Signs of a decaying culture
I can remember when the Democrats were champions of the working class. Recent events and policies seem to indicate that they are no longer governing on behalf of ordinary Americans. For example:
• The left just failed in an attempted coup d’etat against the duly elected president of the United States using false information. Banana republic comes to mind!
• Their position on abortion has morphed into making it legal to kill a fully formed baby! And they lecture conservatives about walls being immoral?
• They now believe that there are more than two sexes.
• They have redefined marriage as the union between a man and a woman to something else!
• The left currently embraces sanctuary cities and states. They release or fail to apprehend illegal alien criminals.
• They want open borders allowing criminals, terrorists and anyone in. The House of Representatives has already voted to allow these illegal aliens to vote.
It was recently reported that 70 percent of Democrats embrace socialism. In the history of the world socialism has failed every time it was tried and it always will.
• Not one Democrat voted to reduce taxes. Not one. Their disdain for President Trump exceeds their concern for helping real Americans.
• Free speech is no longer allowed. Check the number of conservative speakers that were banned from speaking at many colleges and universities. Even several liberal journalists have been banned from MSNBC and CNN (Alan Dershowitz, Glen Greenwald, Matt Taibbi and Jeremy Sahill and others) for daring to suggest that the whole Russian collusion thing may not be true.
• They also want to erase Christianity as a moral force in American life.
These are signs of a decaying culture. If continued there cannot be a happy ending. Traditional values and common sense have been abandoned. Folks, we can do better!
