In a recent “town hall” meeting, Tom McClintock said the liberal left doesn’t want people using cars (Journal, Oct. 24). They want people to walk, bike, live close to where they work. I will never be considered “the liberal left,” but I walk to work every day — and for one big reason: America’s oil security. No matter how much we drill domestically, America can never be self-sufficient in petroleum — especially in McClintock’s SUV world. I choose to live close to work because I care about America. Congressman, I guess this means you are either lazy or a traitor to America. Which is it? Timm Smith, Roseville
