Back Akin, oust Reid
If I lived in Missouri, I would, with no hesitation, vote for Missouri Republican Senate candidate Todd Akin.
Some of his statements and beliefs do not sit well with many people. But if he is not elected, we stand to have Harry Reid as leader of the Senate again, and he is far worse than anything Akin could or would do.
Sen. Reid is a disaster for America.
Polls, huge grain of salt
We are awash in polls. The rankings demoralize the voters.
One national poll could only be read as disgust over what has been occurring in President Barack Obama’s Washington, D.C.
What has occurred since the election? Has Obama’s Washington changed? Have those voters had a change of heart?
Have the voters all died? No. So let’s keep this in mind as we are bombarded by the polls.
I am an old man, exactly three score and 10. But after watching the four presidential and vice presidential debates, it is obvious that old men have no business moderating them.
Next time, let’s use only women as moderators.

Negative political ads
Why can’t politicians have television advertisements that say what they will do and what they have done? It is all just negative advertising about another candidate.
No wonder this country feels bad about things because it is all about the negatives about someone else. And that is mostly lies, mistruths and skewed facts.
There should be guidelines for advertisements. Tell us what we are voting for and not who we are voting against.
All politicians are in it for their own personal gain. It is a lucrative job/career at the expense of the people they are supposedly representing.
It has come down to not voting for who I think is the best but who I think is the lesser of two evils.
Gusewelle, GOP rally
I’ve always been proud to be a reader and neighbor of C.W. Gusewelle.
As a mother of seven and grandmother of nine, I appreciate his love of nature and family.
That’s why it was horribly disappointing for me to witness his bullying behavior in front of our children at a recent Republican Mitt Romney-Paul Ryan campaign rally on Ward Parkway. Sadly, Gusewelle couldn’t stop with his angry words.
He proceeded to circle our group in his Smart Car and gestured toward all participants, including our children, who were there merely to support their candidates.
Regardless of our political affiliations, I know that we, as Americans, understand and appreciate the value of freedom of speech.
It was completely inappropriate for a man with such great visibility and stature in the Kansas City community to display such juvenile and disrespectful behavior.
What message does this give to our children?
For me, I will never read another one of his columns.
