You Might Be A Democrat

Editor:

If you believe the federal government has lost its way, but it needs a better map, not abandonment, you might be a Democrat.

If you believe you can’t improve your debt problem by cutting your income, you might be a Democrat.

If you believe in your right to own guns, but are not afraid to discuss possibilities for reducing anti-social uses of firearms, you might be a Democrat.

If you think the federal government was right to use its powerful “bigness” to bring electricity and water and roads to rural America, you might be a Democrat.

The Democratic Party has always stood for bringing improvement, not cursing the problems.

Mr. Collins,

Just how is all that "Hope & Change" working out for you? It's not really doing very well for the millions who now are on government assistance, or the millions who are out of work or under-employed, or those who have simply dropped out of the work place because they are better off on "the dole". Have you been able to keep your doctor and your current health insurance as promised by a Democrat? I haven't. And what I was changed over to is apparently going to cost me 80% more, thanks to you benevolent Democrats. How often do you choose to "balance your budget" by actually incurring greater debt? If you are successful at that, please share your methodology with those of us who are struggling weekly with our budgets. And if you have found the secret to changing the black hearts of those who would abuse their freedoms to wreak havoc and death on their fellow citizens by the misuse of firearms, without removing the right of self defense from law abiding citizens, please share that with us as well.

America has a very storied past and it looks as if the future will be not as bright. Yes, there were many good things that happened to make this the most respected and sought to live in country in the world, and there certainly were many sordid issues that we had to confront and put behind us. But I would suggest to you that, as one journalist once wrote, the genesis of all this nation's problems historically, can fairly be found at the doorstep of the US Congress, whether controlled by either Democrat or Republican. So "Here's Your Sign". Wear it proudly.

I can say that in my opinion, the Democratic support for open borders and lax immigration scrutiny, and policy, more than likely, let the Boston Bombers exist in our country. Student visa's, right.......PC diversity policy VS common sense immigration policy. Homeland Security Chief Janet Napolitano has been conspicuously missing in the Boston incident...........

Noble, I'm not sure how long you've been a citizen ( you still have your English accent and that's cool) but I'm concerned about what you've learned about Democrats since becoming one. (I realized you are when I saw the Obama sticker show up on your bumper after the election.) This Country has had some great and wonderful Democrat Presidents in my lifetime and two come to mind now. Harry S. Truman, a man of the people. A man of courage who understood that leading sometimes means making decisions that can be unpopular but necessary. The Atom bombs dropped on Nagasake and Hiroshima Japan saved untold thousands of lives and ended a very bloody war. On Trumans desk was a wooden sign that said "The buck stops here." A Democrat to be proud of. The other I recall came to office with the birth of instant news and Television 'live'. When Inaugrated he paraphrased an earlier speech, but rung the bell when he said, "Ask not, what your Country can do for you, But what you can do for your Country. In the case of JFK he didn't last long enough for any of us to really see what he was made but in his brief time as leader, He stopped the Russians and Cuba in their tracks and was ready to take us to nuclear war over missiles off our shores. Yes these Democrats lead by 'giving' us a better map, Courage and conservative values. point number two next.

"can't improve your debt problem by cutting your income" This puzzles me. I guess today's Democrats believe that hard earned citizens dollars that are sent to Washington as taxes, are somehow Democrats income. When did that happen? Two of America's most profitable times of bountiful Treasuries occurred during tax cuts by JFK and Reagan, (notice I left off Bush because I know that's a hurtful point.) Recently I've heard Democrats in D.C. say we don't have a spending problem, we have a paying for it problem. They may be right in which case the problem is a BUYING problem with a credit card that's overdrawn. Stop Buying. Point three has never been raised by Democrats so lets move on. Point four is disconcerting because it assumes that the "Federal Government" is in Washington and somehow has it's own money and it's own power and can be benevolent. That assumption is wrong. Every penny of this country belongs to the People and through the generosity of the People and the "Voluntary contributions of their wealth to community improvement" has any of the Countries infrastructure been allowed to happen. It didn't come down from the elected it went up from the electorate. We are in charge. As for the last point I urge you to go back to Selma Alabama in the 60s see what was happening then read the Congressional Records from that time and still tell me about the caring Democrats. And if you go back another 100 years you'll see why it really hadn't changed. Noble, if those points help you feel good about being a Democrat, that's fine with me. This is America we have freedom of speech and much more but as for me I'm an American first and I'm ready to get my country back.
