A Letter to a "Middle of the Road Moderate" Non-Latino Friend About the Moral Difference Between Democrats and Republicans.

By James Vega

Dear __________ ,

I've just read your letter in which you criticize my "lack of objectivity" about the upcoming elections and assert your view that "I don't believe the people who dominate the Republican Party now are really any less moral or empathic toward minorities, the poor and disadvantaged than are the people who dominate the Democratic Party. I find much to disagree with in the orthodoxy of both political parties but I simply do not believe either one is genuinely less moral than the other.

Read the entire memo.
