Someone is tearing down campaign signs
As an American I have the right to support the candidate of my choice. I can’t imagine going into people’s yards to steal, tear up or just pull up their signs.
I have picked up my signs supporting my candidate for president, Mitt Romney, on six different occasions. They were probably torn down by some Obama fanatics who disagreed with my choice.
The last sign (which I had spent a lot of time and effort making) was stolen. I even had a Romney bumper sticker pulled off my car window.
What has happened to mutual respect and common decency? I am greatly disturbed by the lack of tolerance and the deep split that seems to be dividing our country. “Obamanites” seem to preach tolerance only when that want to be tolerated.
With this kind of behavior happening before the election, I shudder to think what is going to happen when Obama loses in November.
This is not a black versus white issue in terms of skin color; it is black versus white in terms of what is right and what is wrong in regard to respecting personal property.
Did values go out the door when the government threw out God? People are constantly saying, “God Bless America.” God HAS certainly blessed our great country. It is time for us to turn it around to AMERICA BLESS GOD by showing respect for each other and living by the values on which America was founded.
The formula for healing our land can be found in 2 Chronicles 7:14, “If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”

McCrory has shown he has what state needs
I am worried about the high unemployment rate of 9.7 percent and the economic mess North Carolina has found itself in. North Carolina needs a governor who will lead us in a positive direction and help dig us out of the hole in which the state is stuck. The man who has proven time and again during this campaign to have the ability and strength to do so is Pat McCrory.
Pat McCrory has shown North Carolinians a refreshing outlook and positive explanation of his policies and plans. He has led his campaign the way all politicians should, respectfully with poise.
Walter Dalton has shown citizens the desperate and panicked side of a campaign, bringing politics in North Carolina to a new low.
Rather than devoting his campaign and advertisements to positively displaying his policies and attributes, Walter Dalton has spent his time negatively and falsely attacking his opponent.
I, as a citizen and voter of North Carolina, am so tired of seeing campaigns devoted to fighting the opponent rather than fighting for the good of the state. North Carolina needs someone who puts the needs of the state and the people above their own and that is what Pat McCrory has shown throughout the campaign.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
Roger B. Watson-Smyth,
Stanley
