Vote for val­ues

The Washington Times Daily - - EDITORIAL -

I once had an as­sign­ment with the United Na­tions in which I worked in Egypt with of­fi­cers from the Soviet Union and other na­tions. This was dur­ing the Cold War years, with Leonid Brezh­nev in power. As a young U.S. Navy lieu­tenant, the job was ex­cit­ing in cer­tain ways. I learned dif­fer­ent things through the re­la­tion­ships I made, but some things stayed with me for life. One has been that peo­ple, no mat­ter where they’re from, all have the same ba­sic needs. All have the need for sus­te­nance, fam­ily and shel­ter. All seek to be con­tent. All feel emo­tions, both good and bad. All de­sire to live life to best of their abil­ity. The rep­re­sen­ta­tives from the Soviet Union, along with the other na­tions, were peo­ple with the same ba­sic needs as us Amer­i­cans.

In Amer­ica, peo­ple want good jobs, food on the ta­ble, peace in their neigh­bor­hoods, pro­tec­tion against op­pres­sion, and good fam­ily re­la­tion­ships. Well, utopias don’t ex­ist, and al­though Amer­ica is not per­fect, it is a great start.

For peo­ple who want the val­ues that once made Amer­ica great, I rec­om­mend they vote out the Democrats and es­tab­lish­ment Repub­li­cans. Sup­port Tea Party can­di­dates and those with Judeo-Chris­tian val­ues. Re­ject the bo­gus pro­pa­ganda and glob­al­ist agenda of the po­lit­i­cal left. Pray and stand for Amer­ica.
