LETTER: Vote with your brain

I'm worried that, if John McCain becomes our next president, he will die in office (the odds are in the "Grim Reaper's" favor). Then what do we have in store for the remainder of this term? Instead of a moderate, capable maverick, we end up with a religious zealot. Her opinions are well known: create a constitutional amendment that abolishes abortion for any reason (even if you have to sacrifice the woman), a constitutional amendment to ban gay unions of any kind, require the schools to teach "intelligent design", and allow the environment to be decimated by hit-and-run drilling (even though we won't see any actual benefit for many years to come).

I'm worried that people will vote for a candidate on moral issues rather than on issues that affect our entire population, namely, universal health coverage, infrastructure repair and upkeep, job creation (not just minimum wage jobs), the economy, discrimination (race, gender, creed and sexual orientation), Social Security strengthening, tax system overhaul, getting out of Iraq and the Middle East, and global warming.

In November, please take your brain to the voting booth not your emotions (look what happened eight years ago).
