To The Daily Sun,
In response to Alan Vervaeke's response to my April 5 letter. First off I want to apologize to my readers for my gaff that left me open to Mr. Vervaeke's charge of not knowing how our government works. Secondly, I want to thank the editorial staff at The Sun for correcting my gaff in their title for my letter. I don't think anyone who reads my letters on a regular bases would charge me with with not knowing how our government works. I do my best to stay knowledgeable and informed and try to limit my writing to things I know something about.
I am also quite a student of history. To be charged with not understanding how our government works by someone who does not understand the relationship between morality and the success of a democratic republic, that has been understood from antiquity is a bit much for me.
Alan's suggested banishment of my letters to Rhe Weirs Times, which is by the way a pretty good little newspaper, puts the shoe on right foot, on who is in favor of free speech and who is not, as liberal writers have tried to claim conservative writers have been trying to stifle free speech. It is really the other way around.
One closing thought: Are not our senators morally bound by their oath to support the Constitution, to see that justices who believe in the Constitution and will base their decisions on it and not some other philosophy or source are appointed to our federal courts?
