Dear Editor: In a letter to the Editor this past Sunday, David Mikulec has tried the tired old argument that pro-lifers only care about life in the womb and not our children after they leave the womb. Referred to as the "Consistent Ethic of Life", we believe that human life is sacred under each and every circumstance and under all stages of development. People understand that we have to help the poor, victims of crime and war, etc. Even if we don't know their names or haven't seen the faces of these victims, we know it is our business to help them.

Dear Editor: I read that, suddenly, John Kerry is open to nominating anti-abortion judges to the Supreme Court as long as it doesn't lead to the overturning of 1973's Roe v. Wade. I smell a (lying) rat who is trying to get a few moderate votes, just as he does with his "personally opposed to abortion" baloney. Make no mistake, John Kerry and his voting record have made it clear that he is pro-abortion in its most zealous form. I think we all know now that he voted against the partial-birth abortion ban and the unborn victims of violence act (which he voted against to protect abortion rights)

Dear Editor: I fully agree with Wednesday's letter by Barney Tharp, which says John Kerry brought up his service in Vietnam and that by doing so, he opened up the festering, emotional, returning-home war wounds of his fellow military men. I personally want to know what Kerry has done while being a senator. Now, it's an increased division of this nation that I am seeing, hearing and reading about because he chose to use his military medals to try to convince me and other Americans that they are enough to make him a trusted president of the United States of America.

John Kerry and John Edwards will lead America to victory over observable realities seen starkly against the negative fantasy world we are enduring. They serve America by calling for change in the ruinous direction we are being mislead. Kerry and Edwards are people of heroic valor under deadly enemy fire. They courageously face the Republican attack machine that dishonorably trashes America's heroes to further their hateful agenda. Kerry and Edwards are visionary leaders confronting the lack of insight and foresight in our present deficient leadership.

Dear Editor: Recently, there have been several letters regarding whether or not God supports one political party. I find it odd that most of these letters come from people who seem to support John Kerry. From the thoughts of the writers of these letters one could surmise the authors are feeling guilty about their support of a candidate who supports abortion, gay rights, and many other things the Bible tells us are wrong. I am not going to tell you that God supports Bush or Kerry, Republicans or Democrats.

Dear Editor: A recent letter contended that the Bible has nothing to do with voting. To me, Scripture has everything to do with voting. Its ancient message mandates that we love God with all our hearts, souls, minds, and strength, and our neighbors as ourselves. It does not say, "except when you go into the voting booth. " Instead, it portrays the meaning of promise-keeping, the consequences of promise-breaking, and the holy transformation that happens when a merciful and gracious God keeps faith despite our arrogant rebellion.

Dear Editor: I remember the terrible drought of the 1930s that followed the 1929 stock market crash. I am finding it very difficult to believe these are hard times. New homes are being buillt all around us that are larger and better then before. My neighbors and I seem to have adequate medical care. Drugs are a problem for those who do not have drug coverage (we are among them). The new drugs that doctors recommend are usually very expensive, but the government has started a plan that appears to be helpful to low-income individuals and families and is designed to grow during the next few years.

Dear Editor: Anyone paying attention last week couldn't help but notice a chink in the armor of the Bush administration and the Republican elite. To me, it even sounds a little fishy. As in a fish "flip-flopping" when it's out of water. These people were so busy spending millions of dollars during the past weeks trying to paint a true hero, John Kerry, as a flip-flopper or even worse as undeserving of his medals, that they forgot George W. Bush is a simpleton, incapable of governing, or even winning his own declared "war on terrorism," which is being fought in the wrong place.

Dear Editor: I urge registered voters to exercise their constitutional right to vote on Tuesday. When you go to the polls, I ask that you consider the strong ticket of the Democratic Party, led by Senators John Kerry and John Edwards for president and vice president. Your support of these candidates for office will provide the necessary leadership for this country to address not only the issues facing us internationally in Iraq and other parts of the world, but also assure a sound economic policy domestically.
