I think of DEMOCRATS as an acronym for "Demagogic, Extreme Malcontents, Obstructing, Corrupting and Regressing by Attacking Traditions and Standards." (I had a really tough time settling on the "D" since there were so many pertinent alternatives: Death-Dealing, Deceitful, Dangerous, Destructive, Degenerate, Disordered, Deranged, Deviant, Dysfunctional, Depraved, Demented, Deplorable, Decadent, etc.) These traditions and standards include self-reliance, personal virtue and responsibility, monogamous and heterosexual marriage, the nuclear family, private initiative, free enterprise, the rule of law and the sanctity of human life. DEMOCRATS are working to destroy all of them. DEMOCRATS support the regressive Roe v. Wade decision, which reduced us from a unique nation based on the premise that we are endowed with our fundamental human rights by God (see the second paragraph of the Declaration), to just another nation based on might makes right. They have degraded the moral character of our people, building a culture of dependency with a prevailing attitude of entitlement. Obama talks a good line about uniting us, but he and his party practice divide and conquer with a vengeance. They divide our people by class, sex, race, religion, generations, language groups and financial interests into multiple constituencies, each bought by one or more typically unconstitutional government entitlements that DEMOCRATS can stay in power by promoting, and then instilling fear of their loss. They divide us into tax payers and tax beneficiaries. They divide income from work, knowledge from schooling, certification from achievement, advancement from merit, benefits from fiscal realities, morality from law, power from accountability, legislation from constitutional authority, voting from citizenship and being alive, responsibilities from freedoms, punishment from crime, adverse consequences from incompetence, the right to life from prenatal lives (so much for the "little guy"), children from parental authority, fatherhood from family, religion from moral development, and sex from love, commitment and marriage. Their operating principles appeal to the worst in us. They include "envy thy neighbor," "blame thy neighbor," “falsely accuse thy neighbor,” "corrupt thy neighbor," "soak thy neighbor," and "abort thy neighbor." In the slash and burn politics of the so-called DEMOCRATS the Party harvests the votes and reaps the short-term, windfall profits of political power by cultivating anger and despair while destroying the self-reliance, self-confidence, self-esteem, initiative, hopes and dreams of the people they claim to be the saviors of. Their message is "You don't have a prayer without us." Their message is "You can't.” It is a constant torrent of psychological and spiritual poison.
I vote Republican because even a decent Democrat’s seat counts toward the majority such that the worst of them would control all the committees of a legislative chamber. Should they win a majority, much good and necessary legislation would never get out of committee and much that is bad, such as the health care law, could be approved and signed into law. It’s not worth the risk.
