Sarah Palin & Michele Bachmann, stop twisting our Founding Fathers' "true beliefs"


Today's L.A. Times letters to the editor, Part One, because our voices matter:

Speaking of the Founding Fathers

Re "In the founders' words," Editorial, July 4

Wouldn't it be wonderful if celebrity right-wing Republican politicians such as former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann stopped giving their twisted and incorrect view of history and our Founding Fathers' true beliefs and learn what they actually wrote?

It makes the majority of us knowledgeable voters yearn for the days when we always tried to elect the best and the brightest.
