T. Shields: To answer some questions

  • Norman Smith’s letter of June 24 asked a number of questions when responding to my letter of June 19. My answers follow.

    I have noticed that Democrats have a different way of looking at thrift, logic and unprejudiced facts.

    I want to make it impossible for the fraudulent or unqualified to vote. Your candidate should not be defeated by such people. In Maine it is still too easy to slip past the current regulations. We need better proof of eligibility, and if this is an impediment to voting, it is only because you do not take elections seriously.

    Why should “independent” Angus King donate funds to any political party? However, he endorsed and contributed to Barack Obama and that ought to tell you something about this liberal spender.

    President Obama has shown that he is racist and inexperienced, among other unfavorable characteristics. Should state officials accept his nonsense?

    The United States government historically has functioned on a two-party system, with transient third parties appearing and disappearing. Other countries have multiple parties and usually need to form awkward coalitions to get anything done.

    FOX is the only TV network that is fair and balanced. I take it as a compliment that my questions reminded Smith of FOX. The other networks have a bias and listeners eventually consider that as balanced, thus making FOX look like a radical right wing organization.
