Letter writer: Printing conservative voter guide was greedy, immoral

Ethan Wingfield: Conservative or fraud?
Twenty-six-year-old Ethan Wingfield is running for the GOP nod for the 11th Congressional District as a conservative businessman. Since he has not held office before, one can only judge the depth of Wingfield’s conservatism on his political activism as a young man in college. Unfortunately for Western North Carolina conservatives, Ethan’s record is one any […]
Raise a glass of Kool-Aid for our current City Council
Congratulations are due to Asheville’s liberal socialist progressives for their success in eliminating all meaningful diversity of thought from our City Council. Comfort is certainly preferable to the distress of exposure to multiple angles of view. Simplicity and a gentle buzz are assured by our city’s commitment to seven flavors of the same Kool-Aid.

A council of Mumpowers
I was thrilled to read that Carl Mumpower intends to endorse a liberal slate of candidates in the 2012 state and federal elections [“Mountain ‘X’ Should Change Its Name to Mountain ‘L,’” Oct. 12 Xpress].

So much for a feigned interest in diversity. Power has always been the left’s more authentic mission. […]
Services or taxes – which is it?
Jeff Gerber's July 20 letter, “Study Hard, N.C. Legislature,” perfectly illustrates the conservative mindset about government revenue and spending. He says, "making cuts to the law-enforcement and judicial system is ludicrous," and "conservatives never raise taxes.” Money doesn't grow on trees; it has to come from somewhere. In the case of government-provided services such as […]
Channel your inner American revolutionary
Anne Fitten Glenn argues the wrong point in her vaccination article [“Edgy Mama: Why Choosing not to Vaccinate Your Child is a Bad Idea,” Jan. 26 Xpress]. I was recently coerced into having my autistic 7-year-old daughter vaccinated for chickenpox because one of her classmates showed up at school with this dreadful disease. State law […]
