I would like to respond to "Limbaugh, propaganda machine" (letter, Oct. 26). Seriously, if the writer thinks Rush Limbaugh is a threat to our nation and our soldiers, he obviously isn’t listening that often.

Limbaugh supports our troops’ efforts 100 percent. If the writer thinks Limbaugh is a propagandist, what can he possibly think of Wolf Blitzer of CNN or Keith Olbermann of MSNBC?

Thank God for the First Amendment or we wouldn’t have the chance to conduct dialogue in a free nation, a nation where you can disagree even with someone as powerful as the president.

Many Americans want President Barack Obama’s policies to fail because we don’t agree with them. What I disagree with:

His stance on abortion.His Marxist ideals of redistributing wealth.Government taking over private business.His views on health care.His stated view that America is arrogant.His views on granting unrestricted amnesty to illegal aliens.His views on marriage and homosexuality.I, like Limbaugh, do hope that Obama’s vision of change for America fails. Disagreeing with the commander in chief doesn’t make one a traitor to his country. It simply means that we hold our ideals of a great America stronger than our blind support of a man with failed policies. Again, thank God for the First Amendment. May we be strong enough to preserve it.
