Leave politics out; listen to majority

The misguided propaganda machine that is the liberal left’s agenda again rears its ugly head, this time in the form of Monday’s rant against Attorney General Rob McKenna. (Letter, “Philosophy can be taken to extreme”).

The writer attempts to take McKenna to task for not suing the auto insurance companies because car insurance is mandatory here in this state. Here’s a news flash: The law mandating car insurance is done on the state level, and not the federal level. Get your facts straight next time, and leave politics out of it.

This debate should not be about politics. It should be about what is best for the people of this nation, and making it mandatory on a federal level to buy something is not a free democracy — it makes it a totalitarian “do what I tell you to do, or else” dictatorship.

Over half of the people of this state and over two-thirds of the people of this nation did not want Congress to enact this health care “reform,” but they did anyway. I ask you, is that representation of the will of We The People? I think not.
