Trump may be crude, but he’s for America, first, last and always

To The Daily Sun,

I confess, I too am a deplorable, like Jim Mayotte of Sanbornton, because I will vote for Trump.

I am a deplorable because I worked all my adult life got and education, obeyed the laws, paid my taxes, got an honorable discharge from the Army, and believe the Constitution means what it says in spite of all those leftists lawyers trying to "reinterpret" its meaning.

Oh, the horror, I didn't vote for Obama, either time. So they call me a racist in spite of Obama's long long list of lies and failures to protect American people, failure to improve the lives of blacks and minorities, releasing hundreds of felony drug dealers from prisons to again prey on our young, and well, the list continues on and on. Doesn't matter that my judgment about him proved right, I'm still deplorable.

Not only am I deplorable I'm a recidivist deplorable. I will not vote for Hillary under any circumstances. Trump may be crude and rude but he is for America first last and always. I'll be labeled a chauvinist. I believe abortion on demand is a bad idea, so I'll be called anti-women in spite of loving the same woman for 48 years, having two daughters and four granddaughters.

I'm a deplorable because I fear attacks from Muslim terrorists who kill for the love of killing for their false god.

There is just no hope for me because I refuse to fall on my knees to the liberals' god of socialism which has never worked to raise people to higher standards of living or advanced human rights. I am deplorable.

OK, now that that's out of the way, just a note to the two Veverka/Vervaeke ideological twins. I just have to ask where do you two get off trying to smear and slander good people because they believe differently from you? You two are always trying to shut down opposing thoughts and speech because it doesn't line up with your leftist views.

Who are you to tell anyone they have no right to express their opinions whether it's on abortion, the Second Amendment, their free speech, religion or anything else. Who are you two to judge anyone else's ethics or moral standings? Why don't you try honestly debating ideas absent the name-calling, smears and slanders. Or is that beyond your capabilities?

Control of the Internet should remain in hands of the U.S., not U.N.

To The Daily Sun,

The First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution affords us more protection for free speech than anywhere else in the world. As long as the United States government has authority to oversee the infrastructure of the Internet it has a duty to ensure that no website is denied Internet access because of the ideas it espouses. Once our government relinquishes its control our First Amendment protections on the Internet go away. The First Amendment binds our government, not private individuals.

At stake is responsibility for an organization called the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This corporation oversees internet domain names, who gets them and what they consist of. After Sept. 30, if the U.N. assumes effective control over ICANN, it can use its position to ban pro-gun speech on the Internet or make other changes it sees fit to implement.

The transfer of control of the Internet to interests outside the U.S. imperils our right to free speech online. America's current Executive Branch of the federal government has moved to transfer of control of the Internet to interests outside America. A subcommittee of the Senate Judiciary Committee held a hearing on the matter Sept. 14. http://www.judiciary.senate.gov/meetings/protecting-internet-freedom-implications-of-ending-us-oversight-of-the-internet

It is time to stand tall for free speech. America should retain control of our communications so our rights will be protected. Please reach out to your elected representatives in the U.S. House and Senate. Let them know your position on free speech. Let them know you have strong feelings about giving away our sovereignty. You can reach out to them at:
