In a Post Independent column of Nov. 27, Kathleen Parker questioned the integrity, character and /or intelligence of all Republicans competing to run against Democrat Barack Hussein Obama in the 2012 presidential election.

She failed to mention that all of the people she disparaged would be an improvement over the immature community organizer and family now residing in the White House. None of the candidates cited by Parker support a socialist agenda or have the radical czars and associates of Obama.

We must elect a leader, not a wanna-be rock star international player who doesn’t stay in Washington, D.C., for the Congressional budget crisis and other critical governmental decisions.

In the Post Independent on Dec. 1, columnist Hal Sundin proposed abandoning our constitutional form of government for the old British parliamentary system. He thinks regression is better than reinforcing the present and hard-won system that is dedicated to individual rights.

What will these lefty rebel activists come up with next?

I would like to support Garfield County Commissioner John Martin’s position of not voting in favor of the proposed River’s Edge development project.

The protection of land between our communities is incredibly important in providing buffers of open space, so that the rural characteristics of the valley remain.

This ranch has gone through several years of turmoil, including demolition of historic buildings, removal of vegetation for wildlife, denial of river access and several renditions of bad planning.

Does the valley really need to have another 366-unit project sitting on the books for years, waiting to be developed when the economy improves?

The Garfield BOCC is meeting on Monday, Dec. 5, to review and possibly approve this development application. Please attend and show support for better planning for large scale developments.
