Lib­er­als on the wrong side of is­sues

Cecil Whig - - OPINION -

FROM: DAVID E. BOWER NORTH EAST

While watch­ing the DNC con­ven­tion, I was struck by the gap be­tween Democrats and their per­ceived en­e­mies, all con­ser­va­tives. To them we are worse than rad­i­cal Is­lamic ter­ror­ists. “The en­emy of my en­emy is my friend”.

Be­cause we want them erad­i­cated, the ter­ror­ists must be do­ing some­thing right. At­tor­ney Gen­eral Loretta Lynch’s so­lu­tion to Is­lamic ter­ror­ism is to treat them with “love.” Sec­re­tary of State John Kerry thinks re­frig­er­a­tors and air con­di­tion­ers are big­ger threats. Is this a world turned up­side down or what?

Im­mi­gra­tion? Ac­cord­ing to the lib­er­als, the more il­le­gal aliens in our coun­try, the bet­ter. No mat­ter how much it costs our coun­try, they rep­re­sent Demo­cratic votes. If the con­ser­va­tives ob­ject, just paint them as racists.

The po­lice? To con­ser­va­tives, the po­lice are the only thing stand­ing be­tween so­ci­ety and ut­ter chaos. To lib­er­als, the po­lice are evil through and through (one bad cop rep­re­sents all).

Vot­ing? Lib­er­als think photo IDs make it too dif­fi­cult to vote and is un­fair, this in a coun­try where you have to show iden­ti­fi­ca­tion to ac­quire a li­brary card.

Abor­tion? To a pro-life con­ser­va­tive, a child in the womb is a holy, won­drous mir­a­cle of God and cer­tainly not to be in­ter­rupted at any point in the baby’s jour­ney. To a pro-choice lib­eral, the baby is just an ag­gra­va­tion, an ac­ci­dent to be “fixed” in case of care­less sex­ual be­hav­ior. Mrs. Clin­ton is sup­pos­edly a chil­dren’s ad­vo­cate but a child’s big­gest chal­lenge is sim­ply mak­ing it out of the womb. Her vice pres­i­den­tial pick is pro­choice but he is said to be against abor­tion. This is a con­tra­dic­tion in terms. If Mr. Kaine is pro-choice, he wants abor­tion to con­tinue. He ob­vi­ously thinks be­ing pro-choice is a neu­tral po­si­tion. It’s not. In my mind, it’s a coward’s po­si­tion.

The military? Con­ser­va­tives think a strong military is the only path to peace. En­e­mies have to re­spect you. To lib­er­als, it’s merely a place to try so­cial ex­per­i­ments such as al­low­ing ev­ery one to use what­ever bath­room they so de­sire.

Lib­er­als and con­ser­va­tives do have one thing in com­mon. Each think the other is de­stroy­ing our coun­try. The com­ing elec­tion I con­sider the most cru­cial in my 74-year-old life­time. God help us if Hil­lary wins!
