The Daily Advance should let us readers know just why the owners/management of the paper lean so much to the left, which is contrary to what the voters are for. What have the owners to gain?

Read the history of socialism and you'll learn that in most cases it leads to dictatorship. And you must know the first thing dictators do when they come to power: They kill off the owners of radio, TV, and print media before going on to the military, and then to the educators.

Let's face the fact that the Democratic Party of days of old does not exist any longer. Are there any so-called Democrats proud of the sleazy way the woman acted when she tore up a copy of a legal document, an action for which she should be arrested? I am referring to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-California, who displayed hatred we shall not tolerate.

Looking back, Harry Truman would be the only Democrat I'd vote for. I remember the picture of Harry holding up a copy of the Chicago Daily Tribune the morning after his election on Nov. 2, 1948, which read, "Dewey Defeats Truman." The publishers of the paper were so confident Dewey would win they published the morning paper early and committed a boo-boo.

Ole Harry won and the rest is history. By the way, it is reported an original copy of that issue is now valued at about $1,000.
