The right to vote

October 18, 2012
The Daily News


I am a Christian. From my earliest memories, I have been a Christian. Why do I feel it is necessary to proclaim this in a public forum? Because I am also a Democrat.

I want to assure folks that, contrary to what some people are saying, these two beliefs are not mutually exclusive. In this great country, there are choices we can make. That sets us apart from a great many other nations. I would never presume to denigrate an opinion different than my own, and I certainly would not lump all Republicans together in one big bundle.

Nor do I believe all Democrats share precisely identical views. Bear in mind that each of us has the right to vote. That will make our voices heard far more effectively than petty bickering.
