A Fight For America’s Core Values
To the Editor:
The Republican Party recognizes that in a free society, the primary role of government is to protect the God-given inalienable rights of its citizens.
By contrast, today’s Democratic Party has been pulled to the far left of that ideal by those who seem to believe that America is inherently evil, and therefore government must control our actions, speech and thoughts.
Biden/Sanders’ elaborate “Unity” policies expose Biden’s plans for controlling us. For example, Biden proposes a version of AOC’s radical Green New Deal that will inevitably kill jobs, increase our taxes and energy costs astronomically, and cripple us with rolling blackouts and overbearing regulations, with no meaningful environmental benefit.
To fix racism, Ibram Kendi, a darling of Biden’s left-wing, proposes establishing a federal bureaucracy to approve and monitor all federal, state, and local policies, and even monitor public officials’ ideas. Totalitarianism.
Should the Democrats gain power, attacks on reputations and livelihoods that we’ve seen when individuals don’t speak the leftist narrative will escalate. Left-wing anarchist mobs will be emboldened to commit further violence and destruction.
America’s tyrannical transformation will be permanent because Democrats have told us what they’ll do to retain their power, and curtail ours:
*Add seats to the Supreme Court, and fill those seats with judges who change laws to fit their ideology, rather than interpret the constitutionality of laws.
*Add Puerto Rico and Washington DC as US states, giving Democrats four more Senate seats.
*Eliminate the Senate filibuster to silence minority voices.
*Abolish the Electoral College, leaving only large cities with a voice in national elections.
This election is a fight for America’s core values. If you believe in liberty over tyranny, prosperity over poverty, capitalism over socialism (think Venezuela), the rule of law over mob rule, then I urge you to get out and vote Republican.
The views expressed are my own, and not on behalf of the Legislative Council, of which I am a member.
