I care about Tony Snow. I care because he is human and in need. Maybe that's why I'm a Democrat. I believe Americans, as a community, can care for each other, rich and poor, young and old, Republican and Democrat.
That's why I support universal health care. I support it because there is no us and them when we get sick with cancer. There is no us and them when we face death. There is no us or them when a child is born. We are all humans with basic human needs. We should all get the same health care as Tony Snow, paid by the government with access to the best doctors to meet our needs.
I care about Tony Snow. That's why I say it's time to end the war on science.
Our prayers will not save Tony Snow. But, there is a chance that medicine, backed by decades of scientific research, will. Today we can save many people who would have died 20 years ago, because of scientific research. What prayer could not achieve, science has achieved. Prayer has its place, but we should not pray in place of science. We must end the war on stem cell research and increase research on the processes that control cell growth so that we can cure degenerative diseases and cancer.
I care about Tony Snow. I care about everyone who is facing death. That's why I want our soldiers out of Iraq. They are facing death every day and their families are suffering here at home because of a failed war in Iraq. It's time to bring our soldiers back to their families and let them live in peace. I believe in peace because I care about others. Maybe, that's why I'm a Democrat.
I care about Tony Snow. I know that cancer may be caused by toxins in the environment, in our foods, and in products we make. That's why I believe in strong environmental regulation. We must end the war on government regulation. We need the EPA to protect us from hazardous chemicals. We need the FDA to keep toxins out of our food. We need the NRC to keep radioactivity out of the environment. We need strong government regulation to protect us from carcinogens.
I care about Tony Snow. Maybe, that's why I'm a Democrat. I'm a Democrat because I care about others than myself, my family and people who are like me. I even care about those who I disagree with. There, but for the grace of God, go all of us.
