Letter writers: Try making an argument and no just an enemy

To The Daily Sun,

In the Friday issue of this paper, Mr. Vervaeke berated Mr. Earle for using "pseudo facts" and stated, "You love your rhetoric, and I love my facts and data, and the two simply don't mix."

Mr. Vervarke then went on to say, "Violence by religion is the reason why we have a separation of church and state in this country."

I don't know if the school systems have rewritten history since I was a youngster, but a long, long time ago, we were taught that the First Amendment's words regarding freedom of religion were to ensure that there would not be any "state-run religion," as there was in England. That made sense because it matched up with the fact that the Pilgrims fled England, first to the Netherlands and then to America, because they didn't want to be forced to worship as Anglicans.

I would like to make a simple plea to those on the left and the right. Try making an argument and not an enemy. You don't have to besmirch another person's character because they don't agree with your opinion. Let the better argument win the day. Give civility a chance.

Can't bring myself to calling Hillary's supporters idiots, so I won't

To The Daily Sun,

This is in response to the Sept. 22 letter from Alan Vervaeke.

Beyond Hillary's health issues is all the graft, corruption, payola, political favoritism, Wall Street back door deals, the daughter placed in a "position." The Clintons stealing stuff from the White House, some of which was returned.

I am in awe with some of my friends that are okay with these two crooks. Hillary does a speaking engagement for thousands and it is nothing more than "transparency." Taking graft or payola right before our eyes, along with the donations from other countries to the Clinton Foundation, countries that surly expect a favor, aid or something in the future.

Alan Vervaeke, the Clintons are not a good choice for this country and neither is Donald. I cannot bring myself to calling Hillary supporters idiots. So I won't.
