LETTER: No to Democratic Party platform
To the Editor:
Government must be based on law; and political parties on principles. Anyone can pose as a unifier on 'honesty, integrity, and hard work' — no argument there. What about unity on the issues of taxes, sexual morality, marriage as a sacred institution, abortion?
The South Dakota Democratic Party platform supports: "A tax system which taxes all income levels", "full equality at national, state, and local levels for all, regardless of sexual orientation and gender identity", "a woman's right to make her own medical decisions [read: abort]."
A vote for a Democrat candidate, no matter how familiar or friendly, is a vote for the South Dakota Democratic Party platform.
