Kerry/Edwards better choice for nation

Aspen Times writer

Dear Editor:When deciding whom to support for president, I review a list of the 12 issues that most concern me and which will be influenced by who is elected. Your list may have more or fewer items, but here is mine:Supreme Court appointments; the environment; national defense; foreign affairs; abortion; affirmative action; capital punishment; civil liberties and civil rights; separation of church and state; gay rights; the economy; gun control.None of these issues will directly influence my self-interests, other than creating a healthy economy, but I do believe that in voting for the Kerry/Edwards ticket, all of these concerns will be handled in a manner that serves the best interests of our country.I also know that many local business people refrain from making their opinions known, as they have a right to, because their choice made public might impact their business. This year’s election is too important to keep one’s silence. I hope you will choose to join in the dialogue.Phil MillerAspen
