What do Democrats believe in and what do they stand for? To figure that out we could just review their history and examine what they are currently pushing. But that method is not all that useful this year since, as polls show, most Democrats do not care about their candidates or its platform. They will be voting against Trump. Because they hate him. And us, his supporters. That’s it.
Sometimes though, I run into Democrats who say they don’t support many of the things that Democrats stand for. But voting for a Democrat means supporting all their positions, either implicitly or explicitly. Saying otherwise is just cheap meaningless hypocritical blather.
Voting for Democrats means you support or are voting:
And approving of the fraudulent seditious coup attempt of a president.
For a likely and far left Harris presidency. Biden has serious health and cognitive issues.
For socialism despite its miserable failure always and everywhere. The Heritage Foundation’s Index of World Economic Freedom indicates that Scandinavian countries have more economic freedom than the US. The socialist notion that the US should be more like them flies in the face of the evidence.
To undercut this administration’s progress on trade. Previous trade agreements, and some proposed, did, or would do, a great deal of harm to America and our workers. The TPP, for example, contained more than 5,000 pages with nothing but special interest carve-outs.
To eliminate energy independence. You are also voting for higher energy prices making it more challenging for businesses and jobs to stay in the US. and you are voting to force our military back into places we have no business being costing money and American blood. And also, for reducing our standard of living.
For much higher taxes.
For abortion. If you are a small ‘c’ Democrat voting christian, you have to believe that the commandment ‘thou shalt not kill’ does not apply to you. I wonder if they have prepared an answer for supporting the killing of babies when the good Lord someday asks them about it. And making commitments to leftist political views more important than their ‘christian’ faith.
To change society’s mores and moral boundaries. For example,
California’s Gov. Gavin Newsom recently signed a bill reducing penalties for sodomy with ‘willing’ minors.
To support the adoption of a radical sex education curriculum for children in middle and even grade school, now advancing countrywide.
To reinstitute Obama’s diktats mandating that people do things that are against their religious beliefs or conscience. The Little Sisters of the Poor will again be required to pay for contraception, photographers will be required to photograph gay ‘weddings, etc. Religious freedom and liberty will be curtailed.
Gun control to take away our guns and our natural right to protect ourselves. Only one Democrat in Congress currently has an NRA ‘A’ rating.
For judges who dislike the constitution and thus are against liberty. Laws will be based on judicial mandates, whatever they decide it to be that day.
By failing to stand up for law and order and not condemning Antifa/Marxist BLM, you are implicitly supporting leftist rioting and violence and the defund the police movement.
For Biden’s proposal to re-join the Paris Climate Agreement even though US emissions reductions are better those countries who signed the agreement.
Incompetent leftist forest management policies. California is a Mediterranean climate meant to frequently burn. That burning should occur when the underbrush is just a few inches tall rather than many feet high that create incredible infernos. And even firenadoes.
For open borders and the consequent destruction of America society as we know it.
For the leftist big lie ‘racism’ charade in the world’s least racist society that has ever existed. It’s a distraction from real problems we should address, some of which exist because of leftist ‘efforts’ in the first place.
