To say that Dave Moloney does not care about the well-being of people or is untruthful is just false. I serve on the board of Lift-Up with Dave and his insight and compassion are genuine qualities that help him serve many in our area. I’ve known Dave for 18 years and have seen him assist and love others through many acts of kindness, compassion and generosity. I find Dave to be a fine human being who actually cares about the well-being of people – all while being a Republican!

As an independent voter, it pains me to see our country fight the way it does over politics (and it comes from both sides of the aisle) to the extent of tarnishing peoples character in online forums such as these. Surely elected officials (and candidates) of all political persuasions serve in order to help others. But, just because there are major differences between how each side believes problems can be solved does not mean they don’t want them solved.

It’s time that we who love this country realize that issues are issues and have multiple opinions and solutions. Different people can believe in different solutions without that making them bad people. Let’s keep issues as issues and people as people! As a pastor, my prayer is that of the Apostle Paul who said in Romans 12:18 If possible, so far as it depends on you, be at peace with all men.”
