To the Editor:
RE: Reader asks why Right not interested in learning the truth about Jan. 6 attack (Letters, Dec. 26 KDH).
The writer makes some assumptions about the motives of the “Right”. The biggest assumption is that we on the “Right” do not want to know the truth about the Jan. 6 insurrection. I for one would like to know the truth — not the truth of the “Left” or the truth of the “Right” but the truth. I think that many on both the “Left” and “Right” want to know the unfiltered truth.
My truth is that the politicized investigation by the Democratic House and one RHINO Republican is nothing more or less than a witch-hunt. The writer has the unmitigated gall to invoke the also much politicized investigation into the Benghazi attacks.
In the case of the Benghazi “investigation”, the goal was to clear the Secretary of State for doing little to assist her ambassador and his people and being at the very least a contributor to their deaths. The writer might want to find a less controversial example.
The writer also makes the assumption that the sitting president fomented the insurrection. I am very sure that once the TRUTH comes out, that we will find that many who led the insurrection had a plan and the things on hand to make the assault on the Capitol happen. Was the president was the catalyst? Maybe. However, a good deal of planning by others made it happen.
As for the end of democracy, I think that many on the “Right” are very worried about the direction of this country. From the “Squad” that is working very hard to make America a socialist state. To the president who has caused by his actions prices for fuels to nearly double. To the “Left” wanting to make voter fraud much easier and much more prevalent. Do I worry about what America is becoming? Yes, I most certainly am.
What is the America I want to see? An America that rewards hard work. An America that does not demand the deaths of millions of unborn children. An America that teaches children how to survive in the adult world — not to hate the person next to them. An America that places worth on the knowledge, gained over decades, of Senior Citizens. An America that does not reward people for not working or for having more and more children that the parents cannot take care of.
It is very hard for me to understand the counter arguments to the America I want. America was built on hard work. America was built on family. America was built on God — in whatever form a person chooses to find him or her. These things are possible again. “Right” and “Left”, have to find ways to work together toward a better America. Not “Left” America or “Right” America but AMERICA.
Lastly, the United Stated is not a democracy. In the Pledge of Allegiance or the Constitution of any other of the founding documents is the United States ever called a democracy? No, it is not. The United States is a Representative Republic. We elect representatives and they make the laws for the republic.
