Your View: Democratic socialism makes nation run

A recent criticism of Obamacare is that the subsidies are socialism. Helping those who have less ability to pay for health insurance to be able to actually acquire coverage may be an example of democratic socialism, but so also is Medicaid, Medicare, Social Security, and our federal income tax.

Your View: Why do many Christians back death penalty?

A federal judge recently ruled that the death penalty is unconstitutional in California. The judge believes that it is cruel and unusual punishment for a prisoner to wait too long to be executed. I believe that the death penalty itself is cruel and unusual.

Mike Hughes: Déjà vu all over again

In my first bi-weekly Enterprise column, I explained that my political awakening came when Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinski made the headlines back in the 1990s. It wasn’t so much what they did, as it was how liberal Democrats tried to write the whole thing off as no big deal. It wasn’t so much what Clinton did, as it was how he lied about it.

Your View: What’s the point of ‘Pub Perceptions’?

What responsibility should a newspaper accept for the honesty and intellectual competency of what it prints?  Certainly, letters to the editor can be afforded a wider latitude than other parts of the paper.

Robert Lindsay: Justice Ginsburg got it right.

In her dissent regarding the Hobby Lobby ruling, where the court ruled 5-4 the government can’t compel businesses of religious owners to provide contraceptive coverage to its employees; Ginsberg writes, “The Court has ventured into a minefield with its ruling.”  She is right.

Paula Williams: We must teach our children to value life

Our children are growing up in a world much different from previous generations.  There does not seem to be a day that goes by where there is not an act of terrorism somewhere on the globe confronting us in the news.  The tragedy of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 is the most recent atrocity that haunts our consciousness.
