First, let me describe what I believe to be traditional or true political conservatism.  True political conservatism has five core principles: (1) Respect for the Constitution and its literal interpretation, (2) Limited federal government and respect for state’s rights, (3) Fiscal responsibility - low taxes, balanced budget, and low debt, (4)…

EDITORIAL - Primary choice won’t be easy, but voters know their ABCs (From the 9-27-15 Lapeer County Press)

In a race that contains a record number of candidates, voters have their work cut out for them in preparing for the Nov. 3 special primary election ballot for Lapeer County’s 82nd House District seat.

Eleven republicans and three democrats whose names will crowd that ballot are vying for Lapeer County voters’ attention. In truly American style, voters have a plethora of choices and we think that’s a good thing. Competition is healthy and, from our perspective, voters…

controversy surrounding the confederate flag: by Will

There has been a lot of recent controversy surrounding the confederate flag. We are in the process of removing it from all public display, use, sale, and possession.

I must point out that this fervent activity is about much more than removing this one symbol from public life. This is merely the opening pretext that will be used by radical historical revisionists for removing other symbols of our American history and culture.

There are now calls for the cleansing…

LAPEER COUNTY — For many people Memorial Day marks the beginning of summer. It’s a time to put the boat in the water, fire up the grill and have fun with the family.

There are those, however, who know what it really means. Originally established as Decoration Day, a day to decorate the graves of Civil War dead, it has evolved into Memorial…

PLEASE VOTE by Tim Lintz

PLEASE VOTE

The polls open on May 5th to vote on Proposal 1.  This proposal will determine if the sales tax is raised from 6 cents to 7 cents in Michigan.  If you think this will never pass, don’t count on it.  One of the problems is when people think like that and don’t bother to go to the polls to vote. Those in favor of it passing are counting on it!   The fewer people going to the polls may just pass this bill. 

There are so…

Proposal 1 Road Funding by Larry Leidline

My opinion on the Proposal 1 Road Funding is that it is not a road funding proposal and does not even meet the criteria as a well thought out proposal. It is up for vote because Lansing could not agree on funding and left it up to the voters. Further, it represents a failure of the Governor and Legislature to do the job they were elected to do. Only a slight majority of the $2 Billion it raises goes to road funding, parts of this proposal go to increased educational funding,…
