    Published: Tue, Feb 24, 2015

    Sometimes war is necessary Dr. Ben Carson's opinion (The Gazette, February 19) was right on target. As a veteran of the United States Air Force, it is refreshing to hear from a potential presidential candidate that actually "gets it" when it comes to waging war against an enemy. Our...

  • GUEST COLUMN: Rebranding: Positioning a conservative message for victory

    Robert Blaha
    Published: Mon, Feb 23, 2015

    The facts are in and they are not pleasant to acknowledge or accept. Surveys, interviews and demographic trends show that the conservative message is not resonating broadly to the degree necessary for victory. Numerous groups have defected or remain unmotivated by conservatism today....

  • ENDORSEMENT: John Suthers can make good city great

    The Gazette editorial
    Updated: Sun, Feb 22, 2015

    All four major candidates in the Colorado Springs mayoral election care deeply about this community. Each could probably carry out the task. In a field of strong candidates, one stands high above the rest. We are fortunate to have former Colorado Attorney General John Suthers asking...

  • EDITORIAL: Protect kids from pot-infused candy

    The Gazette editorial
    Updated: Thu, Feb 19, 2015

    It is heart-wrenching to visualize a toddler in the emergency room for mistaking marijuana food with an innocent helping of cinnamon bears. So we respectfully ask state Sen. Owen Hill to stop messing around with a popular law intended to protect children. He is better than this....

  • EDITORIAL: Keystone is latest battle in left's war on the poor

    The Gazette editorial
    Published: Wed, Feb 18, 2015

    President Barack Obama's looming veto of the Keystone XL Pipeline should become a pivotal moment in American politics. It should mark the day when left-wing politicians lose their reputation as defenders of the middle class and poor against the powerful and rich. If conservatives are...

    The Gazette editorial
    Published: Wed, Feb 18, 2015

    He's smart, articulate and by all appearances a loyal husband and father. Yet, President Barack Obama may rank among history's worst presidents. That's not our opinion. Rather, it is the finding of a survey by the Brookings Institution - a liberal-centrist organization ranked by the...

  • GUEST COLUMN: Regulate marijuana candy for the kids

    Gordon Klingenschmitt
    Updated: Tue, Feb 17, 2015

    As a newly sworn Republican state representative, I am surprised by strange alliances or conflicts on niche issues at the Capitol. Take the regulation of marijuana, for example. I didn't vote for Amendment 64, but it's in the State Constitution (for now), so I'll defend it until we...

  • LETTERS: Too reliant on Social Security

    Letters
    Published: Tue, Feb 17, 2015

    Too reliant on Social Security A recent writer claimed that his Social Security return is not an entitlement because he and his employers had "contributed for more than 45 years." I guess it boils down to whether you view your Social Security contributions as "prepaid retirement...
