The communist motto “Forward” that resonated with so many ignorant Americans will plunge us into many years of darkness from which we will never be able to recover.

Republicans think impeachment is a remedy for their failures in our democratic system. Duly elected is duly elected, so get over it. If you don’t like democracy, maybe America is not for you.

Democrats are so empathetic they are telling Republicans what to do to win elections, as if Democrats are giving Republicans some secret for defeating themselves.

I remember a few famous and not so famous Democrats threatening to leave this country if George W. Bush was re-elected. They never moved. Selective memory is a funny thing, isn’t it?

Four more years of fighting. When will it end? When you lose, you do it in a way that is good for the people. You do not bad-mouth the winning party.

The rational, commonsense people of our country made a choice. The Obama haters need to quit crying in their beers and just get over it.

To all you people who tell me to stop whining because Mitt Romney lost the election: I’ll stop whining when you stop crowing.

I am proud to have voted for a presidential candidate such as Romney who is a man of integrity and truth, rather than for a president who is always promoting himself and avoiding the truth about his actions, such as on Benghazi.

Will you people just give it a break? The election is over. Get outside and enjoy the fall weather. Do something. There is a life outside of politics.

Nothing says Thanksgiving in Wichita like turkey, liquor and a passive-aggressive mother-in-law.

I watched “The Dust Bowl” on PBS. Anyone who thinks we have it really hard now needs to recalibrate.

A huge “thank you” to Bill Warren and the staff at his west-side theater. I took my niece to the sensory-friendly showing of “Wreck-It Ralph,” and she had a blast. Best of all was seeing all the smiles on the faces of both parents and children. I hope this tradition continues.

David P. Rundle listed several people who have been leaders in the disability-rights movement in his commentary (Nov. 20 Opinion). He left out one of the most impressive leaders: David P. Rundle. Thank you, David.
