Leadership must be accountable


To the editor:


I am so grateful for the forum we have in America to express our views. I read with interest Mr. Vokac's letter to the editor that was published in the Daily Quill July 2, 2022. I believe Mr. Vokac's views deserve to be discussed and challenged. 

First of all I, agree no one should be classified as a non-Christian on the basis of their party affliation. When we vote, most people I would think, try to carefully evaluate the issues and vote according to the dictates of their conscience. It's almost impossible to agree 100% with any political party or candidate. 

So we choose to the best of our ability between "the lesser of two evils." As I've stated in earlier letters, some people will say anything to get elected. 

The current Congressional Committee concerning the events that happened on Jan. 6, 2021, is a circus. The information of so called "facts" is so one-sided. This committee is purely political and its relevance should be questioned. The committee is not concerned about arriving at any sort of truth as to what happened on Jan. 6. The committee is clearly trying to drum up support for the failed Democratic party. Democrats are not interested in saving democracy. They are working feverishly to destroy it.

Our current president has done nothing but make the lives of most Americans more difficult. A report from the Daily Mail (Ed. Note: published in Britain) dated July 5, 2022, states that Biden not only authorized 1 million barrels of oil from the U.S. Strategic Reserve, but he also sent 5 million barrels out of our reserves to Europe and Asia. When people in this country are hurting from high gas prices in this country, this is what a compassionate leader does?? Ships 5 million barrels of oil out of his own country? 

This is not compassionate leadership. Where is the concerned congressman that is supposed to be looking out for the interests of the American people? 

It's time we call the Congress of the United States into accountability. The Congress has stood back and allowed executive orders to stand. 

I feel no sympathy for President Biden. He is a portrait of a failed and weak leader. If the the president's party is allowed to continue unchecked, brace yourselves for harder and more painful days.
