There have been several anti-conservative, anti-Trump, anti-capitalism articles posted of late, even an article that was quasi anti-Christian. All were dripping with malignant malice.

I believe every American has the right to express their opinion. However, I refuse to attack individuals even if their opinions are slanted, contain gross inaccuracies or personally attack those with differing philosophies. I have never in my long life witnessed the current level of animosity driven by liberal Democrats. Their sole goal is to divide and conquer.

America was founded as a Christian nation, but the Democrats have removed every vestige of Christianity from our schools and public buildings, yet now support Islam.

Capitalism and free enterprise are the bed rock of our society and “Made America Great.” However, Democrats are doing their best to stifle capitalism and free enterprise especially at the grassroots level. Their goal is to convert America to socialism. Currently with all the rules and regulations it is almost impossible for an aspiring young person to establish a business. My wife and I were in business for over 60 years and were quite successful. Under the current rules and regulations there is no way we could have taken the step to owning our own businesses.

Current rules and regulations are slanted toward big corporations.

While many believe big business supports the Republicans, it’s a fact the that many of the richest men in America donate tens of millions to Democrat causes. Donate enough and you will have a seat at the table and be able to mold rules and regulations to your benefit. It’s obvious money talks!

Democrats continue to play the race card at every opportunity. If you have the courage to speak out, you will be labeled a White Supremacist, racist, homophobic, Islamophobic, misogynist or one of the other derogatory terms used to censor anyone who disagrees with liberal philosophies.

It was the Democrats who supported slavery, segregation, Jim Crow Laws, blocked Blacks right to vote, opposed school integration, factions even tried to block a woman’s right to vote.
Democrats structured welfare in a way that destroyed the black family unit. Welfare was designed to keep the black race in servitude one small step above slavery. Don’t believe me consider the facts. Democrat-controlled cities have the highest level of welfare, poverty, unemployment, crime and the poorest schools.

The Democrats condoned the riots in the aftermath of the George Floyd’s death, but refused to authorize the use of the National Guard on Jan. 6 and allowed the doors to the Capital to remain open. The Capital police serving as guides encouraged the public to encroach into the hallways of the capital and it was the Democratic Party that supported the arrest and incarceration without due process of individuals involved.

Members of the Democratic Party serving as instructors in our schools and colleges are leading the current anti-semitic, anti-Israel, pro Hamas protests.
The Democratic Party does not believe in the sanctity of life.

It’s all about power and control.
