In response to a recent letter to the editor titled “To-do list for another kind of dummy,” published in the Daily News on May 13:

I do not vote a straight party ticket. I study the candidates and try to make a good choice. 

I have been a dues-paying union member for more than 43 years.

My grown children have good teeth. 

I really do believe big government is a detriment to the individual.

No person should believe any media source a 100 percent. 

I believe in term limits for all elected persons. 

I do not believe we have any statesmen in the vein of our Founding Fathers. 

These men risked life and fortune for their convictions. I am a strong supporter of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights’ first 10 amendments.

Lastly, I believe we are in a moral decline as a nation. Atheists, dopers and gays are held in higher regard than ever before. The traditional family is fading away. Children have no respect for parents, teachers or even themselves. We have become a me-first society.

I know a lot of people will take issue with my thoughts. That is all right. Different opinions and civil disagreements are not a bad thing.
