Term limits idea

MOULTRIE — Dear editor:

The concept of term limits is imposed by honorable men — truly, “if Mr. Washington leaves the presidency as he has said, then he will have respect worldwide,” (British opinion 1789).

If Mr. Washington could see the problem with a lifetime of public service and Mr. Tom Jefferson had a similar vision of democracy gone awry, then why do we in the 21st Century adopt a do-nothing attitude toward limiting government service?

My pledge: I believe in honorable men. I also believe honorable men have the capacity of becoming dishonorable men. I am resolved this date to commit the balance of my life to affecting term limits.

With additional support from 10 percent of registered voters in a coalition statewide, term limits will result. Take the pledge today. My phone number is 229-891-3303.

Tom Rogers Sr.

Moultrie

Should abortion be legal for victims of rape?

No. That baby is alive, no matter how horrible its manner of conception.
Yes. It's wrong to force a woman to carry the child of her rapist.
Abortion is a private matter and should be legal for everyone.
