Dear Editor, As a Canadian who lived in the U.S. for many years and who believes strongly in the American values of yesteryear, the America that stood for liberty and was a welcome haven to those yearning to be free, I am greatly encouraged by the forthright and humane policies outlined by Dennis Kucinich. His is a voice of sanity in a country which appears from the outside to have gone mad. If Americans have the sense to elect him president there will no longer need to be a "war on terror" or any of the other barbaric and retrograde nonsense of past and particularly present administrations. His compassionate and forward-looking ideas will by themselves bring terrorism as we know it to an end. Please vote for this calm and courageous man!
