Dear Editor:

There has been a Republican administration in Washington D.C. for eight years and in that time we have experienced the fall of the Twin Towers (3,000-plus lives lost), the invasion of a country and ensuing war based on lies (with thousands of U.S. military deaths and injuries and 300,000 to 600,000 thousand Iraqi civilian deaths) with the added lack of ability to capture the instigator of the 9/11 tragedy, wiretapping of U.S. citizens, erosion of civil rights guaranteed by the Constitution, torture as U.S. policy, imprisoning people indefinitely, the abandonment of a major U.S. city to a hurricane (while the Bush and McCain actually ate cake), oil prices at an all time high and a major financial crisis starting in the home loan sector spreading to Wall Street and the world.

Now they want me to vote Republican because John McCain is going to change a system he has been an integral part of for the last 26 years? John McCain who has voted with G. W. Bush 90 percent of that time?

We would be financially, ethically, legally and morally bankrupt to choose poorly this November. We must have competence and honesty in Washington.

I am voting for Obama. Please join me.

Laura Van Dyne
