Friends, it’s been a while since I’ve posted, and for that I apologize. Not that I haven’t thought about it multiple times. Like many of you, I’ve been watching the unbelievable political circus that seems to have no end to the insanity. Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem that it’s going to end anytime soon.
I truly am beginning to believe that the Democrats are the Party of Death. Death upon demand to the unwanted and innocent, public shaming of those who do not bow down to their mantra, endless persecution to those in power who oppose the insane policies of the Democratic Party, and division to all so as to easily control the rest. In other words, Death to the Republic.
By no means is the following a complete list of the egregious actions of the Democrat Party, just the most outrageous.
The first is the outrageous passage of the law in New York permitting late term abortions on babies (yes, babies!) that are viable outside the womb. Worse and most disturbing part of this was the outright celebration of the New York legislature and Governor when this law passed.
Now please forgive me for the following rant…
The legal definitions of a fetus are rooted in the manipulations of the Supreme Court in 1973 in order to satisfy the Due Process clause of the 14th Amendment. Indeed, any legal definition of a fetus must ignore the fact that the “clump of cells” is a developing human being, and is thus alive. Thus, the legality is met that the “clump of cells” is akin to cancer, is like a diseased foreign body, and can be removed without fear of prosecution for the murder of another human being.
Because that is exactly what it is. Murder.
I fully understand that people make mistakes, and sometimes that mistake results in the miracle of life. However, one should not compound that mistake by murdering an innocent baby. I know a couple of women that have had abortions and have told me in confidence that they regret and mourn for their aborted babies, and wish they had not done it.
For politicians to not only celebrate the passage of such a law that legalizes murder but to also extend taxpayer funding to an organization that provides such services is an abomination to the American Citizen and God.
Second is the radicalization and hypocrisy of the Democrat Party. This could be split into several posts, but I’ll do my best to briefly summarize it all in a few paragraphs.
The apparent embracing of the failed philosophy of Socialism is being promoted front and center as the cornerstone of the Democrat Party’s platform. Examples abound from history (the latest from Venezuela) of the destructiveness of this philosophy as a governmental system. And yet the touting of Socialism to cure all the ills from healthcare to social injustice is being promoted by the Democrat Party.
For the Democrat Party to foist Socialism upon the rest of the country, they would need to turn the country into California. California is almost totally under the Democrat’s control. Every week we hear about new taxes and laws being passed that defy common sense (banning plastic drinking straws, for instance). This is where the following comes into play: Immigration and Voting.
One of the biggest fights between President Trump and the Democrats that we have seen is on the issue of Immigration. The Democrats are all for the status-quo, which allows almost unlimited immigration from countries that are socialist in nature, which means that the majority of the immigrants would vote for Democrat Party candidates. President Trump (and some, but not all Republicans) are for building a barrier and restricting/reforming immigration policies & laws to something approaching common sense and sanity. Where this is going to end is anyone’s guess at this point in time.
Voting is a sore point with the Democrats. The Hildebeast lost the last election due to the Electoral College vote, but won the popular vote. There is a movement by Democrat controlled State legislatures to circumvent the Electoral College, but that probably will be challenged in the courts.
Of more concern is voter fraud, which is exacerbated by “motor-voter” laws and the objections of Democrats to voter ID laws. Election boards are required by law to purge their voter roles periodically, but don’t since that will allow for election fraud from both parties (although it does seem to benefit Democrats more than Republicans). The last election saw the practice of “ballot harvesting,” of which lends itself to fraud.
The basis of our Republic is the ability of the American citizen to be heard by the government. One of those ways is by the election of officials through voting. The voting system must therefore be beyond reproach. As it stands today, it is not, and is suspect in Democrat-controlled states like California and cities like Chicago.
The Democrats are also no strangers to hypocrisy. For instance:
- Several years ago, all the leading Democrats (Pelosi, Schumer, Reid, Obama, et. al.) all stated that a wall on our Southern border was necessary. Now they are opposed to it politically because President Trump (a Republican) made it a campaign promise.
- If a Democrat is credibly accused of sexual or racial misconduct, it’s no big deal. If a Republican even has a hint of sexual or racial misconduct, it’s scorched earth to remove or defame that person. Think of the verifiable actions of Governor Ralph Northam, Senator Corey Booker, former Represenative Barney Frank, and contrast that with the treatment of now Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavenaugh on an unverified accusation and you’ll understand.
I can probably go on, but quite frankly, it’s damned overwhelming.
In my last post, I had the lofty goal of trying to put forth a few thoughts to retrieve our country back from the Democrats. Outside of pushing back on every Democrat-sponsored proposal and voting against every Democrat Party candidate, I’ve got nothing. And perhaps that’s good – it’s simple and direct.
Starting local and working our way up may be the best way to effect change. Supporting those candidates that support the Constitution and the People in actions not words is also a way to change the political landscape. And as a complementary plan, support those organizations that try and keep government accountable such as Project Veritas and the Second Amendment Foundation.
Until next time.
