A recent article by John Welch ("Trust and accountability still heart of U.S. politics," Oct. 24) was brilliant, insightful and the kind of information we need during this election season. We need leaders who have real values and who realize that they will someday be held accountable for their actions and decisions.
This article really resonated with me because as an American citizen I have grown very tired of my trust in our government and leaders being continually violated. I feel violated every time I hear about the many scandals using our taxpayer dollars to fund private enterprises, such as the Solyndra company and many other "renewable" energy type companies that also have gone bankrupt after losing hundreds of millions of dollars in taxpayer money.
Was not everything in the history of this country that was truly worthwhile and affordable, as well as accepted in the marketplace, developed or invented in the private sector?
It is time for a change. So please let's all of us vote for those candidates at every level who exhibit at least some form of integrity, trust and accountability.
