There was a time in the history of our country where Democrats were more for the working man and the middle class, while the Republican Party leaned more toward the affluent. Over the years, however, this, like many other things in our world, gradually changed.
Today, it is the Republican Party who champions the middle class; while the Democrats, the Liberals, and Progressives favor welfare, big government, and a nanny state.
The Democrats of today have given up their morals and have turned their backs on traditional values. They are strong proponents of abortion–the murdering of innocent children, and they have trivialized traditional marriage (a union between a man and a woman) and opted instead for the support of marriages between two men or two women and consider that to be legal.
(Democrats claim that these “peripheral” things are of little concern to them, and they are members of the Democratic Party for the “bigger issues.”)
One of the Democrat’s strong leaders is Nancy Pelosi, a Catholic who has been virtually excommunicated from her Church due to her views on abortion. Pelosi was recently given the “Margaret Sanger Award” because of her “leadership, excellence, and outstanding contributions to the reproductive health and rights movement”over the course of her career. She was presented this award by Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion provider in the United States. Sanger advocated eugenics and described children as “human weeds.” She also opened the Birth Control Clinical Research Bureau in Manhattan to provide contraceptives to women.
Why would any modern day Christian want to revere a person like Nancy Pelosi, who is recognized by a Margaret Sanger? Pelosi is the same woman who told America, “We have to pass the Obamacare bill to know what is in it!”
That is probably one of the most backward statements I have heard in a generation, but it seems to be the mindset of the Democratic Party and the people who run it.
Pelosi also pushes racism every chance she gets in an attempt to divide our country and deflect the failed policies of our president from the minds of potential voters.
Let’s discuss some of the failed policies of the Democrats that are in play today, as the present president is a Democrat:
Obama, with a Democratic Congress, rammed through a large, very expensive, and disastrous thing called Obamacare, costing every taxpayer dearly! He presides over a sluggish economy and has for his five years in office. His “shovel ready” jobs were never shovel ready, nor was this president ever ready for his job as president!
Health care should be left to the individual states and not controlled by the Federal Government. It is too complicated, as Obama and his cronies eventually realized. To throw a “blanket” of laws and regulations over an industry that is 1/6th of our economy is beyond the ability of any government.
So what Obama has succeeded in doing is destroying one of the best health care systems in the world under the guise of wanting to insure everyone. Under the “leadership” of Kathleen Sebelius, it is an abject failure; and more lies have been perpetrated about this farce than one can imagine. Not only did Sebelius lose her last page on her last day; I think she lost her mind someplace along the way!
Had President Obama not lied to the American people about Obamacare and its “attributes” in the first place, he would never have been reelected. So I could never be a disciple of a man who has no credibility.
I believe in lower taxes. Democrats don’t!
Then, of course, we have his foreign policy … which are dismal.
Syria, Libya, Russia, Afghanistan, you name it. With this neophyte in charge, I’m frightened!
Putin pulled him out of the fire with Syria, and now our weak president flounders on a daily basis as to how to handle Putin and any foreign policy for which he has absolutely NO EXPERIENCE.
He is a weak, incompetent leader who was elected because of his skin color and now plays the race card, along with Holder and the others, every chance he gets. He was put into a unique position to be able to help the black community, and he has failed it miserably (right along with the rest of us!)
More people are on welfare today than ever before. Food Stamps have doubled under his tutelage. Democrats advocate working less and exploring their “passions.” Consequently, unemployment benefits are ever extending; and the nanny state is evolving strong and well!
Everything I object to and do not believe in is what the Democrats endorse.
The Keystone Pipeline, for example, should be a no brainer. Not for Dems. This would only strengthen our relations with Canada, make us more energy-independent, and create needed jobs. So what does the Democratic president say? “NO!” They have erroneously called us the Party of “NO!”
They should think again!
It was hard enough to live through Obama’s first term in office; but 4 more years with this lying, socialist, incompetent, feckless person as our president is unbearable. To think if he had told the truth, he would not be our president today! What a pity that Americans have to be subjected to this kind of man who is allowed to systematically destroy the great country we once had.
Are our children ever going to be able to deal with the debt this man has accrued?
All he does is spend money to no avail. And the multitude of scandals surrounding him are innumerable; and in his “transparent” administration, we cannot get to the bottom of any of them to adjudicate them or made the true culprits accountable!
Obama has no respect for the Constitution and walks all over it every chance he gets.
He forced Obamacare into “Law” and has changed and delayed it unilaterally over 30 times!
How does a president do this constitutionally? He can’t! But this one does!
After hearing so many of my reasons for why I could never be a Democrat, I hope it becomes apparent and unmistakable why I am a fervent member of the Republican Party and a true Conservative! I can only pray that people who do call themselves Democrats are beginning to wake up and see their misguided ways and help us return to a Judeo-Christian country founded on the Constitution with certain unalienable rights, under God, in the pursuit of our happiness!
