And now LGBTQ rights.
My life has been touched by these issues and they matter.
My uncle and two of my kids happen to be gay. I love them with all my heart. There are those who wish to put them back in the closet and deny them the right to love one another. This is a denial of a fundamental human right. And for those of us who are Christian, this is a denial of our Lord's fundamental command that we love one another.
We are still a long way from gender equality: equal pay for equal work.
And the disparity in wealth between the super rich, the multi-national corporation and the rest of us is growing.
All these are matters of profound concern for those who value our basic freedoms.
YES! Votes matter.
This is why I personally endorse Barack Obama for President of the United States
