Learn from this class

To all of you who have been relegated to second-class-citizen status by the Republicans—Katrina victims, the poor and middle class, African-Americans, gays and lesbians and those who are not religious-right Christians: I suggest you treat them the way they have treated us. Ignore them. And the best way to do that is to ignore them at the voting booths.

If you are truly listening to the Republican candidates, you will realize that the only change for the future of this nation if they win is to make it worse than it is now. Vote Democratic.

— Lloyd Kay


Thanks for reading through to the end…

We share your inclination to get the whole story. For the past 25 years, Xpress has been committed to in-depth, balanced reporting about the greater Asheville area. We want everyone to have access to our stories. That’s a big part of why we've never charged for the paper or put up a paywall.

Xpress needs help, too. We hope you’ll consider signing up to be a member of Xpress. For as little as $5 a month — the cost of a craft beer or kombucha — you can help keep local journalism strong.

Before you comment

The comments section is here to provide a platform for civil dialogue on the issues we face together as a local community. Xpress is committed to offering this platform for all voices, but when the tone of the discussion gets nasty or strays off topic, we believe many people choose not to participate. Xpress editors are determined to moderate comments to ensure a constructive interchange is maintained. All comments judged not to be in keeping with the spirit of civil discourse will be removed and repeat violators will be banned. See here for our terms of service. Thank you for being part of this effort to promote respectful discussion.

    You sound like one of those crazies who think everyone should have health care and a good education. How would you know you were rich if there were no poor people. And who would mow the grass and cook your food or marry you? Please think this through before you start complaining about this great country we live in. We need an exploitable labor pool!

    ok, this fake Traveleh needs their IP banned.

    posing as someone else is unnacceptable. can we find out what other names this IP has posted under before they’re banned, though?

    oh, and vote Ron Paul. end the american empire. no democrat candidate will do that. obama will close some iraq military bases, sure, but he’ll leave the other 700 in 130 countries that (generally) don’t want us there open. europe can defend itself with its own money, thank you.

    and hillary? c’mon, whitewater wasn’t a joke, just ignored proof of their corruption.
