To the editor:
In answer to Mr. Ponikvar, I want to tell why I'm a Democrat.
We believe that prisoners of war should not be tortured. Our soldiers might become prisoners in another country, and we don't want them tortured. Besides that, it's immoral.
We believe the poor and middle class should get tax breaks, too - not just the rich.
We believe our government should abide by the laws that protect us - not conduct illegal wiretaps on its citizens or suspend the rights of habeas corpus and speedy trial.
We believe that everyone deserves access to good and affordable health care.
We also believe in all the good things John puts in his ad that are not exclusive to any one party.
