We all want the same freedoms

In a recent letter (Dec. 2), a "worried, not whining" writer is concerned about losing America. In her view, we must all fight for the right to life, freedom and liberty, religious freedom, God-designed marriage, one nation under God, and never give up on America the beautiful.

She then asks, "What are liberals and Democrats fighting for?"

I suggest that they are the same exact things.

It is only each person's interpretation of God that makes the difference. The God of religious freedom has many faces and all of them are true. Some say that their God is more true than another's and that everyone must believe as they do. But every person in a free society (thank you, Founding Fathers) can choose his own religious opinions and interpret his own God. So live and let live, please. And let's find things that we can work together on to keep America free.
