Everyone deserves the same rights without fighting for them

To the editor:

Nearly every day, some special interest group, hate group or individual tries to convince me what to think, how to feel, or even who I should persecute. I, however, like most Iowans, have a mind of my own.

I strongly believe that every American deserves the same rights and freedoms as everyone else without having to fight for them. Therefore I voted “Yes” to retain Iowa Supreme Court Justice David S. Wiggins.

I believe he lives up to the motto on the Iowa state flag: “Our liberties we prize and our rights we will maintain.”
