Time to seek God

To the Editor:

This election cycle will determine whether America chooses to restore every citizen’s right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness or accelerates its spiral into tyranny and oppression. Let’s look at the choice regarding these rights.

The right to life: The unborn child is the most innocent and helpless member of the human race. Joe Biden and Kamala Harris have repeatedly demonstrated their support of the destruction of this tiny vulnerable living human being through their support of abortion. They go further and support legislation that would legalize third-trimester abortions and post-birth killing of a child that survives an abortion.

The right to liberty: The Biden/Harris ticket’s refusal to denounce the violence and destruction taking place in the streets of our cities, including Minneapolis, their attacks on our 2nd-Amendment rights, their calls to defund the police, and their support of the “cancel culture” speaks volumes.

The right to the pursuit of happiness: The founding fathers were referring to a person’s right to pursue the fulfillment of their God-ordained purpose. A vote for the Biden/Harris ticket is a vote against that right.

A vote for the Trump/Pence ticket will stop us, at least temporarily, from heading toward the abyss of tyranny and oppression. It will give us time to do what we need to do most: Repent and seek the Lord for His mercy.

“If my people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” (II Chronicles 7:14)

Support Loughmiller

To the Editor:

I am writing this letter in support of Joe Loughmiller for Fairmont City Council, Ward 2. I grew up in Fairmont and graduated from Fairmont High School in 2016. Joe played a significant role in my developmental years. Whether he was teaching Sunday school class or leading the scout troop, Joe was always a good leader and a good example for me. He encouraged me to get my Eagle Scout and was dedicated to helping me and other troop members achieve their goals. He supported and worked with us every step of the way. I have seen that Joe is committed to working hard in the service of others. One of the reasons I enjoyed being a part of the scouts and youth group was that Joe was willing to hear our opinions about activities and camping trips. He listened to our ideas and helped everyone have a meaningful and enjoyable experience. He is personable and on the city council, I know he will be open-minded in listening to what people have to say. You can count on Joe to be a trustworthy and dedicated member of the city council.
