Election strategy.

Now that the 2004 general election is on the horizon, I look forward to reading letters from your readers, like those that appeared in your June issue.

I am one of those progressive voters who will vote for John Kerry because I do not want more damage done to me or my country by the Bush-Cheney Administration. Because I am a labor organizer and a single, gay man, I see and experience differences between the Republicans and the Democrats every waking hour of my life. For that reason, I do not comprehend others who say there are none. I'm not sure what their criteria are for that assessment; however, they must not be mine.

There is one thing I would like to offer Progressive readers who consider themselves progressive. We rightly denounce the Bush-Cheney Administration for unilateralism. Therefore, before you vote for Ralph Nader or some other third party or independent candidate, practice multilateralism, and think about the millions of ordinary Americans who honestly say, "My life and my country are better off with a Democratic Administration."

Please join with us in solidarity to make that happen!
