To The Daily Sun,
Don't know about the rest of you letter writers but religion seems to be the main topic these days. Since Friday, Feb. 20, religion has been the main topic seven times from the usual political writers.
Local politics took up most of the other letters that week. Of those writers I include: Linda Wood, Siden, Cracraft, Earle, Veverka, Jim McCoole, McCoy and Ewing. Earle and Veverka have their own personal issues, but most attacks were towards Siden and Veverka. Other interesting, non-religion based, writers are Bernadette Loesch, Whitman, Michael Harris with some good ideas for thought, Linda Riley on taxes, Russ Wiles and G.W. Brooks on climate change.
Hopefully some form of fact checking took place before these were sent for publication. As for my opinion, I feel no letters — or more important, no TV-type ad — should be run until they are fact checked by a nonpartisan panel of some type. Especially before an election. This might be the only possible way of getting something truthful out to the voters. For those of you that don't think this is important just look or listen to those elected. That should convince you beyond all doubt.
We can't control the way they do the job, but at least we will know they have some information of the topics they will be considering. Most likely any of us could do just as well as they do now. We might vote out of order or not understand how to or when a filibuster is okay. It should be simple Yes or No / Pass or Fail easy right?
The only people who know this get elected but they still don't have a clue what the vote was all about.
