Digging A Bigger Hole

I watched the last democratic debate debacle. Will someone please throw the Democrats another shovel so they can dig a little deeper, a little faster? How does a political party think they only need a platform of ‘let’s get rid of our president’? In my 77 years of life, I have never seen a political party so wrapped up in hate that they can only run on the promise of I am the best person to get rid of POTUS Trump. Why? What is so great about open borders?

What happened to improving healthcare, education for all and some of the other things they used to talk about? It is getting harder and harder to remember what the Democrats stand for because the only battle cry you hear from them anymore is, we will get rid of our president! They do say that when they get in office, we will have a socialistic government. They use the word Capitalism like it is something dirty. The young are no longer taught history, so they do not know what Socialism stands for. I cannot imagine any American wanting a move towards Socialism. Why would we want our government to run all our personal lives? Things could not get much worse in our justice system. We have many wonderful men and women who are dedicating their lives to making America safe. The democrats seem to fight them every step of the way. What can possibly be the reasoning behind this?

Currently, our country does a very poor job of taking care of the poor and disadvantaged. Yet with all the inadequacies we have, why is that the Democrats want to give education, healthcare, and housing away for nothing to illegal aliens? I cannot understand the reasoning behind this, if there is any. The democrats have always claimed to be the party of the poor and working class. But look at the Democratically controlled cities like Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York City and Baltimore. Do any of us want our cities looking like those? Los Angeles can’t figure out why their homeless problem is getting worse. Hard for me to imagine, but I would think open borders do not help.

The Democrats constantly are saying Republicans are destroying families by separating the children from their parents at the border. The problem is that many of the children did not come with parents. We Americans constantly place our values on other countries. It DOES NOT WORK! I mentioned in a previous blog that I have a picture of four newborns, in a Guatemalan orphanage, that were found the previous couple days in garbage cans. That is not an infrequent occurrence in third world countries and yet, we worry about the unsanitary conditions our country provides the families at the borders. The people who spout this nonsense have just never traveled in third world countries. They are oblivious to the world around them. What a shame? Perhaps if they spent a couple days in a hut, made out of manure and mud, they would see our border facilities for handling illegals is similar to them living in the Ritz Carlton.

Democrats, please keep up your rally cries. I love them, as I think most republicans do. And when you have dug that hole you are in a little deeper, perhaps you can fill it up with all the freebies you are wanting to give away to illegals that your own citizens cannot have.
