- Disagreeing with the Gore endorsement (Letter to the Editor )
I cannot disagree more strongly with your endorsement of Vice President Al Gore for President. I would like to take this opportunity to explain why Governor George W. Bush is a better choice than Mr. Gore is. You first mention Mr. Gore's plan to use the surplus to pay down the national debt. I submit that the surplus is a result of collecting more taxes than necessary. Therefore, any excess taxes should be returned to us, the taxpayers, in the form of tax cuts. I think you are mistaken in saying that Mr. Bush's plan "encourages Americans to rely on the government for their retirement." Quite the opposite, Mr. Bush's plan allows for investment into private funds instead of relying on the current system that produces lower than inflation returns, which inherently decreases the value of each dollar put into the system.
