For more than 50 years, I have watched the Democratic Party's descent into Marxism in their search for the utopian society. Over the years, those Democrats who were moderate to conservative have been forced from that party. Many who left became Republicans. Those remaining are hard-left radicals.
Democrats are contentious, arrogant, untrustworthy and deceitful, but in their minds they are the ruling class -- elitists who are above the law or public opinion. They have no inhibitions about making laws contrary to the wishes of the people, while ridiculing and dismissing those same people as ignorant if they object.
They exhibit no qualms nor offer any excuses for their amoral support for the murder of countless unborn souls as a matter of convenience, nor for their glorification of homosexuality. They are obstinate in their belief that, no matter the issue, they have superior knowledge and are always right. They will not debate or reason with their opponents, but instead resort to the politics of personal destruction. When given power, they use it in a dictatorial manner, intending to manipulate and regulate an otherwise free people.
The history of that party is rife with anti-Americanism; constitutional disregard; anti-Christianity; pro-slavery; involvement with and support of the Ku Klux Klan; opposition to civil rights; authoring Jim Crow laws; intimidation; and even murder. Yet, our black population, once their chosen victims, are now solidly aligned with their former tormentors.
Some will say Democrats have changed, but their rent-a-mob tactics and use of union thugs to intimidate and even physically attack their opponents belies that. It is instead more reminiscent of the Nazi Brownshirts.
All this and more is the sorry legacy of the Democrats -- not compassion and caring as they would have us believe. If you didn't already know, you do now.
