A most uncivil of times! Who wants to make America great again?

By Terry Toole

People, Miller County people are coming in asking me questions and my opinions about schools, taxes, elections and what's going on in our city, county, state and nation.

This is National Newspaper Week, and we are one of the older newspapers in the nation. Grandma Toole started the Miller County Liberal back January 1, 1897. That's 121 years ago, and a woman running a weekly newspaper before she could vote was unusual, you might say liberal.

I was born in 1935, that was over 82 years ago. I enjoy history, almost not anymore in our schools and colleges. I still love history. America is by and large a warring nation since it started in 1776. Out of 239 years, we have been at war for the past 222 years. That changes with dates.

The Civil War (War Against Aggression) killed more Americans than any other war. They were mostly all Americans killed. We didn't agree with our government back then either.

I wasn't here then, but I have studied a good bit about the Civil War. It was the states wanted to get out of the united part. The federal wasted too much power and didn't want the people to rule their lives. We are about as close to that today as we were back then.

Thank God, Hillary Clinton lost and Donald Trump won. The Democrats still can't believe she lost. They stole it fair and square, and Trump just won't quit winning.

Flash - Saturday, October 6, 2018. 50-48 was the official Senate count to name Justice Brett Kavanaugh the official new justice of the Supreme Court. The Democrats say it “ain't” over till the fat lady sings. I hope they are right.

The Republicans are in control, barely, of the presidency, the U.S. Senate, the U.S. House of Representative and the U.S. Justice Department. It is my hopes that the Republicans continue to get rid of the swamp creatures in Washington, D.C. by firing, removing, jailing and convicting those who have worked against the United States, beginning with those in the Obama Administration. A good start would be Obama, Hillary Clinton and all the underlings.

I agree that we need a wall to keep the illegals out of this nation, but I hope they will spend money first for prisoners of the state.

I'm not much on advice, but our president wrote and asked what I would suggest that he do to lead this nation. My only advice is and was to him: Never try to make a political friend out of a political enemy. It just doesn't work.

One of the most important elections of our time is coming up in just a few days. You the voters have the say of what and where our city, county, state and nation will be in the future. Only if you vote will you have a say in it.

We have some great leaders, and some that are not so great. Those in office are doing a good job turning our nation back to One Nation Under God.

If you see someone trying to get God out of lives and our nation, vote against them. They are working for the devil.

God bless you, and God bless America!
