During the election coverage I was appalled to hear the following statistics based on exit polls: 27 percent of the voters listed â€œmoral valuesâ€? as their first priority, and 86 percent of them voted for Bush!
What a message this sends about the intelligence of these voters. Doesnâ€™t lying come under the heading of moral values? What about sending ill-equipped troops into a premature and possibly unnecessary war? Running a campaign based on fear tactics and vicious attacks on the character of oneâ€™s opponent â€” isnâ€™t this an indicator of a lack of moral values? What about destroying our environment and using oneâ€™s office for personal financial gain? How interesting that all this can be overlooked as long as oneâ€™s candidate is against abortion and gay marriage.
What a sad commentary on the â€œmoralityâ€? of our nation. God bless America for the next four years â€” we desperately need it.
