Do Dems give hope?
The article in the Martinsville Bulletin on Oct. 10 (“GOP, give us some hope,” by John Rehder) in my opinion begs the question, Do the Democrats give us hope? The Obama administration had the majority in its first two years and all we got was the so-called Affordable Care Act. Most polls I have read say the majority of Americans are against it. When I read that this writer is asking the GOP to give us some candidates above approach I wonder if all the scandals in this administration have gone unnoticed because of liberal ideology. Also I don’t understand why the implication is there that the GOP does not have in mind the Constitution, patriotism and fairness to everyone. All the GOP wants is re-elected? Look at the premiums for 2015 Obamacare costs that will come out in the second week of November after the elections; is not that done to help Democrats get re-elected?

Another idea on Bibles
The issue of handing out Gideons Bibles at the local schools is a big issue in the area. There are many folks passionate about getting the Bibles out to students who choose to take one. There are other folks that think this is a violation of church versus state. Both sides will argue their point to the hilt.
