Keep family values out of politics

I cannot but be saddened, disgusted, and a bit angered when politicians of both parties try to score political points off of family values. Mainstream politics in the United States is itself responsible for the destruction of the American family. And both parties are equally to blame. Neither President George Bush nor Gov. Bill Clinton has anything to offer. Why should we believe their promises when the needs of families oppose the needs of the power that these men crave?

If America wants healthy families, it must question its political and economic systems. For these systems are based far too much on competition. This is our choice - competition or cooperation. Suan Mokkh, Surat Thani, Thailand
