Request Absentee Ballot

Dear Editor,

Just when one might think that Donald Trump’s behavior can’t get worse, it does.  Now the president and some of his Republican cohorts are undermining and weakening the US Postal Service with the goal of causing late delivery of absentee ballots to boards of election so that they can’t be counted.  To this end, Trump has ordered the postmaster general to have mail sorting machines removed and discarded.  Postal workers have reported that they have seen them thrown into dumpsters; and photos confirm that mail drop boxes in several states are being unbolted and trucked away.  Further, the president is blocking needed funding for the Postal Service to stay in operation.  All this because he’s desperate to be reelected and is trailing Joe Biden significantly in recent polling.

What can be done to insure a fair election with all mail in votes counted?

  • Request an Absentee Ballot Request form to be mailed to you by calling the Guilford County Board of Elections at (336) 641-3836; or you can download the form from their website.  It’s urgent that this been done sooner than later, since the Board of Elections will begin mailing out ballots on Sept. 4.  (No excuse is needed to vote absentee.)
  • Once you receive the ballot, complete and return it well before the Nov. 3 election to insure that it will be counted.  (The signature of one witness is required.)
  • Be an informed voter by visiting the League of Women Voters’ website ( for non-partisan information on candidates.

This election will determine the future of our country for years to come.  Voting is a must.

We The People Are Standing Up

Dear Editor,

We, the people on the right, the conservatives, and the believers in the republic/democratic/constitutional form of government, people who stand for the United States of America with and without its faults are finally starting to stand up against the dark forces, both inside and outside of government on every level. We are starting to see people actually act on that great line from the movie “Network,” where the character Howard Beale yells, “I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take this anymore!”

The spineless mayor of New York City announced the Tribute in Light commemorating the fall of the Twin Towers on 9/11 would not happen using the COVID-19 boogeyman as his whiny excuse after also cancelling the reading of names of those killed. But ordinary citizens, true Americans, stepped in and took over in order to make it happen, basically telling the (National Socialist) Democrat lackeys to stick it where the sun won’t shine.

A group of ordinary citizens stood up against an Antifa mob that tried to “peacefully” invade the community where the Seattle police chief lived in order to “peacefully protest” in front of her house. These modern Minutemen blocked the road, armed, and demonstrating safe, proper handling of a firearm, but prepared if the anarchists wanted to escalate. It was a Lexington Green moment. They were prepared to defend their friends, their neighbors and their property against unwelcome invaders. And the best part? The high sheriff was there standing beside them.

An Antifa gang of cowardly criminals assaulted a man in a wheelchair at a support the police rally and were given a beat down and then arrested when police arrived.

Am I advocating for vigilantism? No … at least not right now. There would have to be a complete breakdown (read defunding of law enforcement) before I would go that far. But that is not to say I wouldn’t under the right circumstances.

The one bit of advice I would give those that stand up to the (National Socialist) Democrat party sponsored domestic terrorists: Play their game. Video everything from start to finish. If possible get more than one person that is dedicated to nothing but recording everything. Play by their rules. Use their tactics against them. The MSM may control most of the media, but they cannot stop the internet.

The republic will not fall.
