Dear neighbors,

We quite often look outside of our Atlantic communities to find broader, rational consideration of voting. What we will choose today will define us. We allowed eight years of violence against our global community and we will not be offered an opportunity to continue that impact on potential global partners.

We can isolate ourselves in our dogmatic beliefs, selfish lifestyles, and fear of alternatives, but it will take real heroes among us to lead us away from the policies that erode our country and global relationships.

We expect San Francisco to be our world portal to such outreach,

Carter, Poplar Branch NC

Dear neighbors,

As we are reduced to consideration of three possible candidates for President, we can all share concerns about our economy, community and humanity. We are faced with an immediate issue of our domestic economy and its role in a global economy. We must face that such economic issues are a result of our lack of global community and humanity.

Do you see John, Hillary or Barack being capable of resolution of such moumental issues? Respond as if you are electing the LAST President of the United States of America because surely that could be the outcome in our economic and violent world.

Dear neighbors,

The campaign by Republicans has been defined. "In this time of war, I simply cannot let my campaign, be a part of aiding a surrender to terror," Romney told the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington.

The defining ignorance of that remark makes your consideration of our global role in economy, community and humanity important. More specifically, just how do we separate terror from a civil war in IRAQ and achieve security among all nations?

AS many have said, "VOTE as if you are electing the last President of the United States!"

Celebrate one world, in peace, with humanity and justice for all,
