To the Editor: I don’t understand, if you have any concern for your country, why you would not vote, especially in the primary elections.
There is a significance in voting for your representation as it involves the ones who go to bat for you. I think that until recently, we have had a lot of incumbents up there who didn’t hear from their constituents and took advantage of that and did what comes natural….decided for themselves what’s best for you and me.
The communication between you and your representative is the key to making decisions on how we govern ourselves. If you have someone up there who truly represents you, that is, listens to you (his/her constituents) and portrays that to Congress, then they should vote the way you and I would vote on the issues, policies, laws etc. that affect our lives which ultimately becomes how big our government is and in this case, bigger is not better.
Usually the more legislation created (in either house) is too much and puts more on you and I in the way of taxes and threatens our individual freedom. In my opinion, that’s the last thing we need at this time with the economy holding us hostage.
So, if you are unhappy with your representation in government — local or not so local — register to vote, get informed, then go vote — not just in the general election, but all elections because it starts at the local level.
We have our work cut out for us, but with the right representatives working for us, we can get this country back on track.
Don’t complain if you don’t vote.
Open mic concerns
To the Editor: Progressives claim the Constitution, which requires that presidents be natural-born citizens, is outdated. They consider themselves to be citizens of the world whose loyalty is to global governance under the leadership of the UN. That means America's sovereignty must be forfeited to the Security Council which includes Russia and China who vote against us regularly. That would put us under the jurisdiction of the International Criminal Court and the Small Arms Treaty (no guns).
That is one reason we were horrified to hear on an open mic Obama quietly and furtively begging Putin for more time, after his re-election, to change NATO's missile defense system and reduce our nuclear weapons. Apparently Obama wanted to keep his plans secret from Congress and voters, just as he tried to do with the three islands he gave to Russia.
Why does Russia have such control over Obama? Why is he so certain he will be re-elected? Why has every judge been prevented from investigating the President's true identity and allegiance? Is it possible that the federal government (Congress, DOJ, Supreme Court, CIA, FBI, military, NSA, Homeland Security) and the media have been infiltrated so completely that the President has total authority and has threatened to destroy us all if challenged?

AirSho a delightful experience
My husband and I attended the Corsicana Airsho on Saturday, May 11. This was the first time for both of us to see the airsho. I would like to personally thank all those involved in truly making this a delightful experience. It was especially special because of my husband’s poor health.

Our rights in danger
To the Editor: In reference to the Corsicana Daily Sun article dated April 4, 2013, the president has already trampled on our First Amendment religious freedom, forcing people to pay for contraception and abortion — now he is tackling our Second Amendment rights. He uses children when politically expedient.
