Voting values

To the editor:

Values voters are nothing new in 2004! Everyone votes their values. If you don't place a priority on heterosexual marriage, life before birth, or whatever issues "they" say brought out the voters, you place a priority on the economy, the influence the United States should have in world affairs, party loyalty, or simply "kicking out the bums" because you think someone else could do better, or at least no worse, than the incumbent. And not voting is a value as well.

In fact, everything you do reflects what you value. Values don't lie dormant for four years, waiting for the next election cycle. Your values and your everyday decisions are inextricably woven together.
