Staying true to their party: All these bigwig Republicans who say they won't support Donald Trump will have two choices when they walk into the voting booth next month. They can vote for Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump. You know as well as I do that they will vote for the one who halfway represents their party. They will pull the lever for Trump. All this hogwash is just political nonsense. They don't want anyone to think they will vote for Trump, but they will. The only alternative is to vote for her.
Quit name calling: Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump need to stop calling each other names. They need to get on with their work and tell us what they're going to do for this country. Quit picking on each other.
Leery of list: I see one of our letter writers wants to vote for Donald Trump because he published a list of candidates for the Supreme Court. What makes you think he will actually use that list? He has lied about everything else. This will be no different.
Stumping for Trump: Now I see we have fortune tellers calling in to Speak Out. These are people who know exactly what Donald Trump will do if he's the president. He'll start a nuclear war. Oh please. Trump will have the best cabinet of experienced men and women who will be level-headed like Mike Pence. They will keep us out of war. You should worry about Hillary Clinton. She was for the Iraq War. We see the results of those decisions now.
Fame game: Donald Trump said he has the greatest respect for women, but he obviously doesn't know the meaning of respect. He has it confused with sexual attraction. He is someone we cannot allow to be the president. He said he can do anything to women because he is famous. What is he famous for? He cheated his workers out of their earnings, and he cheated the government out of taxes. He thinks he is famous because of his ridiculous television reality show. He won't get away with it. He'll find out on November 8 that he is fired.
Short versus long: This is my third attempt to get in Speak Out. I'm 94 years old. I do my own housework and shopping. I'm a volunteer at the hospital. I don't like the new, long paper. I would like it to be like the Living and Home sections. It would be better for people on trains and buses.

Relax Speak Out: Republicans saying they won't vote for Trump is 'hogwash' stories
Remark about parking fees: I'm reading about the school parking problem at Elgin High School. Is it right that the students have to pay $100 to park their cars in the parking lot? Geez, I graduated from Barrington High School in the 1960s. We didn't have to pay to park in the school parking lot. In
Fair fight: I know Hillary Clinton lied about her emails, but hasn't everyone told a lie in their life? Anyone who says they never told a lie is a big liar. She's not really a bad person, but the lies about these emails make her look that way. Hillary has been criticized a whole lot. More than 70
Standing argument: This is for the football player who won't stand up for the national anthem. There is no law that says you have to stand. I respect the man for that. When you go to court, you are supposed to rise and stand for the judge. I don't feel I have to stand up for a judge. Is there a law?
Here is one thing that the public doesn't know really and can't get straightened out. Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump is asking the Clintons, "Let me see this." But when it comes to something really simple, how come he doesn't say, "I'm going to show you my income
Unlikable candidates: I think it's good that we have been given the chance to see two of the most unlikable people running for president. What we are seeing are things we need to get rid of, racism and bigotry. This election is showing how racially divided this country is. We are all Americans,
Irate about low interest rates: I and so many other seniors think it's really wrong the way the Federal Reserve keeps the interest rates so low. Not only do seniors and others make a ridiculously low rate of interest on their savings, we don't get a raise in Social Security either. Now
Use your muscles instead of your mouth: I think that people should get together in their communities and help their communities by themselves instead of giving lip service and expecting the government to help. Hard work and determination is what brings people together. Nobody is proactive in our
Cheering on the Cubs : I was reading the Speak Out caller's prediction that the Cubs are going to win. I agree that they are going to win and go to the World Series. The Cubs are doing better this year than the last two years. I believe 100 percent that they are going to the World Series.
Maintain the tax freeze: Politicians are not the best presidents:
Worry about yourself: For some reason, a lot of people out there are worried about what other people are doing, what they own and how they got it. They are worried about men marrying men and women marrying women. They are saying this is against God. Have you looked in the mirror lately? You never
