Fear Their Vision | Letters to the Editor | Bend | The Source Weekly - Bend, Oregon

Coverage for Central Oregon, by Central Oregonians.
100% Local. No Paywalls.

Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

Fear Their Vision

Protesting The Bulletin's GOP Nominee.



Writing to encourage Central Oregon citizens, especially women and feminist men, to protest The (Bend) Bulletin’s support of the GOP Nominee for President, M. Romney. The GOP has taken women’s status to 1950 conditions [by] removing or limiting abortion rights state by state, removing support for Planned Parenthood, women’s health, and children’s health services. The Bulletin’s flagrant support of the GOP, via Romney is a clear indicator of their vision of the future.

Additionally, Romney has clearly stated in recent press releases he wants to expand the military.  Since drone attacks are already killing thousands of civilians in Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, and Yemen, one can only wonder what other nation the GOP wants to bomb nightly in your name.

Lastly, please write-in the other GOP candidate, R.Paul, as Obam-ney is not the way to a more equitable world.
