These values are the American Way. But last week, we watched as a dangerously extreme Republican Party tore them down, speech by speech, at their convention. They spent an entire week promising to "take America back." But their platform called for moving our county backwards:
- A call to outlaw abortion in all cases -- with no exception for rape or incest
- A constitutional amendment defining marriage as "one man and one woman"
- A voucher system to replace Medicare
- A ban on women fighting in combat
- Public displays of the Ten Commandments
- The lowering of taxes for the top 1%
I choose the American Way.
