Re: “Douglas County claims lowest price of kid poverty in nation,” Dec. four information story
Congratulations to Douglas County for having the bottom (however existent) little one poverty price within the nation, however because the article talked about, poor folks can’t get in right here within the first place, it’s so costly. Poverty is outlined as $25,000 a 12 months for a household of 4. Ouch, consider attempting to maintain a roof over your head at that revenue on the Entrance Vary.
Our president campaigned on serving to the working class. What has been achieved? A tax invoice with many of the advantages going to companies and the rich, with an enormous funds deficit thrown in, and an effort to curtail meals stamps, social safety, and Medicare. This Hanukkah and Christmas season is an efficient time to test our priorities.

With all due respect to Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi and her a few years of service as Home minority chief, with all the superb energy and variety of the younger new leaders elected it’s time to step apart and let the subsequent era transfer ahead.

Hold the electoral faculty
Re: “Assist for common vote,” Dec. 1 letter to the editor
Assist for the favored vote? Not me! I learn the opinion of Glen T. Bailey on Saturday. He was proclaiming the necessity to rid ourselves of the dreaded Electoral School system.
I hope it by no means occurs. It could be a catastrophe. Why? As a result of then the USA would have the identical issues we’ve on this state and lots of different states the place I’ve lived. The massive metropolitan cities run the states. Denver and Boulder mainly personal the state and decide each end result. The sensible factor to do can be to implement an Electoral School for the state. That approach all voices could possibly be heard. What Denver and Boulder suppose is nice for them doesn’t all the time apply to all the state.
Do you really need California and New York to inform everybody within the USA what to do and suppose?

I’m so sorry for the individuals who advocate the elimination of the Electoral School. When the Structure was drawn up, the nation was small however very unfold out. Any clever candidate would solely journey to the bigger cities to satisfy and discuss to probably the most residents at the moment.
In our current period, that also holds true to some extent. Now all of the candidates must do is talk to the folks within the largest cities and suburbs. The folks in small cities, cities and on the farms would by no means be promised something and even considered.
Below the present Electoral School system, roughly three-quarters of the states now have a voice in selecting our president. That’s what a real Democratic Republic is. Elimination of the Electoral School ought to by no means happen.
