May the Better Liar Win...
- By J.C. Worthington - Taylors, SC
This has been submitted too late to be considered for the primary elections scheduled yesterday, June 12th. Perhaps it can be remembered for the November elections, (although the primaries, where distinctions are more important within parties where the closest positions are delineated would have been better) and for the expected run-off elections to be held Tuesday, June 26th.
In an article in zerohedge.com by Tyler Durden covering author Eric Zuesse via The Strategic Culture Foundation, it is stated that What killed democracy (sic) was constant lying to the public, by politicians whose only way to win... office is to represent the interests of the super-rich at the same time as the given politician promises to represent the interests of the public -- and may the better liar win! -- it’s a lying contest.

Thank God For Donald Trump
- By Dennis E. Neves - Greenville, SC
Thank God for Donald Trump. I know that he is not perfect, but neither was King David. But both were, I believe, chosen by God to lead their respective nations at the appointed time in human history.
President Donal Trump has done more to bring God to the “Public Square” than any President that we have had since Ronald Reagan.

4th District Primary: Common Sense, Freedom, and Emotions
- By Jim Gaston - Greenville, SC
The people of the Upstate are overdue for a principled constitutionalist to represent them in WashDC. While former reps. might have been considered “conservative,” the 4th District does not need a smooth talker to simply hold the title and vote with the GOP establishment. In the crowded field of candidates for the upcoming primary, there are only 2 guys that have put principles and freedom ahead of party. Lee Bright and Stephen Brown have proven they will be committed to opposing the swamp and upholding the Constitution even when it is unpopular. In the event of an emotional crisis such as an economic calamity or gun legislation, we need someone who will not cave to pressure.

Support for Bobby Cox - SC House District 21
- By Dianne Mitchell - Greenville, SC
It is primary time for voters and no matter which party you support, it means that people with whom you largely agree are running against one another. Making a choice between them is more difficult and it can get personal if you are acquainted with them. But the comparison must be done so may the best candidate win and no hard feelings, please.
The race I would like to discuss is for State House District 21 currently held by Phyllis Henderson. Phyllis has spent time on education and the opioid epidemic. These are important issues and her work has made some progress for improvement. But is it enough? I think not. This work can be continued by someone else who more closely aligns with the voters in District 21.

I didn’t actually see this happen. It took place several months or years before I got there, but the students and faculty were still talking about it. A boy named Bobby walked into Professor Candy’s Psychology class shortly after it began that day. “Ah, there you are! I thought I could find you here,” he shouted. “You gave me an ‘F’ on my term paper! Well, revenge is so sweet! You will never give me another ‘F.’” Bobby pulled out a gun and shot Professor Candy twice. Meantime the professor had reached into a drawer of his desk and pulled out a gun and shot Bobby three times. Both men collapsed and sprawled on the floor. Five men opened the door and came in. Four of them carried off the bodies. The fifth was one of the other Psychology professors, and he took over the class. Up to this point in time the stunned students did not know that both guns were loaded with blanks. It was all a theatrical performance.
