Commentary

Todd Lamb
Americans have a fundamental choice about our future. Do we continue along the path of increasing government intervention into our businesses and personal liberties, or do we reverse the course? Following are a few examples of places where Mitt Romney will take our nation in a different direction than the current administration. Through this broad range of issues, it is clear that Romney should be the choice for Oklahoma.

Kicking the crap out of Democrats


CFN

Gazette staff
So, the elections have mercifully come and gone, putting an end — at least for a while — to commercials of political candidates holding U.S. flags, kissing babies and laughing with confused elderly folks.

The land of Bibles and bigots


Commentary

Robin Meyers

Pulling up behind an enormous red pickup truck a few weeks before the election, I couldn’t help but notice a huge portrait of President Obama that covered most of the tailgate, and just beneath this unflattering image, in big block letters, was this question: “Does this ass make my truck look big?” Coming closer, I saw that the driver was a Marine, and these were his sentiments about his commander in chief.

Judicious info for voters


Letters to the Editor

Fred Morgan
Keith Rollin Eakins’ commentary (“Whither a Kardashians court?,” Nov. 14, Oklahoma Gazette) reduces the importance of an accountable judiciary to something approaching selecting the next American Idol. It is simplistic to throw pop culture platitudes at political discourse rather than discuss Oklahoma judicial history and the need for an informed electorate.

Misleading figures


Letters to the Editor

Jon Trushenski
Holding up California as an example of a failed state government is a mistake. Yes, there is outmigration from California, but their population density is still 241 people per square mile; Oklahoma’s is 55 So as bad as Mike Brake (Commentary, “Oklahoma’s postelection rise,” Nov. 21, Oklahoma Gazette) claims Californians have it, multitudes more are staying than are leaving. California private-sector employment has averaged over 20,000 new jobs per month since 2010; Oklahoma has managed about 3,000 per month over the same period. Californians voted to raise their own taxes this year, very likely for the same reason that MAPS was approved by the citizens of Oklahoma City three times — they were smart enough to recognize that the government needs to do some things that the private sector can’t or won’t do, especially in the area of social safety nets and quality-of-life improvements.
