No, these are not Democrat values (even if a Democrat writes it)

In response to Terry Downs’s Letter to the Editor (see after the jump): To the Editor:  Terry Downs’ letter to the Laconia Daily Sun on October 12 mostly  seems right, but his conclusion is baffling.  Most Americans probably share the three key values he identifies, personal freedom, equitable tax code with no one getting a …
