Finally, a few of them stepped up and acted like Americans

This is a letter responding to “Senators could have stepped up, but backed down like cowards,” (April 25 Times-News).

The letter stated 92 percent of Americans and 74 percent of National Rifle Association members were ignored.

This was some more propaganda to try and sway other people to believe a majority was for the bill. This was far from the truth, but typical for truth smearing Democrats.

I am thrilled of the outcome, finally a few Democrats acted like Americans and I am proud of them. If only they had done some thinking on the stimulus package and Obamacare.

But, I will take a small victory for now and pray for more in the future.

The writer stated she was ashamed of Congress. I have been ashamed to be an American ever since the 2008 election and double ashamed since the 2012 election.

Maryland is in the toilet ( Liberal Democrat dominated) and America is closely following. Maryland is now the worst in the Union.

I was born and raised here and would love to leave, but go where, when the entire country is now being jerked around by liberal Democrats.

Look at the results of this year’s Maryland legislature: rain tax, raise gas tax, double the flush tax, in state tuition for illegals, licenses for illegals, gun control, early release of criminals and gay marriage.

Like I said, absolutely ashamed of this state. I plead with all Democrats and Republicans in Congress to oppose anything Obama and his group comes up with. We must fight to the very end.

  • If we don’t sell it to them, somebody else will

    The front page article on coal exports by AP writer Dina Cappiello is one of the most asinine and biased “news” articles I’ve read (“Not in my backyard: U.S. sending dirty coal abroad,” July 29 Times-News, Page 1A).

  • Not a villain Not a villain

    Time was that we looked for heroes. Heroes of the make-believe variety have sold a lot of comic books. We also had real-life heroes like Presidents Franklin D. Roosevelt and John F. Kennedy, whose deaths the whole nation mourned.
    These days, we seem to be more interested in looking for villains. “Vote for me because I’m the good guy” has taken a back seat to “Don’t vote for him, because he’s the bad guy.”
