa" in which I know you're fond of citizens of minorities base on your history with black housing denial the central park young men you accuse of rape of a young girl that found innocent so forth. You're a leader of the united states your duty as a commander to pay respect...
