GOP Accused Of Sign Stealing
To the Editor:
State Representative Alex Charlton ( 165-Rep ) wrote in his Facebook page on October 12 that he was “incredibly disappointed with the level of discord in politics… and that individuals need to start calling out bad behavior within their own ranks”. Most decent people would agree with him on this. The former Springfield GOP chairman, Charlie Sexton and current Springfield Commissioner Robert Layden were seen outside a Democratic rally at the Radnor Hotel handing out phony $10,000 Bills that had Jennifer O’Mara’s photo on the bills. Jenn is the Democratic candidate running for the same State Representative seat. On the Bills were the words: In Socialism We Trust. And two weeks ago, I was told that security cameras from a private home, show a Springfield Township employee coming out of Township vehicle and stealing a Jenn O’Mara lawn sign. The police are currently investigating that incident. So why hasn’t State Rep Alex Charlton practicing what he preaches ? Isn’t his word any good ? Can we trust Charlton to call out these gutter political practices from the same political party that recruited him and finances his campaign ? To all good voters in Delaware County, aren’t you tired of gutter politics ? This year you can vote for a fine young woman who has the qualities to be an outstanding legislator. If you’re tired of the “good ol’ boys” then join me in voting for Jenn O’Mara for State Representative.

America Finally Gets Left Which Is Why Left Lost
By George Coyne
It’s been nine months since the election and the Left seems to still not understand why they lost to Donald Trump (the lead deplorable). Actually only about half of the Left do not understand it. The rest do understand it, but can’t admit it, since that admission would contribute greatly to irreparable damage to their philosophy and agenda. So they have searched desperately for some excuse outside of the emptiness of their campaign, which pathetically promised more of the same approach of the last eight years.
First it was FBI Director Comey, who was forced to publicly disclose the criminal compromise of classified information by Clinton and her personal server, which was not under government supervision. Then it was the Russians “hacking” the election. The implication was that somehow the Russians interfered with the voting process. There has been no evidence provided that this occurred after six months and assuredly, if such evidence existed, it would have been broadcast by now. The latest reason recently provided by Clinton was misogyny.
The real reason that Clinton lost was that the American people finally began to understand the MO of the progressive Left and its relentless “progress” to socialism and the overwhelming power and control of the federal government at the expense of individual liberty. Look no further than the degree of support for avowed socialist Bernie Sanders, who may actually have gotten the Democrat nomination without the interference of the Clinton team. People began to understand the poison of “identity” politics that had been perfected under Obama, in which ethnic, racial and social groups were pitted against each other to gain government favor. Individual freedom and rights were being submerged in the process. Also look no further than the unconstrained power and growth of unelected bureaucratic (and politicized) agencies such as the IRS, EPA, DOE, CPA and SEC.
Significantly more citizens, within every artificial “identity group,” understood this long-term trend better today than they did eight years ago and realized that they again wanted to be proud of America and its values.

Vote Female (Or You Are Insecure)
To the Editor
On the ballot Nov. 8th throughout Delaware county, five females are running for State Representative, a female is running for President, a female is running for US Senate and one is running for Congress. That’s incredible ! What progress, right ? Maybe progress in Pennsylvania but we are still way behind. There is a higher percentage of female lawmakers in Afghanistan than there are in Pennsylvania. There are more than 75 countries that have a higher percentage of female lawmakers than the US. Why is that ? Is it because many American men fear voting for strong females ? When I hear all the comments or read all the e/mails from men about females running for public office, I realize how insecure these guys are with females who are strong and assertive. I personally believe we need more women in government. After all females compromise of more than 50% of our population. Most females can multi-task, get things done and still be great wives and mothers. I reject all the male-chauvinistic statements and e/mail chain-letters about how weak females will be if elected to public office. So to my male friends, if you ever loved a mom, a wife, a sister or a daughter, try to be patient and don’t be afraid to support females that are running for office. I strongly believe if we had more women in government, maybe we would have political harmony in our Country and less wars throughout the world. Relax guys, its their time now.

Declare Trump Support GOP — Letter To Editor
The voters in Delaware County need to know where do all of the local Republican candidates stand with their Presidential nominee, Donald Trump. With all of the publicity coming out of the Trump campaign, the voters and the Press should know if the local Republican politicians support their presidential candidate.
Recently about 100 key national republican leaders from Congress, to Governors, to former Bush national security advisers have withdrew their support of Donald Trump. So I am asking the Press and all of the good Republican voters of Delaware County to demand from your candidates now, whether they will support Trump or not. The voters need to ask Congressman Pat Meehan, all of the state office candidates and even their county, township and borough’s republican elected representatives, if they will support Trump for President in November.
I challenge all of the Republican elected candidates and the current office-holders, whether they are running for office this year or not, to take a stand, be honest with everyone and tell the people of Delaware County if they believe in Donald Trump.
