Saw the Signs
The letter “A Moot Point” (Oct. 26) challenged Kathleen Oleson to prove that there were any signs on Midland/Morganton. I am the proof. I saw them.
I drive Morganton twice a day during the week. I found it puzzling that the signs kept disappearing. I cannot tell you who took them but they were there. The letter implies that Ms. Oleson “alleges a criminal act by the taking of the signs.” I do not allege it, I state it.
During the election process, the only person who may move a sign is the one who legally placed it. Anything else violates a number of laws, including the right to free speech.
I am a former Republican, now an independent. I left the party a few years ago as I found the integrity of the politicians that represent it less than stellar. I cannot back a party so paranoid about being in control that, rather than telling me why to vote for them, it has to tell me why I should not vote for the other guy.
I am not necessarily backing Obama, though. My choice will be up to me, and I will cast my vote as is my right and every voter’s right.
None of us has to stand for violation of our rights by bullies such as these sign stealers.
