Truly, Atlanta has become a city too busy to care.

Those sick of lies, corruption vote for Trump
On Nov. 5, a letter-writer said that the choice for your vote for President was “clearly a choice of going forward positively into the future with Hillary, or going backward negatively into the past with Trump” (“On Nov. 8, U.S. faces important decision,” Readers Write). I beg to differ. It’s a choice between continuing the same old insider politics of the last 28 years, or of throwing the insiders out and doing what’s best for the U.S. If you like the economy, foreign policy and domestic tranquility we have had under this administration, then vote for Hillary. If you are sick of the lies, corruption, cronyism, social strife, and international humiliation, then vote for Trump. As many have said, “Doing the same thing over and over again, and expecting a different result is the very definition of insanity.”

Entitlements ruining the U.S.
I am one of the deplorables. I am a senior citizen with children and grandchildren. I have worked hard all of life, sent my kids to college and have never drawn welfare. I have a question. How can this country survive? Under President Obama, the national debt now exceeds $20 trillion. It has been reported that we can barely afford to pay the interest on this debt. Democrats, and in particular the democratic candidate, want to increase entitlements with no good way to pay for them. Their answer is to tax the rich! What a joke. Entitlements in general have ruined this country. A long list of “free things” begets votes — then empty promises. Wake up America. Start using some common sense. Nothing is free! You are being had.
