Perot: Not a Wasted Vote

Suggestions that a vote for Ross Perot will be a wasted vote have crept into the voting public's thought. I cannot agree, even though it is nearly impossible for Mr. Perot to be elected. A large vote for Perot will signal a growing dissatisfaction with the politics of Washington. Perot has brought to the surface the fact that Americans don't like how our system has evolved. Government has become an entity unto itself, with no party or president able to control it. This is what Perot means when he says th at it is no longer a "government of the people" but has become a government over the people. Americans deserve the right to feel that their vote does count. A vote says something that will be heard at all levels of government, by both the winners as well as the loser. Betty Bradley, Franklin, N.C.
